Internal Family Systems at Work
Zoom | 20th April
Internal Family Systems (IFS) is one of the fastest-growing therapy and coaching modalities, helping us to understand our inner “family” of sub-personalities and to access the confidence, compassion, and creativity of our highest Self. This session will introduce you to powerful practices to apply IFS to foster a thriving organisational culture. Join us to learn how awareness of your inner and interpersonal parts and polarisations can improve individual and collective effectiveness and wellbeing.
You don’t need previous understanding of IFS, but if you are already familiar with IFS this 2hour introductory session will give you a deeper understanding of how to apply it in the work context. A useful course for leaders and facilitators to guide and support their teams, as well as for anyone to better understand and navigate interpersonal team dynamics.

What people say about us
"The training was the perfect way to equip our team with tools to overcome challenges of organizing in a decentralised and value-driven way. Rich and Nati guided the journey with commitment and positivity at every step and we supported us with their vast experience and knowledge. The atmosphere of safety and trust they created was inspiring and set the tone for our follow-up plans."
Forum for the Future
“Participating in The Hum's course brought home and demystified questions of what new forms of governance and organising for change can look and feel like. Their way of grounding theory into practice through simple and clear language, applied learning opportunities and sharing examples from the field encouraged me to try new things out in my own organisational context."
"I have come away from the course understanding that deciding to have a flat structure was just the first step for us. There is a lot of work to be done to build the structures and processes that we need to thrive. The Hum has given us the tools and the inspiration to help us on this journey. I feel much more confident about trying new ways of organising."
