About the Workshop

Attachment Theory has been widely researched and evaluated over the years as related to childhood development. Recently, there has been a renewed interest in its application for adults. When thinking about workplace dynamics, attachment theory is a helpful lens to view the employee and supervisory relationship. Participants of this workshop will gain a clear sense of how one’s own attachment style impacts their leadership style and how it translates to team dynamics.

This is a two part workshop which dives into adult attachment theory and the ways in which it manifests in the workplace. Part one will focus on adult attachment theory, attachment styles and general implications on adulthood relationships. Part two builds upon part one and links adult attachment style implications with considerations for workplace relationships, power dynamics, team dynamics and staff retention. Participants in the workshop will:

  • Upon completing the workshop, participants will be able to:
  • Understand how attachment styles impact adult relationships both socially and professionally.
  • Identify personal attachment style and how it impacts your leadership style
  • Determine ways to apply attachment theory learnings to your own workplace performance.
