The purpose of The Tavistock Institute Action Learning Space is to support us in comprehending and staying with these difficult questions. It gathers long used social science methodologies to help people and organisations come unstuck. The Action Learning Space is therefore for those, who have mastered their professions. It polishes their ability to navigate and lead in their communities and organisations.
In this first Lunchtime Talk of 2016 Milena invites you to get a feel of what it means to be a member, to convene and to nurture such a space. We will thus explore meanings of a group, such as:
- what Bion called ‘a storm between minds’ and how this storm nourishes selves in a role, organisations and communities;
- the group as the home and the guide to moral questions;
- the group as a gate to creativity and receptivity that bridges the contemporary doer/thinker divide.
Come along and bring your lunch to discover what makes this initiative a cutting edge opportunity for leaders, citizens and human beings to be the best they can be.
If you would like to attend this talk please send an email to email@example.com with your name, the talk date and title.
If you cannot come, you can Skype – just let us know. You are good.
Every third Wednesday at the Tavistock Institute, staff, associates, trustees and partners have come together for these informal talks. Their intention is the provision of a space of debate and reflection between Tavistock staff, those who are or have been collaborating with us and other interested researchers and practitioners
You are welcome to bring your own lunch.
