Recommendations
for Peer Groups

Self-image

The regional peer groups offer the members of the forum and all interested parties in-depth information and support in their work with system constellations in organizations and work contexts. With the following descriptions, infosyon would like to give recommendations that can serve as orientation for the leaders of the peer groups.

Purpose
  • Practice leading constellations

  • Supervision / Intervision – learning through reflection

  • Procedures and application in organizations and work contexts

  • Promotion of method diversity and exchange of methods from different constellation schools

  • Exchange of possible applications in management and organizational context

  • Exchange about linking the constellation method with other consulting or management tools

  • If necessary, invite customers/clients and/or guest speakers to specific topics

Content
  • Topics and questions from organizations and work contexts

  • Theory of system constellations and complementary methods in organizations and work context

Target group
  • Active users of system constellations who want to continue their education  .

  • People who have started further training in system constellations in organizations and work contexts and would like to actively set them up.

  • First and foremost, the peer groups for members of infosyon e. V. and those interested in becoming a member. The responsible leaders on site determine the specific conditions of participation.

  • infosyon recommends that there are different participation fees for infosyon members and non-members.

Framework conditions and working principles

Ideally, a meeting focuses on a topic that is being prepared. The working atmosphere is serious and trusting. Concerns are treated with absolute confidentiality and are not passed on to outsiders. The possibility of documenting constellations for one's own training or research purposes should be given. It is up to self-organization. infosyon e. V. recommends the following communication principles within the group:
 

  • Listen

  • speak from the heart

  • Constructive feedback

  • suspend assumptions

  • respect for the other

  • Reflection rounds after constellations

  • Address conflicts openly and create space for processing

  • Introduce change requests with concrete solution proposals

  • Take responsibility for your own well-being

  • New participants have the opportunity to introduce themselves and thus contribute their motivation and expectations to the group

Moderation and organization (HOST)

The peer groups are organized and moderated by one or two leaders, who are themselves members of infosyon, for a fixed period of time. The leaders are solely responsible for the design of the peer groups  , both for the content and the implementation. infosyon e. V. accepts no responsibility or liability. infosyon e. V. recommends to the peer group leaders:

 

  • Elaboration of the topics also by the participants

  • Organize thoughtful growth of the group

  • Information flow via e-mail to all participants

  • Clear structuring of the process and courageous moderation

  • Summary reflection after each meeting

  • Scheduling of appointments in consultation with the group

  • If necessary, report at conferences and general meetings about the work and participation in national meetings of the moderators

  • Support for new members (sponsorship principle)
