ORSC™ Organization and Relationship Systems Coaching

What is ORSC?

ORSC stands for Organization and Relationship Systems Coaching. ORSC is an integrated and robust coaching model based on Relationship Systems Intelligence™. Beyond Emotional Intelligence (relationship with oneself) and Social Intelligence (relationship with other) is the realm of Relationship Systems Intelligence where one’s focus shifts to the relationship with the group, team or system. This approach creates sustainable and resilient teams and families.

How does ORSC work with other coaching and training methodologies?

The analogy that we like to use is that ORSC is an operating system upon which other applications, mental models and approaches can be reinterpreted.
Once our students make the paradigm shift from engaging individuals to the entire group (what we call The Third Entity™), a whole new world of opportunities emerge. Many students report great satisfaction because what they’ve already learned and used in their work is even more effective when coupled with ORSC principles.

What is the foundation for ORSC?

ORSC is based on Systems Theory, Process Work, Family Systems Therapy, Alternative Dispute Resolution, Quantum Physics, Co-Active Coaching™, and Taoism. At its core is the study of Relationship Systems Intelligence.

What is the Third Entity™?

Jungian scholars might call it a collective consciousness, business consultants refer to corporate culture and therapists address family system dynamics. The Third Entity is that which lives outside the individuals in a particular relationship system whether a work team, family, or couple. Still confused? John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr were individuals. The Beatles is their Third Entity™.

Most of my clients are individuals. How does “relationship systems coaching” impact one-on-one coaching?

Human beings are complex, and a single person is a system unto herself, with many relationships that impact her life.

Her relationship to money, to food, to work, to family, to friends, to herself. Relationship systems coaching focuses on the totality of your client, a more effective approach that encompasses all her facets, interdependencies, and dichotomies.
