Abstract

This chapter addresses the question of what makes Manfred Kets de Vries “tick?” What “red threads” run through his life? And how has his way of thinking contributed to the world?

To explore these questions, the authors use one of his Kets de Vries’ methodologies and put him, metaphorically, on the psychoanalyst’s couch.

It will be featured in the forthcoming book Enduring Thoughts of the Thinkers of Organizational Change by Palgrave Macmillan, 2017.

Keywords: Biography, Psychodynamic Approach, Management Science, Clinical Paradigm, Universal Motivational Drivers, Leadership Development, Group Coaching, Legacy
