Workshop on Strategic reflexivity
In this workshop Christine and Carsten introduces a new turn in the development of a systemic approach to organizations. By elaborating and connecting the idea of relational reflexivity to an overall strategic approach to leading through dialogue, they argue that, managers and leaders should look beyond the local issues, if they are to create organizations that can handle complexity and change in a more competent way.
The philosophical stance is a way of being in the world: a way of talking with, acting with, responding with and thinking with the people we meet in our professional practices. The stance is based on the assumptions of collaborative relationships and dialogical conversations as relational and generative, and becomes the orientation, attitude and process in which mutual transforming occurs rather than a technique.
Harlene Anderson is a leader in the development of a postmodern collaborative-conversational approach to psychotherapy and has applied her approach to organizations, education, research and consultation.
