Jan Jacob Stam

I am Jan Jacob Stam. Being the founder of the Bert Hellinger Instituut the Netherlands I am more than grateful and excited about the fact that I found a field to work in that is both fascinating and fostering and that might be of great value for society.

At the institute I am the trainer of various workshops and training programs. At the moment I am gaining most of my important new insights from working with organisations and social issues. Currently I am working in more than thirty countries, my courses are either in Dutch or English.

As a former biologist I love living systems. I observe them without judgment and without aiming to improve them. I have been a teacher for over ten years at high schools, I have been a manager at a telecom company and I have been a partner in a consultancy firm. It feels like everything merged into my current job as a systemic constellator. The passion of exploring…

I still feel that excitement which I used to feel when I was a little boy playing on the beach – discovering beautiful shells from the giant ocean of knowledge.
