 Small Study Group Series

Eight live interactive online sessions with

Dr Wendy Harding


Eight two-hour sessions 3 – 5 pm

Monday 2 August till 4 October 2021 (Excluding 30 August, 27 September)

NIODA is offering alumni and friends of NIODA an exciting and valuable opportunity to explore online small group dynamics through participation in a small study group. Studying online small group dynamics  is likely to be new to all, with the learning providing such 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

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.
