    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!

    Become a Project Super Hero with Terry Schmidt


    All important goals are accomplished through projects, and every professional manages projects, whether they have the title or not. To be effective, we need more nimble, common-sense project planning and action tools to sharpen strategy, clarify success measures, get stakeholders on board early, reduce risk in advance, and ensure our hard work achieves a goal.

    To thrive we must develop “strategic superpowers”, defined as the mindset and skillset to systematically turn promising ideas and fuzzy goals into successful projects.

    Terry Schmidt has identified four cornerstone questions and developed an organizing framework to rapidly tackle issues of any type.  Use this framework to accomplish results faster by drawing on your internal “Project Super Hero powers.”

    In this fast-paced session, you’ll learn specific techniques and a step-by-step process to successfully tackle problems, projects, issues, and opportunities of all types.

    About Your Presenter

    Terry Schmidt has earned an international reputation as a management consultant, strategic thinker, and project management expert, with four decades experience assisting corporations, governments, and research institutions in 42 countries worldwide.

    His latest book Strategic Project Management Made Simple was named one of the top 8 project management books on the market. Terry holds a BS engineering degree from UW and an MBA from Harvard.

    He is the president of ManagementPro.com.  Terry’s diverse clients include Apple, eBay, Symantec, DIRECTV, Blizzard Entertainment, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, Sony Electronics, Disney, Lawrence Livermore and Los Alamos National Labs, Nokia, the US State Department and the Bank of Thailand.

    Implementation Competency - Socio-Tech components to successful implementation


    Project managers are rarely trained in systems theory related to work and often miss key elements around the people dimension of project management. Those elements are what one may call the socio-technical aspects of a proj­ect. Socio-technical includes how to 1) link people together who work in different departments (for some businesses that could mean different cities or even countries) and 2) gain clarity of task components, decision making, and sponsorship (as defined in Chris's first book, Strategic Organizational Alignment). Project managers often create timelines with little interaction with the people who will complete the tasks. They rarely have the assigned resources interact using a group process to analyze potential pitfalls and create actions to overcome them.

    Additionally, effective project managers must be experts at noticing and managing conflict moments. They must be self-aware and disciplined enough to not slip into their typical conflict pattern or slide into victim behavior.

    Participants must bring a current project or initiative to the training to analyze and build strategies for success.  

    At the end of the presentation, the participants will: 

    • Learn core socio-technical components of any project or initiative.
    • Recognize and use Socio-technical components.
    • Analyze a current project or initiative and develop strategies to increase implementation success.

    This training is limited to 20 participants. Sign up now to ensure your spot!

    Enabling Individuals and Organizations to Soar!


    Organizations continue to talk about how important talent is to their success and the need for inclusion, but many organizations and their leaders often don’t know HOW to leverage that talent and create a work environment that enables all people to be their best and do their best work.

    Inclusion is the HOW for organizational success. It is HOW:

    • Individuals can bring their full selves to the workplace and feel valued, seen, and respected for who they are.
    • Teams can interact more effectively to drive greater collaboration and innovation.
    • An organization aligns its culture with its strategies for higher operational performance.
    • The organization’s culture makes it safe enough for people to bring their different ideas, perspectives, and talents so they can soar.

    Bringing more than 40 years of experience in creating and implementing successful large systems change strategies, Fred Miller and Judith Katz will explore the fundamentals of their system change efforts and how they have used Inclusion as the HOW® for organization transformation.

    Fred & Judith will discuss case examples from their work with clients, as well as a first look into our new book, Safe Enough to Soar, exploring the four levels of interaction safety.

    About Your Presenters

    Frederick A. Miller and Judith H. Katz

    For more than 30 years, Fred and Judith have been working individually and together to transform organizations and the ways people interact with one another within them.

    They started their business partnership in 1985, Judith coming from faculty positions at the University of Oklahoma and San Diego State, and Fred from management positions at Connecticut General Life Insurance Company. It was a major turning point in both their lives.

