Opening the space, creating possibilities
Leadership and Management in Organisation Dynamics

Opening the space for groups and organisations to think differently and to go on thinking in the face of turbulence; exploring and creating possibilities

“The individual and group dynamics that create organisational problems are like a giant hairball.  Our task is to disentangle it and so make the newly freed threads a fresh resource for the organisation”
Dr Brigid Nossal

Master of Leadership and Management in Organisation Dynamics

There are more humane ways of being a manager / leader AND they happen to be more effective.  Gaining insight into the emotional life of an organisation is the most powerful data you have if you seek to be an effective leader.

  • analyse, understand and manage group dynamics in organisations
  • identify blockers to change due to structure, culture and/or technology
  • work with the emotional labour of leading complex systems in fast-changing environments
  • discover what is ‘below the surface’ in work situations
  • part-time weekly classes OR two, three or five day modules

This conference offers the opportunity for conference members to learn about the dynamics of identity, gender and authority in the workplace; and how these enhance or detract from an integrated community. As a working conference, members and staff engage in group activities and learn from their experiences, rather than passively listen to speeches and papers.

Innovative Approaches to Consulting that Meet your Organisation’s Unique Needs

Is the ‘tried & tested’ approach no longer working for you?  We offer new and creative ways to understand and deal with your complex challenges and difficult problems. The aim is to grow insight and impact positively on your organisation’s leadership, work culture, structure and processes.  We work with the conscious and pratical aspects of organisational life, and also consider the  ‘hidden’ influences on performance and the general ‘health’ of the organisation.


  At NIODA we are excited to have established an Alumni of Organisation Dynamics Association (AODA).  Our first student cohort graduated with a Master of Leadership and Management (Organisation Dynamics) in 2017 and the second cohort in 2018.  In AODA NIODA graduates join with those who have undertaken postgraduate study in organisation dynamics at Swinburne and RMIT universities; all who have attained a level of mastery in systems psychodynamic thinking for application in many and varied ways, in different workplaces and social contexts. AODA activities provide opportunity for extending thinking and enabling interconnection with like minded people in this field.
