Our Gestalt in OD programme is a series of three courses exploring the core components of professional Organisational Development from a Gestalt perspective. Delivered by trainers who’ve worked with some of the world’s most successful organisations, these short, powerful courses attract a diverse range of professionals keen to harness Gestalt to effect organisational change.
Who attends these courses?
The programme provides both a theoretical background and experiential groupwork to explain what Gestalt-oriented OD is and to demonstrate how it can be powerfully applied. It will be of benefit to:
- Individuals working in an organisation who want to learn the foundations of organisational development
- People with some experience of organisational development who want to learn more about effective interventions
- Gestalt-based counsellors or therapists who wants to enter the field of organisational consulting or coaching
- Experienced OD consultants and coaches keen to focus on the Gestalt aspect of OD work.
