Statements of all Nominees
Together with my wife Lynn I have loved the depth and personal relevance of systemic constellations since attending my first workshop in January 2004. Together we went on to train in family constellations at the Hellinger Institute of Britain (now CSC) and attended the Bernried International Intensive for several years. With 4 adult children, 4 children-in-law and 8 grand-children, family constellations have deeply guided the flow of family life. I also trained in advanced organisational constellations at the Dutch Hellinger Instituut just before retiring from my work as an IT analyst in a large well-regarded UK retail Partnership which demonstrated the health of an organisation which follows systemic principles.
Since 2007 Lynn and I have also been part of a team running regular constellation workshops: www.constellationworkshops.co.uk. Participants come from many different nationalities, cultures and ethnic backgrounds. While Lynn has developed her work as a systemic practitioner with individual clients and training groups I have been drawn to the vision of ISCA since attending the Zagreb gathering in 2016.
I’ve served for the last 2 years as vice-chair and it now feels time for me to stand as chair for the next term of the ISCA board. Max has done a wonderful job at the helm for the last 4 years and I respect his decision not to stand again. To my mind he has become an elder statesman for ISCA.
The task of chair is a great challenge but also feels an immense privilege. There is much work to do and we will need members of the board who are willing to put in time and energy to serve the collective in a spirit of joy and humility. I am confident that those who have nominated themselves have fully appreciated what the work involves and it will be a pleasure for me to work with those elected.
Of course ISCA also needs members who can inspire us and contribute to our vision without necessarily being on the board. We really need you as well!

Under the guidance of the actual board, ISCA has developed wonderfully within the last years to become strong and ready for its next steps into the future. To accompany these steps actively, I would be honored to stand for the position of vice chair fro the next ISCA Board to support the development and the process especially in the fields of:
- ISCA global library of knowledge
- certification of ISCA members and their offer in trainings etc
- development of the regional chapters
- increasing membership figures
To give the members an idea of my personal visions for ISCA, I published “my vision for ISCA” at the Facebook group for members.
I dived into the field of constellations in the late 1990s and stayed ever since. I am highly active in national and international constellation networks and love the global closeness in variety. Today, I offer bilingual trainings in system and in organization constellation in Germany and in the Ukraine
I was born in Jan. 1959. After a study of Fine Arts at Düsseldorf Academy, I worked as a painter for 15 years. In 1995, I started consulting in the field of branding and organisational development. In diving deeper into the world of economics and consulting, I passed a study of International Management at Hagen University and in addition several trainings in systemic consulting methods, incl. systemic constellation. During that time I developped my own ideas and published several books on systemic development and constellation work. I am the founder of FELD INSTITUT (field institute) in Cologne, where we offer consulting and training for systemic development. I am mother of a grown up son and live with my partner in the heart of Cologne. I’d be grateful for your trust and your voice.

I am Louis Hillebrand, born in the Netherlands in 1956, been married for 15 years, divorced and since 2007 living with Fawzia in Belgium.
Next to my job as a software-developer, Fawzia and I are running monthly constellation workshops for over 12 years. I’m fascinated by the work, try to keep up with all the new developments, loving different styles and facilitators and creating our own style by incorporating the styles that match with our way of living and facilitating. As constellation work is our mutual passion it has become an integral part of our life.
A big part of our learning next to the many trainings and workshops I followed is done by participating in the international intensive in Bernried/Kochel for the last 10 years. Learning from the faculty and the participants and my interest in the wider perspective of the work acknowledged my way of viewing the work as truly universal. My favourite way of working is to look at the greater whole without losing sight of the details.
Within my work as a developer and later as facilitator I’ve always had privacy and confidentiality on top of my list, respecting my sources and origin, and searching for the real need behind a question without judging the questioner. A way of being that became clear after I came in contact with the constellation work in 1999.
I always wanted to find a way to bring the people who do this work together, which is one of reasons why we also invite experienced guest facilitators to Belgium. Being a member of ISCA for almost 10 years and talking to Paul Stoney during our international intervision-group I feel it’s a good moment to make my experience and knowledge available to the board of ISCA.
The objective for my contribution to the board is to help us all facilitate ‘what’s emerging’ while keeping the goal of ISCA in mind. I want to make ISCA as interesting as possible for all facilitators worldwide. I believe this can be done without competition.

It would be my great honor and privilege should you decide to consider my own nomination for the position of board member of the International Systemic Constellations Association (ISCA) responsible for communications.
There are three reasons that stimulate me to apply for this role.
First, it is my background. I am a former business journalist turned strategic communications consultant and people developer in the field of communication skills, emotional and systemic intelligence. My professional background is solid and still very much active. Thus it continues to support my suggestions of strategic approaches in communications for us as an organization and for our colleagues and members who might welcome ideas, support and mentoring in their own communications.
Second, it is my experience. I am currently an active member of the board of the Czech Association of Systemic Constellations. In this position I have learnt a great deal about the needs of systemic facilitators at the local / national level. I would be happy to bring this experience forward and to put it to the service of our colleagues worldwide.
Third, it is my passion. For me communications is the visible manifestation of the world inside us that we continue to explore (including through systemic constellations), to develop and to put to the service of others. We need more truth, personal and systemic, in our lives, companies and communities and I believe that communications can help bring it to the surface.
Last but not least, I dream of the possibility of meeting you all more regularly. As I live in Prague, it is my dream to bring Prague to the worldwide map of systemic constellations as a heartfelt place where the local can meet the global, where we can all gather, exchange, be together and relax into our complexities. It is my strong belief that, when we come together with positive intentions, miracles happen for ourselves and for those whom we seek to serves.
For all these reasons I submit my nomination for your consideration and I am looking forward to the outcome of our elections in spring 2019.
