Meeting Theme and Significant Issues:
Conceptions of leadership and propositions about what good
leadership entails are enduring topics within systems of human
relations. The goal of the 12th Scientific Meeting of the AK
Rice Institute is to study and discuss the function of leadership
in group and organizational life and the role of the leader in a
complex global society.
The Meeting will explore these issues in the context of the
Institute's missions and tasks:
to extend experiential group conference learning to subgroups of society
that hold widely disparate views of what constitutes leadership....
to create additional models for understanding the roles of self in relation
to others....
to develop techniques of consultation that contribute to the creation of
effective and
rewarding work environments....
to discover ways in which the interpretive stance can contribute to the
betterment of
our communities and the world at large.

A.K. Rice Institute members and other persons interested in the study of
leadership, community,
organizational and group life are invited to participate.


The A.K. Rice Institute was established in 1970 as a non-profit educational
Its mission is to further the study of groups and organizations using the
principles and
traditions developed at the Centre for Applied Social Research of
the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations in London, England.
Using evolving theories of dynamic psychology and open systems,
the Institute aims to promote the understanding of group and
organizational processes which influence work within
institutions. Committed to the belief that this learning is best
accomplished experientially, the A.K. Rice Institute sponsors

meeting, organizational consultation, and training workshops. It
