WORKING INTO THE FUTURE

BUILDING INDIVIDUAL & ORGANISATIONAL CULTURE

BEYOND 2020

NIODA'S 4th Annual Symposium

9, 10 & 11 September 2020

This symposium focuses on how organisations can best equip themselves for working into a complex future where industries and professions are interconnected globally, technologically and are interconnected through diversity in and between our organisations. In addition, the importance of connectedness to the local community becomes evident. Twenty-twenty is a year where we have twenty years of experience in the twenty-first century with many indications of what is to come. The context includes environmental issues, workforce diversity, political and technological changes. Internally we need to address organisational governance, leadership capabilities, stakeholder engagement and organisational culture.

What are the capacities that will enable organisations to thrive in the future? Many of these are intangible, not easily measured, yet critical to the health and success of an organisation. For instance: the capacities to work with diverse and complex differences between people and ideas; the capacity to withhold judgement and reflect on processes alongside the capacity to make informed decisions and act decisively; and, the capacity to see and work with the interconnectedness between the organisation, its purpose, tasks, people and context.

The Symposium is an opportunity for industries and organisations to interact and think together with experienced socioanalytic professionals. It is a timely opportunity to consider the primary issues of leading organisations in the twenty-first century. It offers both theoretical and strongly practical approaches.

Working into the future: Symposium 2020

AUD $250 for the full live interactive online event.

All sessions will be recorded and made available to symposium participants, so you can see all the sessions, no matter what your timezone!

Reflective Practice in Organisational Life

Reflective practice involves the ability to reflect on decisions and actions made and/or contemplated in order to engage in a process of continuous learning. This aids in the anticipation of future actions and on their purpose and processes. It links theory and practice; through reflection, team members are able to identify and articulate theoretical and practical ideas within the context of their work. Reflection takes a conscious look at emotions, experiences, actions, and responses, and uses this information to inform practice.

Reflection can also lead to working hypotheses about hidden or unacknowledged dynamics in teams. This, in turn, can address previously held ‘unspeakable’ ideas, which once raised can be dealt with creatively.

Beyond Ticking the Box: Conversations that matter between Aboriginal Leaders and Non Aboriginal Leaders in White Organisations

annecto, a human rights-oriented disability and aged care organisation, has built a partnership relationship with the Aboriginal community over a number of years.

The interactions and relationships developed between the leaders came to symbolise a different way of working together on a shared future as an organisation and community.

The session will explore, through story and conversation, what was challenging, what worked, what didn’t, what was hopeful, what wasn’t, and what might help others on the journey.

DR JIM KRANTZ

The Century of the System: Complexity and Interconnectedness in our Social, Organizational and Community Lives.

This presentation discusses how systems thinking provides a lens that is essential for understanding today’s challenges.

Our highly complex, globalized, information-intensive world is comprised of interdependent and inter-locking systems rather than free-standing organizations. Only through understanding how these systems operate will we be able to identify and address root causes.

By recognizing the importance of systems thinking and systemic responses, leaders and their teams can craft more effective, collaborative approaches to the complex situations they face.

About NIODA

The National Institute of Organisation Dynamics Australia (NIODA) offers internationally renowned post-graduate education and research, and decades of experience consulting with Australian organisations.

The study of organisation dynamics brings together socio-technical and psychoanalytic disciplines to explore the unconscious dynamics that exist in every group, team or organisation.
