Coaching typically begins with a systems entry assessment to understand the relationship/team or business’ current opportunities and challenges, define the scope of the relationship, identify priorities for action and establish specific desired outcomes.

Coaching sessions are usually conducted in person but in some situations can be conducted over the telephone, with each session lasting a previously established length of time. Between coaching sessions, the relationship/team may be asked to complete specific actions that support the achievement of the prioritized goals. The coach may provide additional resources in the form of relevant articles, checklists, assessments or models to support the individual's or business’ thinking and actions. The duration of the coaching relationship varies depending on needs and preferences.

Coaching sessions typically last for 60 to 90 minutes.

ORSC stands for Organisation and Relationship Systems Coaching. ORSC is an integrated and robust coaching model based on Relationship Systems Intelligence™. Beyond Emotional Intelligence (relationship with oneself) and Social Intelligence (relationship with other) is the realm of Relationship Systems Intelligence where one’s focus shifts to the relationship with the group, team or system. This approach creates sustainable and resilient teams and families.

ORSC is based on Systems Theory, Process Work, Family Systems Therapy, Alternative Dispute Resolution, Quantum Physics, Co-Active Coaching, and Taoism. At its core is the study of Relationship Systems Intelligence.

We are all part of complex systems such as our families, business partnerships, teams and communities.  Systems are like spiders webs; touch one strand and the whole structure moves.

Relationship Systems Work is different from working with individuals.  A system is composed of many parts, yet the sum is greater than those parts.  It is complex and self-regulating.  Relationship systems have a natural drive toward evolution and/or resolution.  For this reason the Systems Oriented Leader has one primary job: to reveal the system to itself.  By helping the system to see itself, its strengths, its obstacles, its potential, the leader can create the groundwork for the system to find its own answers.
