INTRODUCING NIODA’S 2017 GROUP RELATIONS CONFERENCE
An Invitation to Explore
The National Institute of Organisation Dynamics Australia (NIODA) is a not for profit institute with the primary purpose of delivering education for those specifically interested in understanding, applying and developing systems psychodynamic approaches to the improvement of work organisations. This Group Relations Conference (GRC) is sponsored by NIODA. It is offered as part of the Master of Management – Organisation Dynamics and is open to the public.
The conference is created as a temporary learning organisation. It offers members and staff a unique opportunity to enquire deeply, to learn from experience and to transform habitual ways of making sense of group dynamics and organisational life. As one past member described it, ‘the GRC experience is like clearing several layers of cobwebs from in front of my eyes; to make visible so much that can seem obscure and mysterious in the experience of taking up a role, leading and following in organisations. I now have so many more insights and resources to draw upon in how I go forward as a leader’.
This GRC is designed in the Tavistock tradition and is essentially an invitation to examine your experiences of relatedness (both conscious and unconscious) in organisations: between yourself and your role; between you and your co-workers; as between groups within the organisation; within the organisation as a whole and between the organisation and the wider community and global context in which it exists and operates.
Monday 20th – Friday 24th November 2017
