Ongoing Gestalt Personal Development and Supervision Group for Consultants and Coaches
OD Consultants and Coaches often feel left alone and isolated after they have finished their training or when they have long worked on their own. Then there is a need for a stable and trusted community that provides a safe place to work on personal issues and offers support when working with difficult cases and clients.
To address this need, we will start an ongoing Gestalt Group and build a learning community with the aim to meet regularly 2 times per year alternating between Germany (Berlin) and the UK. We offer a kick-off weekend for up to 10 interested participants who would like to establish and be part of it.
Max No of participants: 10
Cost: 260 €

Workshop "Shame in Organisations"
Shame is not only the most intensely painful feeling and experience of being wrong, not enough and not belonging, but also the least talked about, as people affected are often unaware, confused with guilt or simply trying to hide. This is the case in the private sphere and even more so in public and organisational life.
In organisations, shame often underlies narcissistic leadership patterns and is a widely used “tool” to exert power, keep people small and at their place. It is related to perfectionism, (work-)addiction, procrastination and isolation – amongst others. It affects our wellbeing at the workplace and is a major inhibitor to honesty, creativity, learning, innovation and change.
In this workshop, we will examine typical shame processes, learn how shame is established and triggered and raise awareness on reactions and avoidance behaviours from a field perspective. We will look at how shame plays out in different groups and organisations, how it can be detected and what we can do to avoid that shame contaminates the field and our relationships.
The workshop is intended for Consultants, Facilitators, Coaches/Counsellors and Psychotherapists who work with people in organisations or deal with shame in the workplace and who want to develop their insight, knowledge and skills in recognising, attending to and handling shame, vulnerability and guilt in an organisational context.
