Led by 12 certified consultants, attendees will explore complex group dynamics to reveal how authority and power, as well as leadership, followership, and boundaries operate in the different group experiences they enter. The conference events are experiential and weave with art and other non-verbal forms of expression to illuminate unconscious dynamics operating in the system of group interactions that members and staff will create together.
Conference outcomes include:
- Developing leadership capacity in turbulent environments;
- Improving strategic thinking through a deeper understanding of how organizations reflect their social, cultural, economic and political environments;
- Understanding how your leadership style affects the group by experimenting with how you respond to the conference’s developing organizational culture;
- Learning about “under the surface” forces that impact individuals, groups and organizations;
- And applying these insights to the ways you manage your work roles and your professional development.
The conference will be followed by review and application work coordinated by Grex, where conference participants reflect upon and integrate their experience into their real life.
Grex is approved by the California Psychological Association to provide continuing professional education for psychologists (PhD), and by the Board of Behavioral Sciences to provide continuing professional education for Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (MFT/LPCC/LCSW). Grex maintains responsibility for this program and its content.
