After having tried to clarify the differences between counseling, psychotherapy and coaching, the author reflects on the working actions organized by systemic thinking. She suggests the psychological actions needed in order to implement the work of single professionals, to enhance the co-vision with colleagues and create a dialogical collaborative setting with the people one works with. Some ideas on how to intervene in different setting are proposed, even if briefly.
Keywords: Contexts, systemic operations, systemic assumptions, analysis of the quest, networking, questioning the mandate.
