Seven live interactive online sessions with

Dr Wendy Harding

 

Seven two-hour sessions

Two time options starting March 2022

NIODA is offering an exciting and valuable opportunity to explore online small group dynamics through participation in a small study group. Studying online small group dynamics provides an edge to the work we are all currently engaged in on virtual mediums. The study group method is that of the traditional Tavistock style study group method. In this, the participant group explore their own conscious and unconscious patterns of small group behaviour in the ‘here and now’ using group/system-level analysis. This design encourages in-depth ‘learning through experience’ as well as laying a theoretical foundation for understanding interpersonal group dynamics.

Through this experience, it is anticipated participants will increase their capacity to identify, analyse and manage online and onsite workgroup dynamics; to appreciate the emotional labour of work, and to enable constructive leader-follower relations.

The direct group experience is supplemented by critical discussion of selected theories and models of group dynamics.

Your learning will be supported with weekly readings.

Dr Wendy Harding will lead and manage the sessions, along with taking up the consultant role to the study group.

Wendy Harding, CEO NIODA

Dr Wendy Harding

Small Study Group Series

CEO & Director of Academic Programs NIODA, Australia

Wendy Harding has been actively involved in the field of organisation dynamics in Australia for 30 years. She has been an educator for 25 years, first at Swinburne University, then RMIT, and since 2014 at the National Institute of Organisation Dynamics Australia (NIODA). Wendy is currently the NIODA’s CEO and Director of Academic Programs. Wendy is also faculty in both the NIODA master’s degree and PhD.

Study group is a unique and powerful method for understanding the ways in which covert dynamics impact the way that groups and systems work towards tasks, or alternatively seek to avoid the task. Avoidance can occur as a result of the challenging experience of being in a group, the task itself and the contextual forces acting on the group, or all of the above together. Wendy has had decades of experience in introducing ideas about deeper group dynamics and their impacts on the group through the study group consultant role. It is a critical capacity of the study group consultant to co-create with the group safe enough conditions for in-depth learning to occur. Wendy brings her extensive knowledge and experience to this task. Participants of study groups are then able to translate their learning to a greater understanding of, and influence upon their own workplace group dynamics, both online and onsite. This learning is a significant professional edge for all leaders, managers and team members.

Wendy Harding, CEO NIODA

Dr Wendy Harding

Small Study Group Series

CEO & Director of Academic Programs NIODA, Australia

Dr Wendy Harding is a senior practitioner in the Australian and global organisation dynamics field. Dr Harding is the current CEO and Director of Academic Programs at NIODA, having over 30 years’ experience in teaching, consulting, coaching, supervision and research. Across these years Wendy has undertaken many coaching, supervision, consultancy and action research projects in a broad span of organisational settings from large government departments to a variety of corporate and not-for-profit organisations. Organisational consulting projects have focussed on team and whole of organisation development and structural and cultural change, using a range of intervention methods. Individual coaching and supervision have been undertaken with a culturally diverse range of people working at all levels in organisations from executive level to direct service delivery.

Wendy’s coaching/supervision/consulting philosophy is based in strong beliefs in the capacity of people to be able to make change that supports their work. The role of a coach/supervisor/consultant is then to provide opportunity for shared reflection and consideration of the experience of undertaking the work in the organisation. In coaching and supervising deep reflection enables unblocking of obstructions to think, learn and action differently about the work. In organisational consulting what is enabled is the capacity to influence structure, culture and strategic processes, to thus add value to the organisation. Wendy’s practice involves the introduction of theory, method and technologies in support of these considerations, however, at its core is always about reflection and dialogue; about people working constructively together.

The Use of Drawing as an Agent of Transformation: a case presentation

Dr Brigid Nossal

Deputy CEO & Director of Consulting, NIODA

 Brigid is a co-founder of NIODA and has worked as an organisational consultant and executive coach for over 25 years. She has been delivering experiential learning programs for over 15 years. This has included staff and Director roles on Group Relations Conferences, teaching in the RMIT and NIODA Masters degree and running external and in-house training programs. Brigid is passionate about systems psychodynamics and Action Learning approaches because of the way that they enable clients to get quickly to the heart of complex issues and provide a practical means for working through them towards sustainable solutions and healthy ways of working. Brigid supports her clients and students to be curious, analytical and systems-oriented in their thinking. So often issues can be approached as if they are personal or inter-personal in nature. However, looked at through an organisational or systems lens, they can appear quite different. In addition, bringing an Action Learning approach builds insight and resilience in individuals and groups. People are better able to navigate through uncertainty and to make better decisions.

Brigid has worked with a broad range of organisations. Over the past 15 years, this has been mostly in the public and not-for-profit sectors. Before that, Brigid delivered accredited in-house training to large private sector organisations such as Southcorp, Simplot and ANZ. The principals of Action Learning can be applied in any organisational setting with excellent results.

Ms Helen McKelvie

Ms Helen McKelvie

Her own roles as internal planning consultant, policy and project manager, and lawyer in workplaces in both the public and private sectors have provided her with first-hand experience of the complexity and challenges of organisational life.

Helen is an alumnus and now teaches in the Master’s program at the National Institute of Organisation Dynamics Australia (NIODA).
