Gestalt brings a unique perspective to organisational issues. The focus on detailed observation and here and now awareness, its rigorous separation of data and interpretation, its emphasis on exploration and experiment and its innovative methodologies for addressing rigid patterns and blocked process all combine to create a powerful array of tools for anyone seeking to make sense of organisations. Gestalt works well in combination with analytic and other models to create new opportunities for change and the development of systems and individuals. This workshop will provide you with a practical introduction to the foundations of gestalt and how they can be applied to organisations. It is also designed as a first step for anyone who wants to join our “Gestalt in Organisational Development In Practice” programme.
