Organizational Constellation SIG
SIG Leader: Harrison Snow (firstname.lastname@example.org | 703-241-2421)
SIG Description: The intention of the Organizational Constellation SIG is to create a venue for participants to experience, explore and gain insight from this new methodology that is having a profound impact on executive decision-making in a variety of corporate settings.
The OC approach is based on the phenomenological work of Bert Hellinger with family systems and Rupert Sheldrake’s Field Theory. Although OC is fairly well known in Europe, it is just beginning to be introduced in North America.
The foundation of OC methodology is that organizations are systemic in nature. The parts that make up the whole are all part of a system that has an inherent order and balance. The performance or health of the system is enhanced when that inherent order and balance is maintained or restored. The system itself can be represented physically (by individuals or symbols) in a way that allows nonphysical information to become more visible.

Mission: The OC SIG is an Organizational Constellation practice group that meets on a regular basis to give its members the opportunity to develop their OC facilitation skills and experience the power of the OC process.
Who would benefit from attending:
- Do you have a challenging client or a client with a challenging situation?
- Are you are looking for insights on how to best deal with the current challenges in your work?
- Do you have a range of strategic options to consider?
If so, you may find OC to be particularly useful tool to have in your professional toolkit. Come discover the power of this new tool. Guests are welcome.
Feedback from a recent OC SIG meeting: “Thank you for such a good workshop. I enjoyed the exercises we did and learned an entirely new technique -- something you cannot often say about an experience when you've been around for a long time! I really appreciate your so generously sharing your expertise with us. It is amazing to me that people who don't know each other, and with very little information can use this process and actually discover what's not working in a situation -- something that too often does not happen after eons of analysis! I enjoyed meeting everyone and I had a good time too!”
Meeting Frequency: This SIG meets approximately once a month on a varying schedule. Often on a Saturday and we are experimenting with different days as well.
Time: Varies. Generally from 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Venue: Varies among Falls Church VA, McLean VA and Cleveland Park, DC public libraries
31 May 2013 3:00 PM • Cleveland Park Neighborhood Library
