Surfacing the Organisation-in-the-mind

Main Article Content

Sandra Wilson

Abstract

The theory of the organisation-in-the-mind suggests that organisations live within us, are a part of our identity and are bound up with our inner emotional life.  Connecting this theory to Berne’s thinking on the structure and dynamics of organisations and groups it is possible through interpretative phenomenological analysis to conduct research into how what we hold in the unconscious impacts on professional relationships and performance.  The outcome from research in this area is intended to highlight potential areas for development of competence in professional coaches.
