Process Work and Organizational Excellence:
Change and Transformation
Exploring Organizational and Systemic Change

With Dr Stephen Schuitevoerder
25th to 28th March, 2010


We are excited to announce that Dr Stephen Schuitevoerder, a well known international facilitator and trainer will be continuing his series of trainings in Process Work in Japan. This workshop explores Process Work applications to organizational development with a focus on systemic, social and group change processes.

Working with change is extremely complex. Change can be attractive and relieving, but it can also create uncertainty and insecurity. The impact of change has a ripple effect, spreading out from those who are the central focus of the change process, to others close to the change process and further to the whole organizational or social system itself, and beyond to stakeholder groups and the larger community. The impact of change can be profound. This makes the effective management of the change process very important, whether it is a small personal change, or a large systemic change.

Because of the dynamic and challenging impact of change, most individuals and systems tend to defer change, until it becomes essential. When change does arrive, it often arrives with the force needed to overcome this initial inertia. Initiating change is just the beginning of the process. The actual implementation of change needs to be skillful, creating new structural changes while caring for the personal impact on individuals as well as the larger system. Change is a remarkable and powerful process that has the potential for tremendous growth and transformation of individuals, groups, organizations and cultures.

This seminar: In this seminar we will focus on the interpersonal aspects of organizational and system change process using the models of Process Work. Focusing on individual, relationship and group change structures, we will explore the depth of the change process, how we might facilitate it effectively, how we can work with difficult and challenging moments in change, and how we might use the change process for a deepening enrichment of ourselves and others around us. We will explore a multi faceted approach to working with change, including small and large group processes, relationship and conflict work and individual exploration.

This four day workshop will be experiential and is designed to give maximum experiential learning to participants. It will provide training and skill development for those working with the change management process with individuals, organizations and systems and will be suitable for consultants, coaches and human resource professionals.

What we will cover:

  • Process Work theory and application.
  • A focus on structural analysis, edges and secondary processes.
  • An intensive focus on group facilitation training, including roles and ghost roles, marginalization, edges and hot spots.
  • Rank and work on the effective use of power.
  • Case presentations.
  • Eldership and wisdom in the change process.


Learning Outcomes:

Participants will be provided with:

  • An immersion in Process Work and WorldWork training.
  • A group facilitation skills toolkit.
  • Skills in working with challenging moments in organizational and systems change.
  • Implementing whole system changes and working with organizations towards effective change.
  • Further focus on wisdom and the cultivation of eldership.


More on Process work: Process Work is a cross-disciplinary approach to support individual and collective change. It was developed in the 1970s and 1980s in Zurich, Switzerland by Dr. Arnold Mindell, a Jungian analyst. Process Work, also known as Process-Oriented Psychology, offers new ways of working with areas of life that are experienced as problematic or painful. Physical symptoms, relationship problems, group conflicts and social tensions, when approached with curiosity and respect, can lead to new information that is vital for personal and collective growth.

With its roots in Jungian psychology and physics, Process Work believes that the solution to problems is often contained within the disturbances themselves. Process Work provides a practical framework through which individuals, couples, families, groups and organizations can connect with greater effectiveness and creativity. Process Work adopts a sense of deep democracy whereby each aspect of ourselves is seen to be meaningful and important and offers valuable information for us when explored and unfolded.  Similarly within an organization, each member holds important and vital contribution to the group's well-being and effectiveness.
