Systemic Coaching & Constellations:

The principles, practices and application for individuals, teams and groups

Originally published in 2012 the book was released again, in 2nd edition, in 2016 with a new chapter on ‘Belonging’ as well as several new case studies and updates. It has been bought by coaches, facilitators and consultants in over 25 countries. As its popularity grows it has enabled a deeper understanding of systemic coaching and the power and benefits of the philosophy that underpins it.

Describing application with individuals as well as intact teams and group contexts, it has become required reading on the MSc in Coaching and Behavioural Change at Henley Business School and on the Roffey Park Post-Graduate Coaching Certificate and is held in over 40 international university libraries.

It is on the recommended reading list of The i-coach Academy and on the The ICF Virtual bookstore as well as being a popular read in a number of coach book clubs in Europe, the US and worldwide. Its publication has led to invitations from around the world where John and the team share the stance, the principles and the practical application that make this approach so distinctive.

“John is a gifted and insightful communicator. He artfully brings this seemingly mysterious yet hugely transformative field to life. Prepare to be inspired!”

Liz Hall, editor of Coaching at Work.

“An insightful practical stepping-stone for coaches wanting to embrace a systemic approach in their practice. I do not think it is possible to be truly effective as a coach without supporting the client to become more aware of the systems in which they belong.”

David Clutterbuck, co-founder of the European Mentoring and Coaching Council

“His lucid explanations built on his depth of experience are in my view essential reading for coaches”

Alison Hardingham, Executive coach and author
