GIO Ongoing Development Groups

An ongoing series of residential workshops covering key challenges facing organisational leaders and the consultants who support them. The first year of this program was completed in 2005, and the original group continues to operate. This group is not seeking new member at this stage.
A second group was formed in 2010 and meets for a three day residential workshop once a year. This group is currently open to new members. Attendance at this program is by invitation and the program is only available to people who have worked with us before. Each group is limited to a maximum of eight people.

 The format of the two groups is one three-day residential workshop for each group every 12 months. Previously we have gathered in Sydney, the Snowy Mountains, Kangaroo Valley, the Blue Mountains, Wellington, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. Upcoming workshops are planned for Wellington, the north coast of NSW and Morocco.


Program Outline

 This program brings groups together to explore, through regular contact, the practical application of a Gestalt approach to business and organisational issues. It draws on the ongoing programs that we’ve run for many years in Australia and the UK. 
The work is highly experiential, practical, experimental and improvisational. Naturally what we work on in each module is drawn from what’s happening in the group and the interests of the participants. The theme for each module is developed beforehand in consultation with the participants, and further shaped by the ”in-the-moment” interest of the group and what emerges as we work together.


 Program costs

The fee for any new groups will be dependent on the module format and venue; as a guide, based on the format of the current open group, the fee for each workshop, including meals is $1,520 at the personal rate and $2,200 at the corporate rate. We rely on each participant to determine their applicable rate. (As always, we invite anyone with a limited training budget to talk to us about rates and payment options.) Accommodation costs are separate and paid directly by participants. We aim to work in venues with reasonably priced accommodation.
