Productive Workplaces

This lecture is part of the conference Chaos and Change in Organizational Life. Co-sponsored by the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago and the NTL (National Training Laboratories) Institute, this conference explores the contributions Jungian psychology can make to understanding the depth and complexity of organizational life in times of change and the contributions that the applied behavioral sciences can make when Jungian perspectives are incorporated.

The chaotic and confused nature of the process of change is the prime material from which productive workplaces are built. This conference offers a clearer understanding of how coming to terms with the power of the unconscious can bring dignity and meaning to workplaces and empower people who work in them to gain a greater knowledge of the Self and organizational issues of productivity, creativity, and quality.

The conference includes the following lectures:

  1. A Primer on Jungian Psychology - Thomas Patrick Lavin
  2. A Primer on Organization Development - Fred Nader
  3. Productive Workplaces - Marvin Weisbord
  4. Chaos and Change - James Hall
  5. Organizational Life as Spiritual Practice - Murray Stein
