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

Dr Brigid Nossal

Organisational Role Analysis

Organisational Analysis (TEF)

Brigid has worked as a coach with executives and managers for over 25 years. Her expertise is in Organisational Role Analysis and, more recently, Analytic-Network Coaching. Her approach is to work with clients to create a confidential exploratory space for examining and reflecting upon work roles, organisations, and the systems that they are part of. By supporting clients to adopt an analytical and systems focus, it is possible to get to the heart of personal and organisational challenges and how these impact both the individual and the system they are working in. Bringing two enquiring minds to the work teases out hidden assumptions and delivers new insights that support constructive decision-making. The ORA fosters this reflective method and a capability for questioning and challenging habitual ways of thinking that endures long after the coaching has ended.
Brigid has worked with a broad range of organisations, mostly in the public and not-for-profit sectors. Her passion is to provide opportunities for leaders to develop the skills and experience to reflect deeply upon the kinds of organisations, systems and societies that we are all engaged in co-creating.

Wendy Harding NIODA Coach

Dr Wendy Harding

Organisational Role Analysis
Organisational Analysis (TEF)

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.

Responsive change to intentional transformation

Ms Jennifer Burrows

Organisational Role Analysis
Organisational Analysis (TEF)

I bring systems thinking and a socioanalytic lens to help organisations and individuals thrive in complex environments. I approach coaching through working collaboratively with the person being coached, holding the tension between leaving space for emergence and achieving the desired outcomes, using the unique situation and presenting needs as the starting point. The co-created results are relevant, immediately applicable and owned by the participants.

I have extensive experience working in the education sector leading change innovations, as well as with Boards of not-for-profit companies. I hold a Masters in Philosophy of Social Innovation (Organisational Analysis & Leadership) through the Grubb School of Organisational Analysis, as well as a Master of Business (Training & Change Management) and other qualifications in education. I am a Board member of Annecto, a not-for-profit age and disability support organisation, and a Director of Group Relations Australia.

Rob Ryan NIODA Coach

Mr Rob Ryan

Organisational Role Analysis
A-N Coaching (accredited)
Organisational Analysis (TEF)

Rob specialises in coaching, strategic planning and evaluation, organisation and service reviews, team and leadership development and stakeholder engagement in government, business and not-for-profit sectors. He has nineteen years experience in coaching and consulting to a variety of organisations on projects involving evaluation, review and capacity building.

Rob’s approach is informed by his previous CEO, service management, workplace relations and education leadership roles. He has high level skills in designing and leading large change projects and also in working with individuals, boards, leadership teams and other work groups.

He has supported many organisations in coaching individuals, reviewing and developing governance structures and processes and has had leadership roles in many not-for-profit organisations. He is currently the Director of Administration of the International Society for the Psychoanalytic Study of Organisations and also co-convenes their Australian activities.

Coaching supports continuous holistic learning. Often today, the generic versions of ‘coaching’ (and some counselling) can involve treating work challenges as being derived primarily from individual inadequacies, and therefore the interventions focus on changing these – individuals tend to be pathologized, as if they ‘need fixing’.

Therefore, it is important to examine the client’s experience of the work system, how they ‘see’ it, ‘feel’ it, exploring overt assumptions and also exploring what may be out of their awareness, but which is influencing their experiences.

This form of holistic coaching provides insights into the whole of the experience and enables a re-integration of perspectives on what is happening and why it may be happening. This provides opportunities for development of better informed insights and more effective action than may occur solely through, for example, a purely goal-based coaching program.
