University of Minnesota Alumni Association Presents

Necessary Wisdom: Polarity Dynamics in Ourselves and in the Workplace

3/7/18, 12:00 PM

About this event

Time is listed in CST.

This webinar will introduce listeners to the reality of dynamic polarities and their manifestations in ourselves, in interpersonal relationships, and organizational situations. Recognizing and bridging relevant pairs of opposites, transient and enduring, leads to reduced conflicts and greater personal and professional effectiveness. Listeners will immediately start to recognize how we naturally, and often unconsciously, privilege one pole over its linked opposite and the one-sided complications and limitations that creates.


Peter Freeman, EdD. has over twenty-eight years experience as a Jungian psychotherapist, coach, and mediator; educator and trainer; and organization development consultant to leaders and teams. He helps individuals and teams identify, bridge, and integrate the often contradictory and conflicting aspects within themselves, their interpersonal relationships, and their team processes. In particular, as a Jungian practitioner he has a particular interest in enduring polarities that need to be managed and harnessed for increased effectiveness.

He holds masters degrees in business administration (MBA) and social work (MSW), and a doctorate in organization learning and development (Ed.D.). He received his Minnesota Licensed Independent Clinical Social Work (LICSW) licensure in 1992. He currently provides coaching, counseling and team development services through his private practice in St. Paul.

Dr. Steve Manderscheid and Peter co-authored “Managing Polarity, Paradox, and Dilemma during Leader Transition” published in the European Journal of Training and Development and selected as a Highly Commended Award Winner at the Literati Network Awards for Excellence 2013.
