The history of now (Group Relations Australia Conference)
Monday, 28 November–Friday, 2 December
The history of now: creating meaning (in the present moment)
an in-person group relations working conference
International House, Melbourne, Australia
28 November – 2 December 2022
In recent times, interconnected and rapid changes related to the pandemic, climate change, war, and politics, have resulted in complex, global crises. Now, more than ever, we need to learn about the dynamics of leadership and authority as we confront the profound, existential dynamics of today’s interlocking problems.
- What have we learned from our experience?
- How is it changing the ways we think about leading, relating, and managing?
- How might we bring this learning into our workplaces?
This conference is for individuals and organisations who would like the opportunity to explore how their experience has changed and is changing their understanding of leading, relating and managing. It is particularly relevant to students in the Professional Supervision program at the University of Divinity.
Conference purpose and primary task
The purpose of the conference is to provide an opportunity to learn about how we (individually and collectively) make sense of our present experience, and how this informs our understanding of leadership and authority.
Conference staff and members will work on the primary task of the conference, the opportunity to study how we make sense of our experience, and what this means for leading, relating and managing.Conference website Conference brochure
