Creating identity laboratories to enable executive change and transformation

Author: Kets de Vries, Manfred F. R. ; Korotov, KonstantinINSEAD Area: Entrepreneurship and Family Enterprise Series: Working Paper ; 2006/36/EFE Publisher: Fontainebleau : INSEAD, 2006.Language: EnglishDescription: 14 p.Type of document: INSEAD Working Paper Online Access: Click here Abstract: This article concerns the design of transformational executive programs. To understand what happens in the transformational process, three triangular conceptual frameworks (taken from short-term dynamic psychotherapy) are presented: the mental life triangle, the conflict triangle, and the relationships triangle. The first shows that cognitive and emotional processes need to be taken into consideration to create changes in behavior. The second describes how psychic conflict arises from unacceptable feelings or thoughts that prompt anxiety and defensive reactions. The relationships triangle explains how an individual's childhood experiences create patterns of response that are repeated throughout life. Five major challenges in program design are also examined: the criteria for selecting participants; identifying the focal problem on which participants need to work; the creation of a safe transitional space that enables the change process; how to use the group dynamic to arrive at internalization of the change process; and the educational implications for faculty, facilitators, and coaches.
