A Group Relations Conference is an experiential event intended for anyone wishing to develop their understanding of relationships in their professional life.  This experiential conference offers an excellent learning opportunity to explore the challenges and inter-relatedness between leadership and followership within and between groups and organisations.  

International, national and local systems are in a state of flux. How can we work effectively under such conditions? How can we question what we take to be the norms of organisational life, and discover the potential for collective engagement while recognising and valuing our differences and commonalities?

The overall aim of the Conference is to assist participants to explore and understand more fully the complexity of individual and organisational identity within an uncertain context, in order to apply those insights to their professional practice, their work with and within organisations, and their interactions in society.

This conference is open to those who work within the health and social care, education and criminal justice systems. It is also for people who work within academia, voluntary and statutory bodies and the religious establishment.There will be a maximum of 40 participants.

To apply to join the Conference please see flyer on this page.
