Book 'Healing Organizations'

Restore the selfhealing ability of your organization

Organizations can get hurt by neglect and therefore get ill and weakened. In my book you'll discover how healing leaders can see and break through persistent patterns and powers.

Organizations can be rebalanced and healed with systemic intelligence and working with sacred geometry. It gives great insights in dark energies and destructive patterns and what remedies will be appropriate to restore the immune system and resilience of the whole of the organization. This book teaches Healing Leaders how to read and create space for the healing process of the whole.

Podcast: 'A lot of leaders are system blind'

"Most leaders don't recognize and acknowledge their own trauma's. They keep on trying to improve their organization with more protocols, rules, lean processes or performance indicators". Marieke van Voorn agrees with this statement in this episode of the Boekenpraktijk podcast of ' Managementboek'. Marieke wrote a book about to cure ill and week organizations ‘Healing Organizations’.

Interview AOG School of Management Bookclub

Back in 2008, Marieke van Voorn took the Change Management course at AOG School of Management. Now this systemic organizational consultant and organizational sociologist has written an intriguing book in which she uses medical metaphors to show how organizations can tap into their self-healing capacity. We sat down with Marieke to discuss her book and her drive for healing leadership.

Companies can get sick and become significantly weakened as a result. In this book you will discover how to prevent and cure pathogenic patterns. Organizations are like living organisms that become bogged down when afflicted with acute or chronic ailments. This book provides an overview of various corporate disease patterns and their remedies.

Interview Re-story: 'Healing ill organizations needs holistic and decisive leadership'

For Re-story, an online platform for impact journalism, Marieke, who is also a collaborator with Re-story, creates a series on such leaders, whom she calls shining examples, because they can inspire other leaders.

In this interview, she talks about getting sick and healing organizations: "People and organizations revitalize when they reunite with their essence and original intentions. That strengthens the organization's immune system and its resilience."

Marieke succeeds in further paving the way for people who really want to get to work with organizations. Taking into account the societal challenges that exist and that some "leaders" turn a blind eye to. What is encouraging about Marieke's book is that she sought out leaders - whom she rightly calls healing leaders - who are already walking this path. As a result, impeding arguments like "too idealistic, naive, won't work anyway, ..." melt away like snow in the sun. And perhaps therein lies the greatest satisfaction for an author who dares to pioneer. Thanks for your courage, Marieke. Thanks for putting the spotlight on people who make a difference in the field and adding the necessary concepts and reflections.

"With this book, Marieke brings a holistic insight into organizations, nourished by her own experiences in health care in particular. Her deep connection to 'source' shows in her work and outlook. Her keen observations force you to ask yourself again the questions about what you see and what you have missed in looking at an organization. You can sense between the lines how her broad and deep self-development in other, adding fields such as shamanism, African and Egyptian antiquity and influences from the East enriches and influences her work. This book will show you layers that you may not have thought about before and thus offers a wonderful addition to the organizational systemic field of work."

Organizations can be thought of as 'beings' with needs and complex, sometimes sick behavior. It is rare to find a book that makes the connection between the resilience of an organization, its genesis and leadership. With the Resilience Model you learn to recognize and acknowledge traumas, shadows and entanglements in organizations in interaction with your own biography as a leader. Because in order to walk the path of healing, self-regulation, systems thinking and systemic skills form the bedrock. Thus, as a 'healer' you can begin to contribute to healthy, resilient organizations in which intuition and self-reflection are given space. Required reading for every change agent and entrepreneur because it effortlessly connects the conscious and unconscious aspects of the personal and the collective.
