Native or Alien?
NIODA Seminar Katy Rowett

9 October 2019

NIODA Seminar Katy Rowett

Katy’s research, Native or Alien, has been conducted using the theory, procedures, and wisdom from the theoretical framework of system psychodynamics and creative and experiential arts inquiry. Native or Alien is designed to illuminate the social defenses that occur, consciously or unconsciously, for people when they experience cultural difference. Culture, in this sense, meaning every element of one’s identity and the group norms and rituals that provide the frame of reference and the lens in which we look through to process, evaluate and react to our experiences. 

Attendees will engage in an experiential activity to explore the dynamics engaged in when collaborating with the ‘other’. 

The activity will share learnings from the research and take delegates on a journey through a facilitated role-play, observation and closing plenary session.

Katy has a Masters in Organisation Dynamics and teaches as a Faculty member in the Master of Leadership and Management (Organisation Dynamics) course. Katy is in the final stages of her professional doctorate research into the systems psychodynamics of intercultural relations.

Katy’s career spans over 25 years as a Leader in multiple industries and across diverse geographies including, Africa, India, Singapore, China, Berlin and Spain. She has been an advocate and disrupter within the digital and business agility movement in Australia and abroad, leading multiple organisations through major transformations using systems psychodynamic methods and approaches.

Katy has gratefully served many people as a leader, coach and mentor and has frequently played the role of trusted advisor to executives in large corporate organisations.

Where do words come from?

Where do words come from?
NIODA Seminar Dr Janet Duke

4 September 2019

NIODA Seminar Dr Janet Duke

Where do words come from?  My journey of transformation from the ‘perfect active obstetrician’ to the ’contemplative spiritual director’ who works from the place of the unknown, utilising the lenses of Wilfred Bion and Quaker Spirituality. 

Janet graduated from Monash University B.Med.Sci(Hons); M.B.B.S (Hons).  After the usual early postgraduate years, she trained as an obstetrician and gynaecologist at RWH in Carlton being the first woman for 25 years to do so and won the F.J.Browne medal for RACOG for her membership examinations. She then travelled to Glasgow to complete her postgraduate studies and during this time won the Gold Medal of the RCOG College.
In 1983 she returned to Melbourne as the RACOG College Research Fellow. Janet was also a Fellow in Clinical Genetics at the RCH and RWH for several years.
Her love of patient contact and obstetrics resulted in her appointment as Consultant Obstetrician at RWH in 1986 and the start of a very busy private practice.
In the late 1980’s she was very involved with the start of the Centre Against Sexual Assault at RWH and was on the Board and Honorary Consultant Gynaecologist until the late 1990s. During this time she was appointed as one of the first three Advisors re Sexual Assault to the Anglican Archbishop of Melbourne.
Her involvement with the RACOG at governance level started in the 1980s with her election to the State Committee. In 1992 she was elected to the Federal Council of the College. She was actively engaged in working for part-time training and the Women’s Careers Committee.
In 1998 with the creation of the Royal Australasian College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology she was the inaugural Honorary Secretary for two terms. During this time the college ethics committee was created. Janet also served on the AMA Ethics Committee as the College’ representative.
In 2006 whilst still working full time she started for training as a Spiritual Director at WellSpring part of what is now the University of Divinity. She completed a Grad Dip in 2008. She then undertook a MA in Spiritual Direction rewriting Winnicott’s writing on the Holding Environment from a Spiritual Director’s perspective. She has a Grad Certificate in Supervision.
In late 2013 Janet commenced a part-time PhD entitled Where do words come from? An autoethnographic study of the journey of transformation from the active “perfect” obstetrician to the contemplative Spiritual director who can work from the place of the unknown. She is using the lenses of the writings of Wilfred Bion and aspects of Quaker Spirituality to analyse her data.
Janet ceased medical practice in 2016 and plays bridge and works as a spiritual director.
Janet has a very large stepfamily having inherited nine stepchildren when she married in 1984. Her late husband David was an Anglican priest and they had 31 very happy years together. She revels in her 13 grandchildren and four great grand children.
In 2019 she was awarded on OAM for services to Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

Writing workshop

Writing workshop

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. And it also looks to the fundamentals of good writing and editing.

Thursday, Friday & Saturday 3-5 October

Three-day writing workshop in Fingal, Victoria

Writing Workshop with Dr Susan Long

Prof 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. And it also looks to the fundamentals of good writing and editing. 

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.

“And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.” 
– The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

Intuitive Leadership Workshop

Intuitive Leadership Workshop

Intuitive Leadership Workshop

This three-day workshop focuses on developing leadership intelligence through work with leadership role analysis; reflective practice, associative thinking and personal scrutiny.

14th -16th August 2019

Melbourne, Australia

Intuitive Leadership Workshop

This three-day intuitive leadership workshop focuses on developing leadership intelligence through work with leadership role analysis; reflective practice, associative thinking and personal scrutiny.

