The Amsterdam Effect – Report from EAWOP’s 2nd WorkLab, 2013

Abstract

Sixteen participants attended the 2nd European Association of Work and Organizational Psychology WorkLab in Amsterdam, on the northern coast of the Netherlands, from 14-16 November, 2013. Participants were offered a structure with flexible boundaries for making sense of the practical elements of the WorkLab theme; Leadership and Conflict. Three speakers addressed issues around the tasks, processes and relationships of leadership, conflict and imbalances of power which they addressed in terms of these themes: social processes of conflict and of mediation interventions; emotional self-regulation and influencing as a leadership accomplishment; and conflicts emerging from insufficiently controlled ‘dark’ facets of personalities of some leaders. In sum, this was a great opportunity for psychologists to consider ways to reconfigure and recalibrate interventions about leadership and conflict at work.
