    Lean Six Sigma meets Organization Development –

    The Rise of Systemic Coaching & Consulting


    Bill Braswell

    This session is online via Zoom Meeting

    Bill will share his professional journey that led him to adopt these two important disciplines to help him address the social and technical aspects of organizational performance improvement. Bill will share his insights on the differences and similarities of Lean Six Sigma and Organization Development and give examples of how he has integrated Lean Six Sigma and Organization Development in his consulting and coaching practice.

    The integration of LSS and OD has led to the emergence of a different way of thinking about coaching and consulting. He will introduce the concept of systemic coaching and consulting as a new way to think about a future approach to delivering value to organizations in our roles of coaches and consultants. How might a systemic approach disrupt our current thinking and practice? What might be required of coaches and consultants in the future? How might this impact our continuing education? These and many other questions abound when we explore the implications of Systemic Coaching and Consulting.

    Learning Objectives:  By the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:

    • Explain the major differences between the disciplines of Organization Development and Lean Six Sigma
    • Examine the overlap and integration of LSS and OD
    • Explore the implications of Systemic Coaching and Consulting
    • Apply a systemic approach to your coaching and consulting practice.

      Cultivating a Compelling Presence with Frances Baldwin


      Special ODN Lifetime Achievement Award Presenter Frances Baldwin

      Live via zoom meeting.

      My interest in an effectual definition of the word presence, especially, as it relates to the practice of organization development is only heightened as we navigate an environment in which both the speed of change and the changing nature of change itself, challenges our ability to add real value. If “presence” and the use of self are our most reliable tools, what are the implications/needs/methods for mastery of these commonly referenced yet somewhat indistinct phenomena? 

      Gestalt practices define presence as “the living embodiment of knowledge.”  This implies that the, theories and practices essential to change are manifested in the behavior of the consultant.  Whatever our intention or purpose, professional or social, in the experience of others we are content and process in action.

      Objectives: Share and examine in conversation, perspectives on presence

      • Common threads/principles that inform our understanding
      • Presence as a birthright vs ability to develop
      • Knowledge, skills, mindsets and behaviors associated with the most compelling presence we experience in people

      From the Roots of OD to the 21st Century: The Living Legacy of Kurt Lewin


      Michael Papanek

      This session is online via Zoom Meeting

      Michael Papanek will be doing a webinar on the roots of modern organizational development and Michael’s personal connection with Kurt Lewin, who was his grandfather. You will learn what life experiences motivated Kurt Lewin to apply new methods to understanding leadership, relationships between groups and social change, and why so many of us are "Lewinians" today (even if we might not know it). This will be of special interest for Leaders, OD Consultants, HRBPs, Learning and Development professionals, executive coaches and anyone interested in effective leadership and social change. Michael's mother, Dr. Miriam Lewin, was also a social psychologist and Michael and his mother spoke about "father" many times as Michael learned about OD. Michael will share some rare family photos and other artifacts from Kurt Lewin’s life. We will discuss the direct and inspiring connection between Lewin’s works - decades ago - and the work we do in our organizations today.

      Learning Outcomes:

      By the end of this session, you will have a deeper understanding of
      1. Who was Kurt Lewin, and how was his research driven by his family's experiences in Germany, before and during WWII;
      2. What Lewin discovered and his (at that time) radical approach to understanding groups, relationships, leadership, learning and social change;
      3. What tools, ideas and strategies from Lewin's work are in use today, and how these ideas can inspire members of the OD community to address the most difficult issues of our time.
