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