    An Overlooked Element in OD: A Results Focus with Mary Lippitt


    OD initiatives have traditionally focused on improving personal style, competencies, and collaboration. It is time to expand our practices to support the ability to deliver desired results. This session presents a groundbreaking situational framework using six results-oriented lenses that enable leaders to make the right call at the right time for the right results. If we keep doing what we have always done, we will get what we have always gotten, and that is not enough. In our dynamic environment, we cannot let our clients rely on habit and past practice.

    During this session, participants will assess a current goal, explore how checklists improve situational insight and recognize the impact of situational mindsets on change readiness.

    OD Toolkit Series - What to look for in Groups: The Power of Group Process with Robert Crosby


    Does anyone disagree that adolescents are often more influenced by their peers than by their parents? The great Kurt Lewin nailed this. There are (mostly) unconscious group norms guiding the behavior of anyone in a gang or a work group. Low producing employees become higher producing when they are moved to a high producing group. Conversely, high producers become less productive when moved to a low producing group.

    How do I help clients identify these dynamics, and more importantly, how are these shifted.

    The ability to understand norms separates a professional consultant from an amateur.

    Organization Development was built on ‘group development’ which was understood and written about prior to the evolution of OD. Yet in recent years that reality has been lost in the ever present pull to find the next best theory. Join ODN Lifetime Achievement Award winner and Seattle resident Robert Crosby, assisted by the President of Board of PNODN Chris Crosby, as he leads you in a session to help identify central elements of all groups and simple ways to utilize these elements to impart positive change.

    Gordon W. Allport in his forward to Kurt Lewin’s (1948) “Resolving Social Conflicts” wrote, “The unifying theme is unmistakable: the group to which an individual belongs is the ground for his perceptions, his feelings, and his actions. Most psychologists are so preoccupied with the salient features of the individual's mental life that they are prone to forget it is the ground of the social group that gives to the individual his figured character.”

    Come join us in this experiential training as we explore group process and how to use yourself to positively impact any group.

    At the end of the experience, the participants will: 

    • Recognize common patterns in groups.
    • See the clear connection between turnover, poor safety, absenteeism, low morale, quality issues, and unproductive norms. 
    • Develop strategies to change group norms towards positive ends including how to improve the metrics in the above categories.
    • Understand how your behavior impacts any group you are consulting.

    This training is limited to 12 participants. Sign up now to ensure your spot!

    Self-Mastery for Internal and External Change Artists:  The Shadow Knows with Dr. John Scherer

    Special ODN Lifetime Achievement Award Presenter -

    John has decided to fly to Seattle all the way from Poland!

    Participants please bring a pen and paper to write on, thanks! 

    Some OD/OE Consultants and Coaches know a great deal—and even have highly-developed  skills—but are not as effective as they could be.  Why?  Because, regardless of the skills and theories you have mastered, they all get translated through who you ARE as you put them into practice.  Lao Tzu said it this way in 600 BCE:

    Those who know much may be wise, but those who know themselves are even wiser. Those who are master over many may be powerful, but those who are mastering themselves are more powerful still.

    In this intensive 90 minute experience, John Scherer, a 40-year OD/OE veteran and one of America’s leading innovators in personal and professional development, will introduce you to one simple but profound principle that will help you master yourself and deepen your practice.  You will find:

    • Greater awareness of what runs you—your 'Auto Pilot' or 'Adaptive Routine' that holds you back.
    • What your ‘Shadow' has to contribute to your effectiveness as a Coach or Consultant

    John Scherer has been a thought leader in OD since 1968, combining his background as a Gestalt therapist with his natural abilities as a group and large scale change facilitator. His clients have included business executives and their organizations from around the world, including GTE, Boeing, Siemens, van Melle, The Government of Canada, and many others, especially in Central/Eastern Europe where he has been based since 2008. He was co-creator in 1973 of the first truly competency-based graduate program in applied behavioral science (LIOS) and is a pioneer in the movement that shares the name of his 1993 book, Work and the Human Spirit. His 2008 book, Five Questions that Change Everything, has been called ’The best business self-help book ever written.' Based now in Warsaw, Poland, he has published numerous articles in the areas of leadership, change and conflict. In 2012 John was named to Steven Covey’s list of America's Top 100 Personal/Leadership Development Thought Leaders, and in 2016 John was the recipient of ODN’s Lifetime Achievement Award. His 2010 presentation to his Alma Mater, Roanoke College, was selected by NPR for their list of ’The Best 100 Commencement Addresses. Ever.’

