Do you ever leave meetings with a sense of failure or like you just didn’t get the results you were looking for? The reason might be that someone has exercised master suppression techniques.
In this presentation, we will explore how power sometimes manifests through master suppression techniques. You will find that these techniques are applied in all circumstances where there’s an imbalance of power and that we all use them. Sometimes you exercise them, consciously or unconsciously, sometimes you’re subject to them.
To gain knowledge about them will help you deal with situations more objectively and thereby reduce the negative effects these techniques can have on you. We will look at the most common techniques, what causes them to occur, how to identify them and most importantly how to dismantle them. We will also talk about how you can act to support people around you when they’re subject to these techniques. With this knowledge you will be inspired and ready to contribute to healthier professional and personal environments.
