    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.

    Transition is psychological and is a three-phase process where people gradually accept the details of the new situation and the changes that come with it.

    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

    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!

    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!