    OD Toolkit Series - The Next Generation of Generational Thinking


    Organizations are focusing on generational differences to avoid conflict, attract and retain the next generation of the workforce.  However, research demonstrates stereotyping generations may actually be hurting, not helping, multi-generational work groups.   This session focuses on re-framing generation generational differences as a diversity and inclusion issue by applying a systemic approach and lens to understand generational shifts.  The attendees can participate in an experiential workshop designed to apply the information into their own work groups and organizations.  At the end of the presentation, the participants will: 

    • Understand the current approach to generational conflict, attraction and retaining the next generation of the workforce and the impact on organizations based on current research.
    • Identify the system shift and impact of past generations on current work environments to predict the needs of the current and future generations.
    • Leave with ideas on how to mobilize stakeholder groups to enrich diversity and inclusion programs as well as leadership development strategies for the next generation.

    This training is limited to 25 participants. Sign up now to ensure your spot!

    Covert Processes: Dealing with the Hidden Barriers to Organizational Change with Bob Marshak


    Special ODN Lifetime Achievement Award Presenter -

    Bob will do this session live via zoom meeting from his home in Florida.

    In this session you will learn about The Covert Processes Model™ and the five hidden dimensions that impact organizational change including: organizational politics, inspirations, emotions, mindsets, and psychodynamics. All of these hidden processes limit choice, block creativity, and trap individuals, groups and organizations in repetitive and often self-defeating behavior patterns. The evening’s session will bring together the spoken and the unspoken, the literal and the symbolic, and the conscious and the unconscious in order to help you  learn how to hear what is not said, see what is not present, and feel what is not expressed. The evening will include discussion of the basic keys and approaches needed to “put things on-the-table” for open engagement. Additional tips and ethical considerations will also be discussed. Please come with a back-home case in mind for reflection and application of the ideas.

    Dr. Robert J. Marshak is Distinguished Scholar in Residence Emeritus at American University in Washington, DC and has consulted to corporations and government agencies for more than 40 years. Bob is widely recognized for his pioneering work on covert processes and as a co-creator of Dialogic OD.  He is the author or co-editor of three books including Covert Processes at Work: Managing the Five Hidden Dimensions of Organizational Change (2006) and more than 100 book chapters and articles addressing organizational consulting and change. Among his many honors and awards, he received the Organization Development Network’s Lifetime Achievement Award and the Distinguished Educator Award from the Organization Development and Change Division of the Academy of Management.

    Communities of Practice - Organization Development Practitioners


    This community of practice is specifically for organization development practitioners. We loosely define that to mean anyone who is internal or external and is regularly part of helping to manage or drive change. 

    The Pacific Northwest Organization Development Network (PNODN) is coordinating Communities of Practice for OD professionals. The purpose of this group is to offer opportunities for OD professionals or anyone leading projects or change initiatives in the greater business community to come together with like-minded practitioners to consult with each other, learn socio-technical components of change, share best practices, and develop through collaboration.

    The initial meeting will be a four-hour session to build the community of practice including -
    • Joining
    • Member agreements
    • Learn case study presentation frame
    • Learn socio-technical aspects
    • Establish the 6 month calendar
    • Establishing the next few months of case study presenters
    The groups will continue for six months.  After the initial four-hour meeting, each meeting will be two hours.  Groups will be facilitated by a PNODN Board member.

    Communities of practice are limited to 10 participants. Sign up now to ensure your spot!
