Welcome to the 17th Systems-Centered Annual Conference!
April 9–15, 2016 • San Francisco
Who’s In Charge? Dominance, Submission and Cooperation
at Work and at Home
Welcome to Conference 2016.
We’re looking forward to a lively exploration of dominance, submission and cooperation in our work contexts and at home.
The weekend Institute and 5-day Conference offer a wide range of training groups, interactive workshops and a large group experience in which we can explore our tendencies towards compliance, defiance and cooperation.
- Apply Systems Centered Theory to understanding giving and taking up authority
- Explore what happens when we go compliant and when we go defiant
- Weaken what stops us owning our own authority and cooperating with ourselves and others
- Shift from focusing on personal reactions to authority to curiosity about how the context triggers these reactions and the information held in them
Our hope is that we can co-create an open and fun climate that allows us to discover new learnings for ourselves and for our work.
