Leadership: Psychological, Political and Personal Perspectives (Seminar und Workshop)

11. Oktober 2014 - 15:00 Uhr
Ev. Kirchenforum (Parochialkirche), Klosterstraße 66, 10179 Berlin
ReferentIn: Prof. Andrew Samuels (London)

Prof. Samuels schreibt uns dazu:
»Leadership is a key political topic. But leadership is also a deeply psychological matter on the collective level. Moreover, there are many related personal questions that arise in connection with authority, autonomy, and taking responsibility. We will explore people’s ‘political memories’ of leaders and then review in a more systematic manner some models of leadership. The whole question of the possibilities and limitations of leadership on a personal level – making a difference, speaking out, stepping forward – will also be explored. Though the focus is contemporary, issues that still affect the Jungian community concerning Jung’s views on leaders and the led will undoubtedly be present in the atmosphere.

The seminar/workshop is open to all psychotherapists, psychologists, academics, journalists, and interested citizens. Do not worry if you are not confident in speaking in English; there will be translation and some work will take place in German.«

Andrew Samuels betont weiter, es gehe ihm bei »Leadership/Führung« um ein psychologisches und politisches Konzept, nicht um Parteipolitik. Der Ort der Arbeit im Workshop sei in und zwischen den Individuen unter Anwesenheit eines Analytikers.

Prof. Samuels hat mit den Größen der Weltpolitik gearbeitet und verfügt über »amazing experiences«, wie er sagt, über die er sprechen, aber nicht schreiben könne. Dr. Joerg Rasche wird die wesentlichen Thesen Andrew Samuels ins Deutsche übersetzen.

Da dieses Seminar den Auftakt zu unserem neuen Studienjahr bildet, laden wir in der Pause und am Schluss wie in den vergangenen Jahren zu einem Umtrunk mit Imbiss ein.