    As CEO and Executive Vice President (respectively) for The Kaleel Jamison Consulting Group, Inc.—one of Consulting magazine’s Seven Small Jewels in 2010—they have partnered with Fortune 100 and other companies, universities, governmental agencies, municipalities, and non-profit organizations to create organizations in which the level of interaction safety elevates the quality of interactions, leverages people’s differences, and transforms workplaces into growth-and-learning environments where people’s talents are unleashed, results are accelerated, and productivity soars.

    Through their thought leadership and practical approaches for changing workplaces, they have brought their unique perspective, passion, and energy to make a difference in organizations that few can match.

    Together they have also co-authored:

    • Safe Enough to Soar: Accelerating Trust, Inclusion and Collaboration in the Workplace (2018)
    • Opening Door to Teamwork and Collaboration: 4 Keys That Change Everything (2013)
    • Be BIG: Step Up, Step Out, Be Bold (2008)
    • The Inclusion Breakthrough: Unleashing the Real Power of Diversity (2002)

    Judith and Fred have each been honored with several of their field’s most distinguished awards. In 2007, Profiles in Diversity Journal named them two of 40 Pioneers of Diversity, and in 2012, they were each honored as Legends of Diversity by the International Society of Diversity and Inclusion Professionals. Among other awards, Fred has received the Lifetime Achievement Award and Service to the Network Awards presented by the Organization Development Network (ODN), and Winds of Change Award from The Forum on Workplace Inclusion; and Judith has received ODN’s Lifetime Achievement Award, Outstanding Achievement in Global Work Award and Communicating OD Knowledge along with the Cultural Competency Award from DTUI. Fred has served on Ben and Jerry’s and Day & Zimmermann’s Corporate Boards and Judith is currently a member of the Fielding Graduate University Board of Trustees.

    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!

    Culture Change in Local Government:  A Client Perspective


    In 2013, in response to an unfavorable employee survey and the Mayor’s initiative to increase respect across all City Departments, the Public Works Division of the City of Kent embarked on an employee generated initiative to increase their voice in the workplace. With support from the top and a consulting resource, a core group built a change initiative that, 5 years later, continues to receive high marks from employees, management and the City Council for its hands on approach at engaging employees in policies and practices that optimize retention, productivity, engagement, professional development and citizen appreciation. The initiative has built a cadre of internal facilitators and is being used as a workplace transformation model across the City. 

    Along with their external consultant, a few representatives from the Steering Committee for “Powered by Public Works” will share their story about what they have accomplished, how they got there, and what it takes to make it sustainable. They will share the difference it has made to them, to their departments and to the citizens they serve. And they will engage with the PNODN audience to discuss ideas for how to take their new workplace culture to the next level.  Please join us to hear about this culture change success!

    Barry Oshry - From Seeing the Possibilities of Organization to Seeing the Possibilities of Culture - Live Via Zoom


    Barry Oshry, in a Live session on Zoom, traces the arc of his work over the past four decades from his fundamental work with organizations to his most recent work focused on the meeting of disparate cultures.

    “Underlying all my work has been the following: We humans are the most social of social creatures, members of the widest variety of social systems. Yet, we are blind to how the structure and processes of these systems shape our consciousness. And that blindness is costly to ourselves, our relationships, and our systems.  My work with organizational life and, more recently with the meeting of cultures, has been to transform system blindness into system sight as a means of opening up new creative and productive possibilities.”

    About Your Presenter

    Barry is a thought leader in the workings of human systems and a pioneer in the development of high-impact experiential education programs. His six-day Power Lab has provided transformative experiences for organizational and institutional leaders from across the globe, and has been the subject of the prize-winning documentary, Power Lab: Living in New Hope.

    He is also the developer of the Organization Workshop and the When Cultures Meet Workshop. Barry’s books – among them The Possibilities of Organization, Seeing Systems, Leading Systems, The Systems Letter, and, most recently, Context Context Context - have provided fundamental insights into social system life. .

    Special ODN Lifetime Achievement Award Presenter -

    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.’
