The main idea of the systemic theory is that each part of the system (a member of the group) with its unique function within the system significantly contributes to the maintenance of the stability and equilibrium of the system as a whole. In the systemic approach an individual is not treated as a separate entity but rather as an inseparable part of the broader system (family, society, culture, etc.). Systemic coaching is used in different settings, e.g. individuals, teams and groups.
In an organisational setting, systemic coaching can help address dysfunctional teams, organizational conflict, and difficult behaviours in the workplace. The goal of systemic coaching is to achieve the overall wellbeing and health of the system.
