Organisational Transactional analysis can offer a way to understand the subtleties that interfere with health, wellbeing and success within organisations. It also provides options and approaches to bring about change.
In his writing, Eric Berne presents a number of interesting ideas and concepts about organisations and how they work; particularly his books ‘Games People Play’ (1964/1967), ‘Principles of Group Treatment’ (1966) and ‘The Structure and Dynamics of Organisations and Groups’ (1974).
What was particularly unique and powerful about Berne’s work was the notion that organisations take on a life of their own and that behaviour of individual members can only really be understood within this context. A wealth of TA practitioners have added to his thinking since; many with original ideas and concepts.
This two-day ‘taster’ workshop, led by Vanessa Williams, is aimed at those new to Organisational TA. Vanessa is an executive coach and business consultant with expertise in leadership development, team development and organisational change. She has held a number of HR roles, including at Board level. She holds an MBA, has been studying Organisational TA since 2006 and is a contractual trainee preparing for the CTA examination.
This workshop will give you the opportunity to explore a selection of TA from Berne and beyond and consider this in relation to an organisation (or organisations) you know as well as participate in discussion and activities aimed at supporting your learning. Topics that will be introduced include the Structure and Dynamics of organisations, Organisation Culture, Group behaviour and what it means to think systemically.
Overall, you will take away insights and tools you can use to get a better understanding of how organisations work and identify potential solutions to challenges within organisations you are part of.
A Link Centre certificate will be presented at the end of the course.
Cancellation Policy: 50% refund will be given on cancellations with more than 7 days’ notice.
