    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.

    OD Toolkit Series - Adaptive Leadership for Leading Change


    Over 70-90% of change efforts fail in achieving their stated goals. Today’s problems are highly complex and require proper diagnosis and intervention. The adaptive leadership framework has become one of the most effective approaches for leading change over the last 25 years. This workshop provides access to some of the key concepts in the adaptive leadership framework and allows the participants to apply these concepts to their organizational challenges.

    Goals

    This workshop will:

    • Guide participants to apply what they have learned about leadership
    • Offer opportunities for leaders to evaluate their OD approach as it relates to adaptive leadership.
    • As adaptive leadership requires an extremely high level of skills and training, the workshop will point toward resources for ongoing learning, reflection, and action to support participants' continued growth as leaders of change.
    • Provide tools for participants to increase chance of success in change efforts.

    Learning Objectives

    Participants will:

    • Become minimally familiar with adaptive leadership concepts.
    • Understand the complexities involved in change and why change efforts fail.
    • Explore adaptive leadership using a variety of metaphors and perspectives.
    • Understand how to create a culture that enables change.
    • Create a plan for application in your own organization.
    • Determine when you need help.

    This training is limited to 24 participants. Sign up now to ensure your spot!

    Dr. Raei has consulted on strategic planning; co-facilitated a workshop on trust; and facilitated several workshops on immunity to change as well as several gatherings, meetings, retreats, and team building exercises for a variety of clients.

    He served as programming chair for the Pacific Northwest Organizational Development Network where he developed many new programs. We are honored to have him back conducting a training.

    Prior to this, he worked in the marketing of dairy products in the Jordanian market for several years where he also led the efforts for ISO 9000 quality management certification. Additionally, he represented the dairy and food industries on several national standards committees (in Jordan). Afterward, Mohammed represented several multinational, industrial goods companies in the Middle Eastern.

    He recently completed a Ph.D. dissertation titled “Development and Validation of the Adaptive Leadership with Authority Scale.” He has a Master’s degree in Management and Leadership from Antioch University, and has a B.Sc degree in Industrial Engineering from NEU.

    Hey Eastsiders! Join us for Coffee and Mini-Practicum with David C. Wigglesworth, Ph.D. and Philip S. Heller, Ph.D.

    Come join us for a Mini-Practicum. Our intention is to create a process for peers to share current situations confidentially in support of each other’s continued learning and development. We are most interested in learning with colleagues who are working in a development capacity (at a systems, team, or coaching level, internal or external), with a shared value for learning in relationship and who bring a common set of facilitative skills.

    Our focus is on: What are the situations or events that matter most to me right now? What stirs me these days?* Our process will be to follow best-practice team development and mutual coaching via strength-based feedback and here and now debriefs.

    *Questions by John Runyon, used with permission.

    This session has limited space,  therefore maximum enrollment is 5.

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

    Special ODN Lifetime Achievement Award Presenter -

    John will do this session live via zoom meeting from his home in Poland.

    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 - Practical Brainstorming Sequence


    Many practitioners think of brainstorming as the act of generating ideas. The generation phase is but one step in an effective brainstorm sequence and in fact can pose a challenge if the practitioner does not use a structured approach. Come learn a complete sequence of brainstorming that is highly structured an applicable to all workplaces. The sequence is practical and powerful and, once learned, can be used in full or in part on an ad hoc basis to help any group quickly manage a list of items. If you have ever 1) seen a group generate a list of prob­lems, yet fail to reduce them to a manageable list of actions, 2) seen a group use votes rather than logic to determine their course of action, 3) heard a leader say, “Well it looks like we are all in agreement that X is the course of action” without really knowing the differing beliefs in the group, and found yourself frustrated and not sure what to do, then the following sequence is what you need. It provides simple ways to resolve such dilemmas.

    By learning this sequence of brainstorming, you can quickly reduce lists, balance votes with constructive conversations and clear decision making, and get rapid feedback on what options the different members of the group think are the most critical.

    At the end of the presentation, the participants will: 

    • Lead any group through a highly structured sequence that includes distinct steps and ground rules to ensure a vetted list of actions.
    • Identify and direct any group that gets stuck at any stage while working with a large list of items.
    • Sequence can be used in part or in whole depending on your situation. 

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

    Turning Employee Surveys into Morale Boosting Events


    Many workplaces conduct an annual employee survey. Such surveys can increase or decrease morale. Decreases often happen rapidly. This training will provide you with a process that ensures maximum positive benefit from any survey. Most survey companies are led by statistics experts rather than Applied Behavioral Scientists (ABS). There is a core ABS process that is simple and  repeatable which practitioners can use to turn survey data into action.

    Participants will discover how to use surveys in a way that does not demoralize the organization and instead does the opposite while addressing real work place issues

    At the end of the presentation, the participants will: 

    • Learn an 11 step process to translate any survey data into action.
    • Raise awareness of common traps when using surveys.
    • Utilize a 12 question workplace questionnaire.

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

    What HR doesn’t get about OD with Eric Svaren


    Students of organization development (OD) are “sold a bill of goods.” They are taught methods and cases involving transformational change, which is brought about by cutting-edge OD practices—such as appreciative inquiry, future search, Theory U, and deliberately developmental organizations (DDOs).  Yet, when these newly-minted practitioners land inside organizations, they find they are asked only to do training, facilitation or coaching.

    Most clients and HR professionals see OD as just another HR service. Internal OD staff are usually housed in HR departments; external consultants’ contracts are often brokered by HR. Some HR staff fashion themselves as OD consultants but with little or no training, mentoring or supervision. These confusions dilute the definition of OD and degrade the promise and results of OD work.

    In this interactive session, we’ll explore the differences between “transactional and transformational OD” and how the distinction can help focus us and others on the immense possibilities of true OD.   

    About Your Presenter

    Growing the capacity of leaders and organizations has been the focus of Eric’s career for more than 25 years. As an independent practitioner, his clients include national and local non-profits, health care, higher education, companies, and government at all levels. Eric has also been an internal consultant—at Fred Hutch, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, and the City of Seattle. He taught mid-career professionals for Cascade Executive Programs at the UW Evans School of Public Affairs. A scholar at heart, Eric is an insatiable learner and propagator of OD and maintains a vast archive of tools, models, and case studies.

    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!

    OD Toolkit Series - Third Party Conflict

    Third-party conflict management is a process of facilitation that means you are help­ing two or more people work through a conflict in which you are not personally involved. It is core to OD as practitioners who have a frame and understanding for how to manage conflicts will help organizations work through tough moments more functionally. Effective third-party work uses a whole system focus to 1) manage the conflict so the tasks become effective, 2) ensure maximum learning from each party in the conflict and how they contributed to the issue, 3) resolve potential systemic issues that created the conflict, and 4) create a plan for how to handle similar situations in the future. Openness to managing conflict tremendously helps organizations improve for all employees.

    At the end of the training, participants will:

    • Learn a sequence and structure for resolving conflict between two employees.
    • Understand the core facilitators triangle needed to effectively facilitate conflict and meetings.
    • Learn how to identify subtle blame and help participants take greater ownership of their issues.
    • Know how to leverage systems thinking to ensure the effective sponsorship is in place that allows easier resolution.
    • Increase capacity to recognize and resolve workplace systemic issues that are in part causing the conflict.  

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

    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.
