The Leicester conference 2016
‘What day is it?’
‘It’s today,’ squeaked Piglet.
‘My favourite day,” said Pooh.

Leading and following in contemporary organisations requires a skill in working out when to push and when to ‘let it be’. When working with passion and intensity it is easy to lose sight of the purpose of the organisation and where you are trying to get to. How do you find the flow? There is not one flow but many different currents, eddies and ebbs which we can move with – opening up possibilities. But if something just isn’t working, being able to turn around lightly, to sense the potentiality around you, means you can find grace in your actions.
The Leicester conference is our flagship Group Relations conference and the title for this year is The Art of Role: TAO of Tavistock. Come and explore how to pay better attention to the Task, use your Authority and understand your Organisation.
Being authentic in role is an art. It requires an understanding of your gifts, your blind spots and finding the capacity to mobilise new strategies in changing contexts. Group Relations methodology has been incorporated into the programmes of the world’s leading Business Schools and this is an invitation to come to the Leicester conference, the home of Group Relations and truly learn from your experience, going where no text book can take you.
Now is the time to put in your application – there is an Early Bird discount at the moment of £300.
The dates are: 13 – 26 August 2016
The conference is held at the University of Leicester. For a brochure or more information, please contact Rachel Kelly:

Things just happen in the right way, at the right time. At least when you let them, when you work with circumstances instead of saying, ‘This isn’t supposed to be happening this way,’ and trying harder to make it happen some other way.
Benjamin Hoff, The Tao of Pooh
