Samspill & Ledelse/ Learning Individual and Group Psychology-in-Interaction

       The Human Resources Development (HRD) program Learning Leadership-in-Interaction; Applied Organizational Psychology (Samspill & Ledelse: anvendt organisasjonspsykologi) is a Norwegian HRD innovation based on a simple idea: organizations and their employees will profit by learning the art and science of applied organizational psychology. In the course of the program, group members are given psychological exercises and scholarly lectures (spanning from social psychology to depth psychology) choreographed into a continuous learning activity. The program runs over 5 modules, 20 non-residential days in total. It was originated by Paul Moxnes at the Dept. of Psychology, University of Oslo in the late 1980s; refined and further developed by Moxnes and colleagues at BI Norwegian Business School 1992 - 2011, updated and revised by Moxnes and colleagues at AFF at the Norwegian School of Economics (NHH) 2012 - 2017. The program is highly evaluated by participants. More than 5 thousand managers have attended (of a manager population in Norway of about 210 thousand, Statistics Norway, 2016). The program runs in Norwegian. 

It is hypothesized that the program's educational success lies in our effort to make the individual process isomorphic with the development stages in a typical hero fairy tale (staging a qualifying test, a main test and a glorifying/confirming test), and to arouse much of the same feelings that folk tales produce (excitement, surprise and curiosity). The didactic objective of the program is to align research-based psychological theories with the participants' own job-knowledge and life-experience.

Continuous and detailed program-evaluation have been an integrated effort since program start in 1992. Each exercise, lecture, module and the program as a whole are evaluated by the participants filling out a short standard evaluating form at the end of each module. This has proven to be a simple and efficient tool for program-development and refinement. A broad evaluation was done by the Department of Education, University of Oslo in 2003, where former participants evaluated the program in regard to other programs attended (Lahn, 2004, unpublished; referred in Moxnes, 2006, p. 16). Results strongly suggest that the program 1) conveys a practical knowledge of normal psychological processes that surpasses all other leadership development programs attended, 2) has an effect of continuous learning that lasts years after termination of the program, and, most important, 3) has more positive influences upon transfer of training into participants' back-home situations than any other leadership development programs attended. A full version of the program is offered by Norway's two leading business schools: BI Norwegian Business School, and AFF at the Norwegian School of Economics (NHH). Both programs (see below) run in Norwegian.
