Author: Kets de Vries, Manfred F. R. ; Engellau, ElisabetINSEAD Area: Entrepreneurship and Family Enterprise In: Handbook of leadership theory and practice: an HBS centennial colloquium on advancing leadership - Nohria, Nitin;Khurana, Rakesh - 2010 - Book Language: EnglishDescription: p. 183-222.Type of document: INSEAD ChapterNote: Please ask us for this itemAbstract: In this article, we urge organizational leaders to recognize and plan for unconscious dynamics that have a significant impact on life in organizations. In dealing with these dynamics, we highlight some of the key concepts of what we call the “clinical paradigm”, the clinical lens we use to study behavior in organizations. In addition, we make some observations about leadership behavior and introduce an approach to leadership intervention that aims to be a transformational experience for executives. To understand the dynamics of individual change and transformation, we explore three triangular conceptual frameworks (taken from short-term dynamic psychotherapy): the mental life triangle, the conflict triangle, and the relationships triangle. We also explore some of the techniques that help create a tipping point for change.
