Applied Sociometry for Leaders and Managers

This experientially based training includes both theoretical and practical components. As managers and leaders, your role is to help people shift from giving bureaucratic soulless responses to being helpful and purposeful. Why isn’t this easy?

By working with the informal networks of relationships together with your formal organisation structure, you can increase your capacities to help people work well together. This workshop helps you to assess what is going on, and to have your team connect relevantly with others to enact their purpose. We explore ways to connect our own personal and professional identities and remain purposeful and then to assist others with this.

Based on the work of the founder of sociometry, Jacob Moreno, psychiatrist, prolific social researcher, and author, workshop methodologies include here-and-now sociometric investigations, and role training. Expect to be involved and expect to participate. There is a small amount of preparation.
