The Group Relations Programme

Group Relations conferences are a vital ingredient for anyone interested in developing and deepening their leadership strategy and organisational practice

Group Relations conferences offer opportunities to learn about group, organisational and social dynamics; the exercise of authority from role, and power from person; the interplay between tradition, innovation and change; and the relationship of organisations to their social, political and economic environments.

Since 1957, the Tavistock Institute has been leading thinking about groups and organisations. Since the inception of its ground-breaking methodology for learning about leadership - the Group Relations Conference (GRC) - a global community of activity has emerged. 

A GRC is an accelerated learning experience or a ‘real time’ learning laboratory

Drawing on ideas of representation, systems theory and the daily realities of uncertainty, all underpinned by a psychoanalytic and an action research frames, we have been helping those engaged in leading to think more deeply and profoundly about their role and purpose. 

The Leicester Conference is the flagship of Group Relations conferences and institutions around the world and the home of learning by experience.

During the last decade, we have continued this tradition in new and creative ways, taking the work further into the global east and south whilst building on our western and northern historic heartland.
