Systemic Interventions in Teams and Organization

We all wish that the interventions we do every day in teams bring results. From a systemic perspective (perspective of the system/the whole), an intervention is something that happens or something done after which a team or the people in the team act from a different inner place or perspective. Whether you’re a team leader, manager, business owner, or team coach, making interventions from the inside out requires you to truly connect with and love the team as it is. Even if it is not working well.

You now have the unique opportunity to learn using systemic interventions directly from Jan Jacob Stam and Dees van de Hoef. 


Jan Jacob is an organizational and team consultant, recognized internationally as a leader in systemic work. He has been passionate about systemic work with organizations since 1996 and has worked in more than 40 countries. Together with his colleague Dees they co-founded TeamConnect, bringing people and teams in contact with their full potential. Dees and Jan Jacob are not only complementary, but together they are more than the sum of the parts. Instead of just overcoming their differences, they use their differences. But that you have to experience yourself…

They focus on situations that you normally experience in teams. For example: Many times teams and organizations suffer from conflict and dysfunction without seeing the origin of the underlying dynamics. For example, there may be competitive dynamics among employees in an organization that are not obvious at first sight. Employees may compete for scarce resources, such as opportunities for promotion or recognition for work done, which can lead to tension and conflict. If only the symptoms of conflict, such as arguments and disagreements in the workplace, are addressed, but the root cause of competition between employees is not addressed, the conflict is likely to persist and worsen over time. Systemic interventions can help teams break out of unproductive patterns of behavior or thinking and thus unlock team potential.

Teams are like living beings with a will of their own and often a very good memory. Sometimes they move in exactly the opposite direction as the members of the team. Who should we address then? The members of the team or the whole thing called ‘team’? By the way, for ‘team’ you can also read ‘organization’, ‘department’, ‘startup’, ‘association’, or ‘family business’.

What will we do?

In these three days, you will learn what essentially systemic interventions are, and how to create the conditions that they can land.

In addition to the theoretical framework of the systemic approach, you will also learn how to apply some tried-and-tested systemic interventions within your cases in teams.

You will explore the question from which place/stance you do the interventions and how this affects the outcome.

‘Orders of interventions’ will be explained, giving you a deeper sense of: ‘What needs to be done and what could be the first step?’ for the useful movement with your team.

You will be able to explore how your own patterns play into your work with the team, and how to use these patterns instead of being counterproductive.

You will gain new insights into your challenges and questions such as: What is the current state of the system? What do you need to unlock your potential? Is there enough sense of belonging in this team? Is everyone in their place? Are the tasks and priorities clear? Is there an exchange? Can the products or services be successful in the outside world? How many teams do you belong to? How do you relate to each of them? Do you have a place in the team and is this place recognized? What is your team’s position in the organization? Which system do you feel most connected to?

You will practice interventions in a way that will enable you to carry them out yourself afterward.

In short: there is a lot to learn here, from hands-on work to developing your capacity to support the team’s or organization´s potential.
