The unique ability to analyse organisations through the combination of the thoughtful logic of the academic, with the deep insight of the practising psycho-analyst, has established Manfred Kets de Vries as one of Europe’s leading management authorities. With a different view to the much-studied subjects of leadership and the dynamics of individual and organisational change, he scrutinises the interface between international management and psychoanalysis.
Manfred’s understanding of psychoanalysis provides great value to those looking to grasp an understanding of the internal and social dynamics; the unconscious and invisible processes that influence the behaviour of individuals and organisations. He explores and explains the essence of leadership and the characteristics of high-performance organisations to teach executives how to become better and more effective leaders.
A charismatic and humorous speaker, Manfred’s thought provoking keynote addresses use extensive examples from his work with major corporations to make his speeches enjoyable, tangible and easy to learn from. He also provides tailored workshops to develop participants effectiveness in their leadership roles.
