The Austrian Society for Group Dynamics and Organisational Consulting (ÖGGO) is an association of professional trainers and consultants who work as experts on social processes in groups, with organizations and in society.
The aim of ÖGGO is to promote group dynamics and organisational consulting in all areas of society. Covering a wide variety of professional fields, our members help people to develop the ability to better understand relationships in social structures (such as groups, organizations or even in society) and to be able to act accordingly, depending on their role. Moreover, working on a scientific basis is very important to us.
The group dynamic Training Group
“T-Group” is a training format in which participants can observe and experience the development of a group from the initial meeting right through to the end. The participants, who know very little or ideally nothing about each other from previous life contexts, form groups of 8-12 people, together with a trainer. These groups consistently reflect and focus on themselves in several sessions over the course of a week. Using their own example, they examine how groups develop, which processes can be observed, what kind of structures emerge, which roles solidify and dissolve again, and much more.

What is group dynamics?
Groups can be found wherever several people come together and interact over longer periods of time. Groups can arise in the private sphere (e.g.. groups of friends, round tables, in many sporting activities), as well as in organizations (e.g. committees, departments, teams, etc.). Groups are social constellations of manageable size, in which every participant can connect with everyone else. Some groups meet regularly, others at longer intervals. Some need more time to develop, others less. The participants see themselves as “members” of the group, whereby a boundary is drawn with other people and social units, and a kind of common “group identity” becomes recognizable: a “we” that is different from “the others”.
