    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

    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.

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!

    OD Toolkit Series - Systems Thinking Applied to Work

    Introduction to the Sponsor/Agent/Target/Advocate (SATA) framework which is a simple, profound, and repeatable way to ensure your business aligns its employees and has a clear path to success. It is core for anyone, anywhere, trying to accomplish anything.

    SATA is a tool to analyze the interactions between key organization roles, each with a critical function, who may be either performing effectively or under- or over-functioning. SATA is not a top-down theory; it is a map of legitimate authority. There are several moments when using SATA is critical; one of the most common is when you are unable to complete a task because another key person is not cooperating. The common temptation in these moments is to blame the employee which, whether you are aware of it or not, is an individual theory of change. SATA, however, is a systemic theory that helps organizations use a wider perspective.

    SATA holds the key to effective day-to-day work, planning for any size of project or initiative, and as a constant compass if you are in the role of consultant or change agent. Further, the power of SATA is that it is a definitional model that identifies whichever role you are in at any moment. Each role has specific behavioral requirements which must be met to ensure success.

    This version of SATA is based on Robert Crosby’s clarify of authority in systems.

    At the end of the presentation, the participants will: 

    • Learn a step-by-step repeatable process to understand any scenario in relationship to the authority structures that exists and create strategies for improvement.
    • Understand your SATA role in relationship to a core project, initiation, or client system and use this understanding to ensure healthy boundaries within the system.
    • Recognize potential SATA traps and ways out of them.
    • Develop a strategy to strengthen sponsorship for the project, initiative, or cross functional task you analyze.
    • Learn how to leverage sponsorship
