Constellation for Success & Creativity

The familial influences that we carry as individuals in many ways set the tone for our success in our creative and business life. If we have unresolved familial entanglements we carry these forward and perpetuate them within the hierarchy of our chosen workplace. This has an effect on the success we achieve in our chosen creative and business fields.

The dynamics of a working team are influenced by the collective history of the team members as well as the order structure and hierarchy within the team itself. The ability of a team to achieve success and to work creatively as a unit can be limited by many subtle factors including loyalty to a previous team or loyalty to a previous leader of a team or project.

 

Looking at the patterns affecting a group or team through constellation work is beneficial if you wish to understand the dynamics at play within the project and any limits the team are experiencing to the success they desire, for example:

  • If there is a high turnover of team members who lack "passion" and wish to make a change
  • If the team only achieves limited success
  • If the team experiences difficulty in expressing its creative potential
  • if there is betrayal or bad feeling in the workplace (this can be in the present or with previous group members)
  • If you consistently work with others who go on to great success whilst you are left standing still

By looking at the dynamics at play we can understand and bring order to our business and work allowing creativity and success to flow. Constellation work can be undertaken in a group allowing the patterns at play within the workplace to be revealed and subsequently reordered allowing the team to move forward together as a cohesive group towards success.

When doing the constellation in a group setting  representatives will be chosen from the group for each of the group projects/aims/ aspects of work to explore the creative dynamics or alternatively individuals can be placed to represent the hierarchy of the group itself to explore the group dynamics.  The representatives are then placed in position to one another as a spatial representation of their emotional connection. The representatives are then asked to take note of how they are feeling emotionally, physically and how they respond to the other representatives. The leader then moves the representatives, with continual feedback from them, searching for where the tension is held and where the point of resolution is.
