Introduction to Systemic Organisational Practice
This introductory workshop invites an orientation to key concepts of systemic leadership and consulting practice. It also provides a sound basis for joining the Systemic Organisational Practice Dialogues, June 8-10, and, further, The Diploma in Systemic Leadership and Consulting Practice, January 2020.
Systemic practical theory helps leaders and consultants to orientate within, make sense of and act intelligently in the organisational system, in ways that enable organisational tasks, roles and responsibilities to be meaningfully developed within a multiplicity of contexts such as organisational cultures, relationships and identities.
Our contemporary organisational experience is often fragmented or machine like. The frameworks offered here enable a focus on organisational concerns about effectiveness and efficiency shaped by a commitment to reflect on the ways we all contribute to the social realities of the organisational system from within an ethical frame. Systemic approaches, methods and techniques relate to the organisation as a network of conversations, respecting and giving meaning to the responses of organisational actors, with the commitment to building imaginative future realities.
Specific contextual models and tools are offered in this workshop for considering the coordination of meaning and action for organisational members and for identifying domains of experience within organisational conversations.
To facilitate engagment with these ideas the number of participants is limited to 12.
- Systemic and social constructionist theory of communication (CMM)
- Domains of Systemic Practice
- Critical management theory
- Research into systemic reflexivity and organisational emergence
The course will take place in the Seminar room, Ground Floor (IGA), 1 Daleham Gardens, London, NW3 5BY.
- Swiss Cottage (Jubilee Line)
- Finchley Road (Jubilee & Metropolitan Lines)
