Event description
Contracts at Work: The 4th in a workshop series relating to Applying Transactional Analysis in the Workplace (Organisational TA)

About this Event

The fourth in a series of 10 x monthly Organisational Transactional Analysis online workshops (6.00pm - 8.00pm London BST)

Organisational Transactional Analysis is a powerful tool for anyone working on improving communication, processes and relations within an organisation. This series of workshops is designed to facilitate professionals in consultancy, HR and People Management and counsellors in private practice working with clients within an organisational setting, in applying TA principles and concepts at a personal level, group level and within whole organisations to allow growth and change.

You will meet other interested individuals with whom you can discuss your professional thinking and we invite you to be open to share in discussions on Organisational Culture, Feedback Instruments, Values and Purpose or any other concepts you work with. This will be another learning opportunity for everyone in the workshop.

Pre-Course Requirement: Participants must have a basic knowledge of TA (at least having attended The Official Introduction to Transactional Analysis (TA101). For each workshop we have provided some suggestions for pre-reading material, ranging from Essential TA knowledge to ideas for expanding your knowledge further.

Contracts at Work

Contracts are a very well known term in organisational settings and refer to the agreement of two parties exchanging goods in the wider sense, like exchange money for time. Eric Berne defined a contract as an explicit bilateral commitment to a well defined course of action. This specifies that we are not only exchanging goods, but also agree with each other what it is what we will do with and for each other. In reality we find ourselves at work in agreements to the organisation, the group and individuals.

In 1975, Fanita English developed the Three-Cornered Contract Model, which sheds light onto the multi-level reality of working and is one of the pillars of Transactional Analysis in Organisations. Nelly Micholt followed up in 1992 with her view on the Psychological Distance within Three-Cornered Contract which describes the reality we face as Organisational Consultants in working with Individuals of Organisations.

Organisational Consultants are often paid by organisations while they work with specific groups and individuals who are also paid by the organisation. Working in this triangle can cause questions of loyality and ethics. In this module we will look at the theoretical framework to share our thinking, feeling and our experience on how we have managed this so far.
