John Whittington – Facilitator & Author

John is the founder of Coaching Constellations and is lead facilitator on all programmes from ‘Fundamentals Part II through the ‘Walking in the Field’ Practitioner training and our ‘Path to Mastery’ programme. His book, ‘Systemic Coaching and Constellations’ was published in expanded 2nd Edition in 2016 and is available through multiple outlets.

Back in 2008 John started an informal learning circle in order to share the stance, principles and practices that underpin systemic coaching. Over time this grew into an accredited training and, in 2010, ‘Coaching Constellations’ was born. John now leads the facilitation team and many of the ‘by invitation’ international trainings. All trainings, together with workshops and professional practice and supervision days are listed on the diary page.

In 2011 John was invited to become a part of the visiting faculty at the Henley Business School – teaching systemic coaching and constellations to students on Henley’s MSc in Coaching and Behavioural change programme. This working relationship expanded and developed and from 2014 has included Henley’s MSc students in Johannesburg, South Africa.

In 2016 John began to write on specific subjects and system relationship dynamics which his clients and students ask about, on his website ‘Life Love Leadership’.  The site offers access to a growing number of articles about system dynamics in these three contexts.

Through his company Business Constellations John also facilitates regular constellation workshops designed to support leadership vitality and organisational health. These workshops offer leaders the opportunity to illuminate the hidden dynamics that sustain and limit flow in leadership, in teams and whole organisations. The workshops also offer coaches who have trained in systemic coaching an opportunity to take part, as representatives. Coaches can commission workshops and bring their clients to explore specific issues and broader challenges so that they benefit from this methodology and get fresh insights into personal, professional and organisational issues. This clarifying and resourcing process adds value to the coach/client working relationship and liberates fresh energy in the leader and their system.
