Unlocking systemic wisdom

You sense that something is off in your organisation or team, but can’t find the words to describe it. So you carry on and ignore the signals: signals from your surroundings or your body’s signals. That’s a shame, because there is so much more to be gained from the systemic wisdom within you.

about the book

Unlocking Systemic Wisdom’ is a down-to-earth, practical handbook, in which years of experience is translated into an easy-to-use guide for using your systemic wisdom in the workplace. 

You will read which three life-giving forces are at work in the undercurrent of organisations and teams, which will ‘subtitle’ what you already sensed but could not describe until now. The many recognisable and everyday examples make this book easy to read.


Practical handbook

Unlocking systemic wisdom is a down-to-earth, practical handbook in which years of experience is translated into an easy-to-use guide for using your systemic wisdom in the workplace. You will read which three life-giving forces are at work in the undercurrent of organisations and teams, so that you better understand what you already sensed but couldn’t describe.

Taking signals seriously

By ‘switching on’ your own systemic wisdom, you can tap into a new source of information. You gain a deeper understanding, without having to work very hard for it. The exercises and assignments in this book help you become more sensitive to the signals that previously you might not have taken seriously. The many recognisable and everyday examples make this book easy to read.    The result: not working so hard!

By looking at situations from a systemic perspective you gain more insight into what is really going on in your team or organisation. By daring to trust and handle situations according to your gut feeling about ‘what feels right and what does not’, you create new options. This makes it easier to reach decisions. Now you will not have to work so hard, especially in situations that previously were complicated.

about the authors

Siets Bakker

As an organisation consultant, Siets Bakker (1973) has guided numerous executive boards and management teams through their change issues. She is a forerunner in the field of applied systemic work. Siets is trained to facilitate both family and organizational constellations, but is much more interested in finding practical ways to apply systemic knowledge to everyday life. 

Leanne Steeghs

Leanne Steeghs (1964) works as a systemic trainer and teamcoach for organisations and several educational institutes. Leanne is often booked for systemic introduction workshops, which stand out for their practical approach and clear ‘subtitling’ of the undercurrent. She brings people, teams and organisations in contact with their own systemic wisdom, in order to achieve great results with less effort.


This book is a very welcome addition to the systemic literature that already exists. It makes the knowledge from constellations directly applicable. Especially the examples from the authors own lives and the practical exercises make this a book suitable for anyone who wants to look in a fundamental way at issues in daily work. I have read it with great pleasure and will certainly apply the knowledge provided.

What a readable and practical book! Full of recognizable, appealing and honest examples. It has made me more aware of the systems I am part of and has given me tools to understand better what’s going on in the undercurrent in family and organisational systems.

It feels like I’ve discovered a well-kept secret; one that gives me a huge advantage in my work, my private life and to others that don’t know it yet.
