Humble Appreciation - A Tribute to Edgar Schein

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

The late Ed Schein described the concept of ‘humble inquiry’ as ‘the fine art of drawing someone out, of asking questions to which you do not already know the answer, of building a relationship based on curiosity and interest in the other person’.  

Join us for an evening of appreciation and brief exploration of the significant influence of Edgar Schein, who passed away this year. 

We will share some of his contributions to the field of OD, and quickly move to spend time considering questions relating to your personal response or application of these principles, and the relevance to OD and consulting.  

Whether you are deeply familiar with Ed Schein’s work, or it is new to you, this is an opportunity to reflect on how the contributions of the past serve us now and into the future.
