About the Community
We are a welcoming group of people with great enthusiasm for coaching from a systemic perspective. We try not to get too evangelical about it, but we do think the approach is pretty special!
Maybe you’ve completed the ORSC curriculum but don’t yet feel confident with your skills. Perhaps you want to try something out before doing it ‘for real’ with a client. Or you’re curious about what ORSC might offer you, and want to find out more before you sign up for the training programme.
Whatever your interest, the ORSC UK Community is here for you.
What we stand for
A vibrant, positive and supportive community in the UK that enables ORSC practitioners to flourish as they do their world work.
Enabling system workers to master the ORSC approach in coaching for right relationship.
How we organise
Evening meetings in London
Every month, two presenters with varying degrees of experience of ORSC, co-create a session around one or more ORSC tools, and present it to an audience of 25 or so interested people. It’s a safe space in which the presenters can experiment and take risks, knowing that the audience is supportive, engaged and willing to share experiences.
We learn. We explore. We try new things. And we laugh a lot along the way.
— Carole Adams (Co-presenter)
Virtual ORSC (VORSC)
For many people getting to London for an evening event is just not practical. So to spread the reach of the community and provide opportunities to practise that don’t involve travelling, VORSC was born. But it’s about more than convenience. We want to encourage ORSC practitioners to develop virtual ORSC skills and to be inspired to use them to enhance their coaching offer.
Every two months, two presenters/facilitators and up to 14 participants meet for a two-hour Zoom session. For the presenters, it’s an opportunity to be creative and experimental in using ORSC tools with a virtual group. And for the participants, it’s a chance not only to learn more about ORSC tools, but also to see how they can work virtually and to experience what it’s like to be a ‘client’ online.
Special Interest Groups (SIGs)
Special Interest Groups have emerged in response to people wanting to be more skilled in using a particular process, or to explore how to promote ORSC in a particular context. Their events happen every 2-3 months and are open to anyone in the community with a minimum of two days of ORSC training. Currently, the SIGs are:
— Systemic Constellations
— Deep Democracy
— ORSC in the education sector
Behind all this activity, a Steering Group meets monthly to review recent events and to plan and co-ordinate future meetings and activities.
How to become part of the Community
We want to meet you! Will you join us?
Our closed Facebook group is where ORSC enthusiasts reflect on Community events, request help, publicise activities that support mastery of ORSC, and share their experiences. Just navigate to the ORSC UK Facebook page and ask to join.
Alternatively, send a quick email to one of the Steering Group and ask to be added to the ORSC UK Community mailing list. We’ll keep in touch with you about what’s happening with the community and you’ll receive invitations to events.
Whether you are already a seasoned ORSC-er or you don’t yet know what it’s all about, you will receive a very warm welcome at any of our events.
