Abstract

As part of our Centenary webinar series, organisational consultant Francesca Cardona led a panel discussion on the relevance of the Tavistock model of consulting in the context of a crisis, particularly focusing on the COVID-19 pandemic. With Vega Roberts, Ben Neal and Robyn Vesey. Ben Neal looked at the implications of a psychoanalytic perspective on work during the COVID-19 crisis. He looked at the impact on people being forced to inhabit and work in unfamiliar digital spaces, the erosion of the boundary between personal and professional roles, and the loss of informal and liminal spaces. Robyn Vesey shared some of her experiences working with leaders managing services, which like many have had to respond to the pandemic. She outlined the challenges they had to respond to, how they used consultancy sessions and how containment was a central part of this work.
