Coaching in Depth: The Organizational Role Analysis Approach
Susan Long, John Newton, Burkard Sievers
Karnac Books, Jan 1, 2006 - Psychology - 214 pages
Coaching In Depth introduces the reader to the management consultancy technique of Organizational Role Analysis (ORA); a technique with the immensely practical purpose of helping managers to stay "in role and on task". The ORA method is grounded in a process of consultation that derives from the conjunction of open systems theory and psychodynamic understandings of human behaviour. It enables the collaborative resolution of the mental and emotional tensions represented in the client's work role as he/she strives to manage the dynamics between their organization-in-the-mind and the organization-in-reality.
