Depending on the type and size of the assignment, Pauline works with a selected international group of experienced coaches and consultants, all trained in the systems psychodynamic way of working with individuals and teams.

  • Executive coaching & Leadership development

    In addition to their knowledge and competences, people bring their own mindset and emotions into the organisation. Effective leadership requires the capacity to combine intuitive and emotional insights with strategic plans and to engage with complexity

    Organisations are confronted with increased complexity which demands leadership adaptive to change. Themes like identity, societal relevance, business ethics, climate change, diversity & inclusion, new technology, next generation management are often leading. Furthermore the executive coaching of senior women leaders across industries has become an increasing part of our work. Pauline offers coaching for executives aiming to further enhance their leadership.

    In addition to the coaching of senior executives, Pauline has built extensive experience in the coaching of professionals having been identified as the future leaders in organisations. This is offered both indidividually as well as through tailor made leadership programmes. One of the aims is to contribute to the mutual understanding, acknowledgement of differences between different generations, cultures and dynamics in organisations. Talent coaching helps the client understand how these factors could enhance each other to stimulate change and innovation.

  • Supervision

    Group supervision - We lead peer supervision groups in organisations as a powerful intervention for learning from and with other collegeaus in organisations. The aim is to provide an interactive reflective learning space through group dialogue and to offer (thinking) space for each participants’ individual experience in role in the organisation. It has proven to lead to better crossdepartemental collaboration, awareness and understanding of group and organisational dynamics, an extended internal network and new inititiatives. The demand for this design has substantially increased based upon the achieved innovative results in organisations and leadership programmes. It anticipates the growing complexity and challenges in organisations and society. 

    Coaching supervision - In order to assure quality of executive coaches and consultants, supervision is essential, especially in today’s context where accreditation is relevant. Pauline is an experienced supervisor for coaches who wish to further develop their practice and reflect on current coaching and consulting clients.

Central to the approach of DevelopmentinDepth is the ability to coach at the intersection of organisational culture, values and goals. Subsequently we explore the more unconscious processes in the individual and teams within their organisations and the wider system. This provides valuable insights and leads to a better understanding of what might be going on. It enables leaders and professionals to use this as a source for change and development.

The client gains deeper understanding of their organisation as a system, and an enhanced capacity for using the full range of their experience as a resource for understanding their own and others’ behaviour.

The Systems Psychodynamic Approach

The approach to the work utilises a systems psychodynamic lens. Focusing upon the emotional and relational dimension of work roles, it helps individuals, teams and organisations navigate change. Creating new perspectives through a deepened understanding of the work role and organisational dynamics. Clients often refer to this distinctive added value of the coaching as part of their improved personal leadership.

Person, Role, Organisation

These three factors are interrelated. The focus here is the client’s organisational role, role being where person and organisation intersect. The question of the individual can never be disconnected from the organisational system or systems they are part of. After all, our personal experience is influenced by who we are, by the roles we take or get designated, by the organisation and its environment.
