Coaching Complexity: Exploring Systemic Coaching in Practice This research project was published April 2014 as part of the MSc in Coaching and Behavioural Change at Henley Business School. The research explores ‘systemic coaching’ from the perspective of the coach, given its growing popularity. The Coaching at Work 2013 reader’s survey said that 31% of coaches plan to undertake continuous professional development in systemic coaching. However, current thinking in this area is largely descriptive and based on practitioner experience.

Twelve experienced coaches were interviewed about their systemic coaching practice.  The analysis of the research provides a blue print for systemic coaching.

Coaches are invited to start testing the models, diagrams and tables developed by the researcher in this paper to further contribute to our understanding of this field. If this is of interest, please get in touch.
