LEARNING FOR LEADERSHIP, INTERPERSONAL AND INTERGROUP RELATIONS.
RICE, A.K.
THE TAVISTOCK-LEICESTER JOINT RESIDENTIAL CONFERENCES (BASICALLY TRAINING LABORATORIES) WERE DESIGNED TO ENHANCE THE SENSITIVITY AND UNDERSTANDING OF PERSONS IN MANAGERIAL, PROFESSIONAL, OR ADMINISTRATIVE ROLES. MOST OF THESE CONFERENCES UTILIZED SMALL FACE-TO-FACE STUDY GROUPS, FORMAL LECTURES, INTERGROUP EXERCISES, LARGE GROUP EXERCISES, APPLICATION GROUPS, CLOSING OR REVIEW SESSIONS, AND A MIDCONFERENCE BREAK. IN ATTEMPTING TO STRUCTURE THEIR SITUATION AND ASSUME ROLES, PARTICIPANTS IN THE SMALL GROUPS COULD EXPERIENCE THE UNDERLYING FORCES INVOLVED IN LEADERSHIP SITUATIONS. AT THE SAME TIME, STAFF CONSULTANTS SOUGHT TO USE THEIR OWN FEELINGS TO SENSE WHAT WAS HAPPENING IN A GROUP, AND TRIED TO ANALYZE AND EXPRESS THEIR FEELINGS IN WAYS CONDUCIVE TO GREATER INSIGHT ON THE PART OF GROUP MEMBERS. MAJOR CONCLUSIONS WERE THAT THE FIRST AIM OF RESEARCH SHOULD BE TO DELINEATE TRAINING PROGRAM BOUNDARIES MORE PRECISELY AND TO MEASURE THE CONTROL OVER THEM, AND THAT SIMILAR PROGRAMS IN OTHER INSTITUTIONS SHOULD BE GIVEN AS DISTINCT COURSES, SUITABLY SAFEGUARDED AGAINST INTERFERENCE AND PREMATURE EVALUATION.
