Know Your System

Using the holistic and complementary methods help you receiving deep insights into your business internal organization and/or external ecosystem in order to solve problems and/or achieve your goals faster. 

Let’s start a description of the topic with the famous quote of Nikola Tesla

If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.

A quote that remains enigmatic even today. Numerous research projects strive to unravel its meaning. Meanwhile, innovators seek inspiration from Tesla’s legacy for their creations, and individuals introspect to understand themselves or enhance their energy potential for a clearer perception of the world. However, the current state, including the business world, suggests that the secrets of the universe, as implied by Tesla’s quote, still elude us.

Leaders and management can have a significant impact on the image of the world and on the values of society. Therefore, it makes sense to us that managers also look at themselves and even innerselves and then into the systems that lead them. The famous Deepak Chopra greatly contributed to the popularization of spirituality in management, the same also yoga, feng shui, tai chi, qi gong and other practitioners of complementary methods penetrating the business world. In addition to all these methods, we should expose the systemic constellations method of Bert Hellinger. Already at the first meeting with the method and without any knowledge and preliminary preparations, the method surprised with the clarity of the messages and the depth of insights into a particular business situation. As a method providing insights into the hidden dynamics of past and present relations, business systemic constellations are now widely employed by numerous consultants and coaches. They serve to advise management in companies, facilitate conflict resolution, and navigate critical situations within organizations. This method is utilized across diverse decision-making processes. Systemic constellations find application in both extensive public and private systems, including banking, insurance, and large international corporations, as well as in smaller systems like small to medium-sized enterprises, including family businesses.

Method of Business Constellations

How would you describe the concept of business systemic constellations to someone new to family or business constellations? The facilitator leads the issue holder (client) through a process of clearly defining the problem, selecting key representatives, and establishing success criteria (pre-constellation phase). Moreover, the facilitator shapes a ‘field of emptiness‘ where hidden energy dynamics of the current situation and relationships surface, fostering the process of ‘healing’ and establishing order among the involved parties.

The messages from the field are profound and often unexpected, unveiling hidden dynamics and unknown elements in the client’s business situation. The process extends beyond revelation, delving into the energetic resolution of underlying causes. Participants usually experience relief and relaxation by the end. Empowered with insights and order, the client returns to their company, equipped with enhanced knowledge for better decision-making and actions.

Individual constellations tell unique stories, yet they share common themes, such as revealing the influence of the past and the transformative power of forgiveness, a concept embraced by various spiritual cultures. Systemic constellations illuminate and often reshape our general behavior patterns. The historical influence intensifies with a company’s age, serving either as an obstacle or an incentive, contingent on the company’s relationship with its past – whether it involves past owners, brands, or contributors. Family systems significantly impact business constellations, particularly for founders and owners. This is particularly notable in family businesses where strong familial bonds often prevail.

The method of business systemic constellations has a broader application than mentioned below, encompassing:

  • Establishing a new company, ownership changes, mergers, and company sales.
  • Forming and finalizing business partnerships.
  • Defining key strategies for companies or organizations.
  • Formulating internationalization strategies or deciding on new markets and sales channels.
  • Determining support for individual projects or brands.
  • Appointing staff to key positions.
  • Replacing a job or job position.
  • Managing crisis situations or recurring challenges (illness, accidents, death, significant personnel turnover, customer attrition, increased trade receivables, etc.).
  • Addressing poor sales in specific markets, segments, or individual products.
  • Handling issues in particular departments.
  • Other scenarios.
