    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!

    OD Toolkit Series - Managing Change and Transitions


    Based on William Bridge’s work on managing transitions. 

    Change is situational and happens with or without people transitioning.

    At the end of the presentation, the participants will: 

    •    Learn from and be supported by others who are experiencing transition 

    •    Identify responses to the phases and common emotions associated with personal transition

    •    Apply tools and resources to more effectively manage my own transitions

    •    Develop an action plan for managing my own transitions more successfully

    Leadership Transitions: Reduce the disruption when a new leader takes the helm.


    Almost all workplaces are in transition. Employees leave for one reason or another and each departure has an impact. What many do not realize is that a simple, repeatable a step-by-step process exists to significantly reduce disruption when is a work group has new leader or many new employees.

    A transition meeting is a best practice facilitated conversation between the subordinates and the new leader as soon as possible (or during high turnover between the leader and new employees).

    The act of saying, “I am leaving my position” sends a wave of emotions throughout a work team. Research conducted by the US Navy documented a consistent decrease in effectiveness and productivity lasting approximately six months. However, downtime can be reduced through a structured transition. After applying this approach, research showed a reliable reduction of the disruption period from six months to around a month when applying an effective transition strategy.

    Come join and learn this simple, yet powerful group process.

    At the end of the training, participants will:

    • Learn a step-by-step process to transition new leaders.
    • Know how to accelerate new groups or new leaders to perform quickly.
    • Understand common group dynamics at the time of leadership transitions.

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

    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!
