This event provided an opportunity to collectively reflect on: “How the TIHR traditions influence my practice of … in dealing with … and what and how I have customised for my particular situation or circumstance”.
The event convened by Jean Neumann (Tavistock Institute’s Professional Partner and Senior Fellow in Scholarly Practice) and Antonio Sama (Tavistock Institute’s Professional Partner and Faculty at Christ Church Business School), welcomed individuals who identify with the schools of thought associated with TIHR. Those who have previously attended the Institute’s professional development programmes or have been influenced by Tavisock traditions in professional practice were invited to share their experiences with simpatico people on how TIHR traditions have informed their practice, drawing collective learning on their fitness to address today’s organisational and societal challenges. The dialogue will contribute to the designing of a Symposium on the Institute history and contemporary relevance for the Academy of Management annual meeting in Chicago 2018
A 90-minute’s collective reflective space was offered (e.g., “cocktail party”, “median group”) where participants could speak to the topic.
