Sociometrist and Executive Coach Diana Jones' Podcasts on leadership
Diana Jones' website offers three podcasts of interest to those in organizations: (1) Executive presence - Working with Emotions in Organizations; (2) Leading in Tough Situations; and (3) Navigating Emotions at Work. Her website is www.diana-jones.com.
Diana is from Wellington, New Zealand and is certified as a sociometrist by the Australian and Aotearoa New Zealand Psychodrama Association (AANZPA). She has been a member of the Executive Board of AANZPA for a number of years.

The website also offers an impressive list of articles written from the perspective of successful interventions based on improving peer relationships rather than top down or bottom up connections at work. Of specific interest to sociometrists is a paper written in 2006 comparing  sociometry and social network analysis. To go directly here is the link:

The Sociometric Cycle
The sociometric cycle is a model which may be used by a group or the group's leaders to track the position the various members of a group are holding in a given moment in relation to a task or an event. This position is one held individually and also impacts the group members. The model was developed in 1986 by Ann E. Hale. It was developed within the context of John Mosher's The Healing Circle: Myths, Ritual and Therapy (1985).  In the 28 years of its existence practitioners of psychodrama and sociometry have developed the model and created many useful and exciting ways to use it in action,  for journaling, for processing, etc.  

The Sociometric cycle is described in Ann Hale's most recent book Three Cyclical Models which Enhance Consciousness of Interpersonal Connection (2012).


Three Cyclical Models by Ann E. Hale available now
Ann Hale's new monograph, Three Cyclical Models which Enhance Consciousness of Interpersonal Connection is now available for sale.  The monograph (57 pages) includes the origins, design, and ways each cycle may be used in action.

The Appendices include signage for use in action explorations of each cycle; a section on the three cycles and Moreno's Canon of Creativity; a section on the holographic nature of the cycles, and an update on consciousness related to research on the brain.
