Foundation of ORSC™


The Intelligence module is the first course of the ORSC™ Intermediate. The course provides a robust toolkit for increasing emotional resilience in the the face of change. Change is inevitable, constant, and necessary, and the ability to navigate change is a hallmark of systemic health.

In this course, you will explore and map the role emotions play in human relationship systems and learn how to help others establish a “locus of control.” This paradigm shift will enable them to embrace the idea that change is a normal phenomenon–the key to systemic evolution.

This course provides a robust toolkit for increasing emotional resilience in the face of change. You’ll also learn a skill-set that supports clients in dealing with difficult circumstances with dignity and wisdom, moving from Emotional Intelligence and Social Intelligence to Relationship Systems Intelligence.

Learn the 7 keys to creating change:

By practicing the following skills in the Intelligence course, you will acquire greater fluidity and agility in your coaching approach, and be equipped to set the ground conditions for change.

  1. Internalize an entirely new model for coaching organizations, teams, couples and individuals based on Arnold Mindell’s Process Work.
  2. Access and integrate systems intelligence from multiple channels (visual, auditory, proprioceptive, kinesthetic, relational, environmental) in order to successfully manage change.
  3. Leverage change management theory to create the ground conditions for team and organizational resilience.
  4. Master coaching techniques for deepening and managing emotionally intense issues in both organizational and intimate relationships.
  5. Identify and diminish highly negative conflict styles and team toxins.
  6. Discover the power of Deep Democracy with, and for, your clients, which insists that all the voices of a system be heard and honored — even the unpopular ones, because only then will the system be ready for change.
  7. Increase positivity within business, non-profit and personal relationships through the application of appreciation loops and dream doors.

By the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • Develop a deeper understanding of team dynamics.
  • Facilitate intentional and accountable conversations.
  • Align different viewpoints to impact the collective whole.
  • Support your clients through change and development initiatives.
ORSC - Intermediate


The Geography module is the second course of the ORSC™ Intermediate. Geography gives a broad and practical approach to working with many of the functional structures of relationship systems. When we develop relationships —at work or in our personal lives— we create semi-permanent structures. This course explores how to recognize and nurture those structures.

You will explore key ORSC tools:

  1. Lands Work

Differences can create confusion, misunderstandings and barriers to growth when they are not embraced. “Why don’t you do things my way?” “Why don’t you value what I value?” “Why don’t you approach problems the way I do?” “Why can’t you be more like me?”

If you’ve ever worked with a client who is “stuck,” in this kind of thinking, you’ll appreciate the simple and elegant tools this course provides for moving beyond that place. Lands Work allows participants to develop an awareness of the diversity and differences which people add to a system and proactively create from these differences, while flexing their empathic abilities.

  1. Roles

Often people become identified with the job they are doing, whether that job be a physical task they are performing (an “outer role” like a CEO or Teacher) or an emotional job for which they feel responsible (an “inner role” like being the peacemaker, or the one who speaks up about things). This course examines the distinction between the person and those many roles that can be occupied consciously, intentionally and skillfully.

De-personalizing the roles that exist in a system opens up new possibilities for how those roles interact. When issues arise for your clients, you’ll be equipped to help them look at a role that needs to be occupied differently, and move beyond blame, guilt and personal failure.

By the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the function of relationship structures, (for example, outer and inner roles) for providing stability to relationship systems of all kinds.
  • Recognize the need for periodic change in these structures in order to avoid “role nausea” and role rigidity over time.
  • Have a concrete model and tools for working with diversity issues in relationships (My Land, Your Land, Our Land). You will have practiced these techniques in personal and organizational scenarios.
  • Be able to assess the role of internal aspects of selves (secret selves) in relationship and have a tool for coaching them.
  • Be aware of the impact of cultural biases on relationship systems and have tools for coaching that impact. You will practice these tools through personal and organizational scenarios.
  • Have tools for creating greater empathy around individual and organizational differences, and be able to creatively harness those differences.
  • Have the opportunity to explore professional practices relevant to Relationship Systems coaching (building the niche, networking, consultation, practice building, etc.).
ORSC - Intermediate


The Path module is the third course of the ORSC™ Intermediate. It focuses on partnerships as a creative force, while exploring how to create a shared vision and a strategic plan for achieving that vision.

