NOT KNOWING AND COMING TO KNOW

METHODS OF INQUIRY INTO UNCONSCIOUS (HIDDEN) DYNAMICS

IN ORGANISATIONS

NIODA'S 5th Annual Symposium

8, 9 & 10 September 2021

This symposium focuses on how we might learn from the transformations and the dynamics that become embedded into our personal and work lives and our organisations as brought about by the rapidly evolving contexts surrounding us. We are transforming in response. One major example indicates the changes brought by the global pandemic of COVID-19 and the ways in which we have transformed our communications and where and how we work. 

We don’t know what the future will bring and however we consciously plan, some dynamics play out at hidden levels. There are many opportunities to learn as these transitions and transformations occur and become embedded in organisational cultures.  Some are occurring so rapidly that we might easily lose the chance to learn from them. How this can be done is of importance to the ways we might work in the future.

Call for Papers

Not Knowing and Coming to Know: Methods of inquiry into unconscious (hidden) dynamics in organisations

This is an invitation to present papers at this symposium. Presenters are invited to submit abstracts for papers about:

  • Methods of inquiry into organisational change and transformation – research, consultancy or lived experience;
  • Action methods for understanding unconscious dynamics;
  • How we can learn from the way change either supports or disrupts organisational purpose;
  • How we understand the impact of our leadership in response to organisational change and transformation;
  • The strengths and limitations of the methods of inquiry we currently use to understand organisational change and transformation;
  • Learning from different cultures about change and transformation;
  • How are our ways of knowing affected by new virtual technologies and distance meetings.

Abstracts should be approximately 600 words plus references and should be submitted by Friday 28 May 2021.

What is Analytic-Network Coaching?

Analytic-Network Coaching (A-N coaching) is a system that helps clients to develop their personal, authentic leadership approach and strategically influence the networks in which they work, to create positive transformational change. It is not a prescriptive coaching formula, but a process developed by Dr. Simon Western, in which coaches work systematically and adaptively through five “frames” to help their clients to discover deep personal insights, identify and strive for desired change, develop connectedness and understand how to deliver individual and organisational transformation.

This training programme is for experienced coaches to learn and master the A-N five frame coaching system.

The Analytic Network Coaching System

Why Analytic-Network Coaching?

Today we live and work in a networked society, a globalised and connected world. In the workplace, the machine metaphor that dominated the 20th century is no-longer fit for purpose. It is replaced in the 21st century by the metaphor of the eco-system, representing our inter-dependent, networked and fast changing workplaces. Large and small organisations are realising that new forms of leadership are required to influence the eco-systems in which we work; eco-systems made up of technology, machines, architecture, people and nature. ‘ Eco-leadership’ captured in Simon’s book Leadership – A Critical Text (Western, 2013) describes the new form of ethical and practical leadership required for our times, and is recognised by scholars and practitioners internationally.

In his coaching and consulting work with CEOs and senior leaders in global businesses and large public sector organisations, Simon found that there was both, recognition of and a desire for change, but very little practical help to support it. This prompted him to spend five years researching and practicing coaching methods to refine how to develop leaders to think and act in authentic and networked ways. This research can be found in Coaching and Mentoring – A Critical Text (Western, 2012), which defines the first meta-theory of coaching, and applies coaching to the challenges of today’s networked society.

Through his acclaimed theoretical work on coaching and leadership, Simon has produced the A-N Five Frame coaching system, that supports the development of Eco-leadership.

Put simply it is coaching new leaders for new times.

What you get from this course

During Certification you will:

• Discover deep personal insights, and develop your advanced coaching skills
• Learn how to coach leaders to think strategically and develop sustainable strategies for change
• Be able to offer leaders new conceptual frameworks, including networked strategy
• Maximise your clients’ capacity to develop rich relationships and connectedness, and positively influence their networks
• Understand how to support individual and organisational transformation
• Learn how to support leaders to work ethically and with emancipatory aims

Writing Workshop 2021

Writing Workshop 2021

Writing Workshop

This workshop aims to help participants become authors of their written pieces; to discover the role of author; to allow their imagination to flourish. It also looks to the fundamentals of good writing and editing.

Writing Workshop

Professor Susan Long

Three days – Wednesday to Friday 26, 27 and 28 May 2021

 

Professor Susan Long, author of many books and peer-reviewed articles, is offering a writing workshop for those who want to find the genuine author in themselves. Writing can take many forms: academic theses, research reports, persuasive items, business reports, journalistic pieces, novels and poems. Although having different purposes and audiences, all writing can be creative, and all messes can be cleaned up later.  This workshop aims to help participants become authors of their written pieces; to discover the role of author; to allow their imagination to flourish. It also looks to the fundamentals of good writing and editing.

In the Writing workshop, participants will approach questions such as:
Why do I want to publish?
Who is my audience?
How do I choose a journal or publisher?
What do reviewers and editors look for?
How can I manage time for writing?
How do I present and develop an argument?
How should I work with case study material?
How can I understand and develop my style?

There will be time for writing and gaining feedback.

Leadership in the Pandemic and Beyond

Utilizing Lacan’s ‘Three Moments’ & the theory of Eco-leadership

Dr Simon Western

 

Wednesday 21 April 2021

6- 8 pm Melbourne time

Dr Simon Western will present this seminar on leadership in the pandemic, and on developing new leadership for new times. Drawing on Lacanian psychoanalytic thinking and his own theories of Eco-Leadership, Simon offers ways to think about three distinct phases of leadership during a crisis. His work develops a leadership theory and practice that demands an ethical leadership that engages with technological, natural and social ecosystems.

This seminar aims to:
– help make sense of the leadership pandemic responses we experienced
– act as a guide for future practice

The presentation draws on two influences:
a) Lacan’s theory of Logical time & his three moments, as a way of thinking about how “intersubjective time structures human action” (Lacan in Ecrits)
b) The theory & practice of Eco-Leadership developed by Western. S (2019)

The Unconscious – The Evolution of an Idea

This follows the lecture given for the Eric Miller Memorial Lecture 2020

Professor Susan Long

 

Wednesday 24 March 2021

6- 8 pm Melbourne time

In this seminar, Susan will explore some of the origins of our thinking about the unconscious and how its conceptualisation has changed over time from its philosophical underpinnings, through Freud and Psychoanalysis, into understanding broad group and societal phenomena. The unconscious is a transformative idea and provides potential explanations for what seem often to be intractable personal, work and social issues.

The idea of the unconscious is central to psychoanalytic and socioanalytic theories. It is an idea about processes that are elusive and can only be observed through their effects, or inferred from the gaps in our direct experience, and hence is constantly hypothetical and open to challenge; so, we may expect the idea of the unconscious to be in constant evolution. It is a thought about thoughts; an idea about ideas. It is an idea about how thoughts influence us even though we may not be aware of them. It is an idea about what we do with unwanted thoughts or thoughts that we are not ready to entertain. It is an idea about how thoughts shape and are shaped by our experience. It is an idea that responds to the question: what lies beneath consciousness? Or put another way: what prevents us from consciously thinking thoughts?
