This conference is an experiential learning event designed to support reflection at a time of significant change.

At international, national and community level this is a period of “shifting sands”.  With so much personal and social movement, what does it take to hold one’s place?  Equally, how do we find the courage to encounter the new, instead of just defending one’s position.  These are the proposed themes of the conference.

This event is for all those who are interested in exploring aspects of leadership, followership and their role in the workplace and elsewhere. The weekend consists of a range of small group, large group and inter-group events which enable participants to learn about the impact they have on others, and the impact others have on them, in a managed context.

The conference makes use group relations methodology. It is designed and delivered by staff and associates of the Department of Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic Studies, University of Essex.