Relationships are inherently generative, they produce something unique the moment two or more people get together. What is created may be feelings or stories or plans or ideas. It could be something as mundane as a task list or as profound as a baby.

In this course you will focus on partnerships as a creative force, and examine concepts like the Path of Relationship, Quantum Physics and Dreams.

You will explore key ORSC tools:

  1. The three levels of reality

Relationships, personal and professional, are paths to growth. In order to maximize the power and potential of relationships, one must understand the different levels of reality in which relationship dwells, and then become more fluid at moving among those levels. In this course, you will learn how to help your clients choose what they create.

  1. Conflict management.

The Path Course also provides tools for working with conflict, which is crucial anytime you’re dealing with relationships. Since most conflicts arise when people don’t share a vision or the same “consensus reality,” the first step to mitigating conflict is to be aware of those differences. During this three-day course, you’ll have the opportunity to practice several tools that will turn conflict into a powerful engine for growth.

  1. Myths

Myths are powerful and archetypal narratives that shape our reality. As relationship systems evolve, inevitably new myths take shape, some of which can create an identity crisis as the individuals wtihin the system continue to act from the “originial myth,” when in fact, they already occupy a new one. In Path you’ll explore how to locate a “myth crisis” and then work with your client to manifest the new myth.

By the end of the course, you will:

  • Understand the theory and application of the Three Levels of Reality and how they are critical to the healthy functioning of relationship systems.
  • Be able to uncover and coach the conscious and unconscious fears that impact relationship behaviors (High/Low Dream).
  • Know the theory for identifying the deep meaning of each relationship system and have the tools to assist clients in accessing it (Relationship Myth).
  • Understand the function of a relationship myth as a governing structure for relationships of all kinds and the need for myth change over time.
  • Have tools for working with myth and myth change and have a chance to practice those tools with personal and organizational vignettes.
  • Have a tool for creating conscious and intentional emotional fields to support specific coaching situations (MetaSkills™ Wheel).
  • Possess a set of large-group tools for bringing an organizational vision down into practical reality (Bringing Down the Vision).
  • Know at least three techniques for exploring the transpersonal aspects of relationship systems; (Myths, MetaSkills™, and Partner as Aspect of the Divine Dreammaker).
ORSC - Intermediate

Systems integration

Systems Integration is the final course in the ORSC™ curriculum. This advanced course provides a learning space where you can practice the skills acquired in all previous courses. This course integrates the dimensions of Intelligence, Geography, and Path through hands-on practice, group supervision, a deepened understanding of the underpinning of the model and lots of practice.

You will explore key ORSC tools:

  1. World Work Metaskills

As participants move from coaching individuals and pairs to groups and organizations, they are embarking on a path to World Work, impacting the consciousness of the world through their actions. This transition requires a new set of MetaSkills to which participants will be introduced in this course. They include: Non-attachment, Energetic Awareness, Disturbance as Ally, Meta View, Crazy Wisdom, Service and Deep Democracy.

World Work is a state of being as well as doing. Working with groups can be challenging, requiring coaches and consultants to manage their own feelings, be aware of individual interactions and monitor emotional fields, all while maintaining awareness of the entire system. Your ability to “hold it all” will improve if you can maintain a stance in the midst of the storm.

  1. Group or Team Coaching

Group or team coaching occurs when a coach or consultant engages with more than two people. The skills and tools used in the Deep Democracy process transfer perfectly to group or team coaching. The stages of the Deep Democracy process, which you’ll learn in Systems Integration, include: Filtering/Sorting, Gaining Consensus, Identifying Roles and Ghost Roles, Locating Edges and Hot Spots, Escalation and De-escalation, and finally finding Temporary Resolution.

By the end of the course, you will have:

  • Practiced individual tools, combine skillsets to meet a variety of scenarios, and master MetaSkills.
  • Deepened your understanding of the relationship dimensions of Relationship Intelligence, Geography and Path, and their different contributions to ORSC.
  • Practiced integrating the skills and tools of Intelligence, Geography and Path so that these can be utilized fluidly and flexibly as the situation demands.
  • Increased your confidence as an ORSC coach, consultant, therapist or counsellor.
  • Added new practical tools and skills to your coaching toolkit.
  • Received additional training in group and team coaching.
  • Created community and had fun!

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™ – or the Relationship System Itself), a whole new world of opportunities emerges. 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.
