At the beginning of September, we had the pleasure of hosting Anette Dielmann, who ran a workshop on “Communication in Organisational Development Processes” and offered individual supervision at our offices in Muizenberg. The workshop was attended by a little group of participants from various professional backgrounds. It was eye opening for us all as we looked at organisational communication through different lenses.

The theoretical backbone for the work we did was Transactional Analysis, especially Günther Mohr’s “Individual and Organisational TA for the 21st Century”. Anette worked with us on real life examples, which made the theory come alive and illustrated possible causes of communication difficulties in organisations. 

Looking into the development of solutions was fun, collaborative work, during which we all got some fresh new ideas from others. We could have gone on for a lot longer than the one day we had available. In our daily work with clients, we certainly will continue this train of thought.
