Group Relations Conference: Authority and Leadership In Groups and Organizations
 Group Relations Conference:
Authority and Leadership
In Groups and Organizations
 
Visible & Invisible
 
 
Tao is invisibly empty, but its use is plentiful.
It is profound like the originator of all things.
It shows no sharpness, stays away from entanglements,
glows with veiled radiance, mingles with dust.
It is formless and invisible, but indeed exists.
I do not know where it comes from.
It seems to have appeared before the existence of God.
------Lao-Tsu (6th Century B.C.)

An experiential conference in the Tavistock tradition offering
a unique opportunity to study group and organizational processes.
 
 
 
 
 
Effective leadership and the meaningful exercise of authority require more than intellectual and technical understanding. The Group Relations model in the Tavistock tradition provides a well-defined context within which to examine group-level forces and dynamics as they occur in the here-and-now. As people work in groups, families and other social systems, their participation takes on many different meanings - influencing thoughts, feelings and action. The confluence of individual meanings powerfully affects the identities, roles and authority we take on in groups, schools, organizations, institutions, communities and society.
Members of a Group Relations Conference have the opportunity to directly experience:
wHow people join and engage in group work, delegate and resist authority, and develop roles and reputations.
wHow people contribute to and obstruct getting the group’s work accomplished.
How members of a group exercise authority, power and influence in meaningful and appropriate ways—both as leaders and as followers.
wHow groups collude in the creation and enabling of maladaptive roles.
wHow groups provide support for recovering from these maladaptive roles.
In applying the learning from Group Relations Conferences, having two or more people from the same organization attend the conference together is often useful.
 
 
 
 
This Conference is designed for individuals who wish to study the exercise of authority in groups and understand more about their experiences and reactions to exercising and encountering authority.
 
The Conference is organized as a sequence of group and inter-group interactions.
 
Events include experiences in:
 
wSmall Group—
Members examine the life of an eight to twelve member group as it unfolds in the here-and-now, with the assistance of one or more consultants.
 
wLarge Group—
Members examine the life of a large group, consisting of all conference members, as it unfolds in the here-and-now. This process is facilitated by a team of consultants who help members explore the dynamics of group life when face-to-face interaction with all members is not possible.
 
wInstitutional Event—
Members form their own groups to interact with other member groups and staff. The primary task of the Institutional Event is to study the relationships between and amongst groups, including the staff and institution management teams.
 
wReview /Application Group—
Groups of five to seven members meet with one or more consultants to consolidate their learning in the conference and apply it to their lives outside of the conference. Members are encouraged to reflect on the roles that they take up in the conference and relate them to roles they take up in work and other community settings.
 
 
Please note: The conference is designed to provide an integrated experience. Learning occurs not only during individual conference events but also from their sequence and relationship to one another; therefore, membership entails a commitment to attend all events.