Throughout the three days you will be invited to examine the way that you take up leadership roles: through exploring your own current roles in a disciplined manner, through taking part in experiential exercises with verbal and non-verbal components; and through reflection on and integration of learning. Group and team dynamics will be explored through the double task method of pausing from time to time in the work to note their occurrence. The double task means that a group works both at a substantial task and also monitors their dynamics in an ongoing way.

Intuitive leadership draws on the intuitive intelligence of leaders and followers. Intuitive intelligence, involves working with one’s experience at an unconscious and immediate level. It brings together past experiences and knowledge at cognitive, sensing and emotional levels. Intuitive leadership is not magical but hard won through its balance with cognitive and emotional intelligence, the development of negative capability, reflective practice, associative thinking and personal scrutiny; all of which require study and practice.

Leadership involves many capacities to influence, guide, inspire, direct, support, challenge, emotionally hold and enable others. It requires the use of many forms of intelligence – cognitive, emotional, non-verbal sensing and intuitive.  At NIODA, we use methods that examine and develop leadership as part of a whole of organisation approach – a systemic approach; beginning with Leadership Role Analysis – a type of Organisational Role Analysis (ORA).

“I recommend this workshop to others wanting to explore and experience transformational leadership up close and personal. An insightful and thought-provoking encounter that continues to have a resounding impact on my practice.”

Day One

Day one will introduce you to the concepts that support leadership role analysis, and give you some experience in working in this way. The “Transforming Experience Framework” will be introduced to aid in role analysis. Group and team dynamics will be explored as they occur.

Day Two

Day two takes you into leadership role biography and role history. Here you will explore some of the important leadership roles that you have taken and/or wish to take up. You will discover the patterns of your own role taking and how they affect your leadership currently.

Day Three

Day three returns to role analysis work and integrates the verbal, non-verbal and intuitive learning that has occurred.

What is Organisational Role Analysis?

Organisational Role Analysis (ORA) is a disciplined and focussed method to help people understand and develop the way they take up their work role and its authority, responsibilities, accountabilities and relationships. Distinctively, the ORA approach examines role rather than personality. Instead of focusing on the person and what they bring to the role, ORA construes the role within the wider system and context and explores how role, person, system and context are interrelated. ORA is a powerful leadership, coaching and consulting tool and can be used in a variety of different organisational settings.

“This was extremely insightful in the ways individuals and groups work and what we draw on to make sense of our roles.”

Group and System Dynamics

Role analysis requires an understanding of group and systems dynamics, in particular, the complex interrelationship of person, role, system, context and source.

Role When we move toward the system (organisation-in-the-mind/experience of the client) we can explore it through the role as a part of the system. How does the system look from this role? What does the system demand of this role? What does the system ‘put into’ this role through its structure and dynamics? What is the purpose and task of the system and how does this shape the person, role and culture?

Person – When we move toward the person, we can explore how the role affects the person and what they bring to the role. What thoughts, motives and emotions are generated by the role? What skills and capacities does the person bring from their training, personality and history? How do these shape the role?

Context – Person, role and system are all affected by the social, cultural, economic and environmental context. What do current contexts bring to the person-role-system dynamic?

System – When we look across the person-role-system-context, we see the effects on the system of how the person takes up, shapes and works with the authority of the role within contextual constraints. We may also see how the system shapes the role and fills the person so that they experience issues that are in them but not of them; all this is within a social, political, economic, and educational context.

Source – provides the impetus, meaning and purpose for the person-role-system-context framework.

“An ongoing reinforcement for me personally that this is important work and that I can continue to develop a level of capability in the tools and techniques and trust myself in the moment.”

Working with Sensing and Non-Verbal Communitation

This workshop challenges you to work with sensing and non-verbal material as well as through verbal communication and conceptual understanding. All these come together in taking up a role, even when we think that we are only in one or other of these modalities. Day one works with intuitive intelligence in understanding the nuances of role and its emotional impact on self and others. Day two is designed to allow you to explore your leadership and team work strengths and weaknesses as they have emerged through your own personal biography and how you envisage your future leadership roles. Day three brings your sensing and non-verbal learning together with your more logical problem-solving intelligence through working on dedicated observation tasks. Each day challenges your skills at observation, empathy, timing, communication, teamwork, authority and assertion.

Who is this Intuitive Leadership Workshop for?

This workshop is for leaders, managers and consultants (internal and external) who want to:

• explore their own leadership or work role in depth;

wish to develop and explore their own capacity for intuitive intelligence;

• coach or advise others on how to be effective in their roles;

• understand and explore work roles in general and how they emerge systemically.

“To further experience of the use of drawing as a powerful tool for exploration and how this simple approach can unearth strong and complex emotions, patterns and enable deep conversation.”
