On the Value of Group Relations Learning
"The conference is an extraordinary opportunity to tune into a frequency of group and organizational life that is always operating but virtually never accessible. The experiential learning, as well as the opportunity to reflect on and make sense of that learning with other participants was a rare treat. I came away with new, immediately applicable insights."
-- Robin Ely, Professor and Senior Associate Dean, Harvard Business School
"I got a hold of how 'unconscious baggage' held back my effectiveness. The conference freed me to work much more effectively and enjoy work that had previously exhausted me."
-- Dwight Jewson Ph.D., President, Strategic Frameworking
"I learned to position myself more 'firmly' on issues that I believe in and that I want to defend. Since the conference, I've been more assertive, knowing that running greater risks is the only way to stand up for what I believe in. It was certainly one of the most unique experiences I've had."
-- Middle School Principal
