The ART of ROLE: TAO of Tavistock

13 – 26 August 2016

This annual Group Relations residential conference, which has been running since 1957, is designed for those who are looking to develop their leadership and managerial capacity to effect change in work groups and organisations and to improve their ability to work with complex and challenging issues.

The Leicester conference provides unique and exciting opportunities for you to learn through experience about group, organisation’s and social dynamics and the exercise of authority and power. How to get the most out of your team, generating goodwill and employee ‘buy-in’ – followership – and understanding and working with your own and your organisation’s resistance to change.

There is now wide recognition that group and systems psychodynamics play a vital part in the success or failure of work projects and organisational change. Likewise, the understanding and management of feelings, tensions and other dynamics in group situations are essential to effective leadership.

Each conference is a temporary organisation consisting of a series of events which are designed to enable the exploration of different work experiences and behaviour. So, there are no presenters as such; instead the conference staff offer working hypotheses based on their experiences and understanding of what is happening in the ‘here and now’ during the various events.

The 70th Leicester Conference invites you to find out about the different boundaries with which we engage in our daily professional encounters, including the boundary relationship between mind and body, yourself and your colleagues, colleagues and the environment, the creative potential within these relationships and your capacity to transform organisational life into a meaningful experience of citizenship in this world.

For a brochure for 2016 or if you have any questions, please contact Rachel Kelly.
