The fourth Gestalt-seminar will be held in Manila from March 21 to 23, and will focus on “Managing Yourself, Others and Company Structures.” The workshop is part of a continuing educational program and comes as an independent job competence training.

Management and leadership basics are mostly grounded on personal competence; in order to be a good manager of people, you must know how to manage yourself. This seminar utilizes humanistic psychology to assist participants in developing personal and professional competence.

Participants will also examine the interpersonal roles within a job, as well as their own personal way of handling institutional conflicts or intercultural differences. Tools will be used to diagnose social situations, teach participants to stay while handling difficult situations, make choices when needed, and think on their feet.

This workshop is a joint venture of the Gestalt Institute Manila, Mantalou International Institute, UP Diliman, and Profiles Asia Pacific. The workshop will be held March 21 to 23. The workshop fee is PHP9,500 and doesn’t include VAT tax.
