    Helping Leaders Navigate the Transition Zone


    How can you help your clients be ready to take on the next level of responsibility and complexity?  Ann Kruse, an Executive Coach, will introduce us to Stage Development Theory, which can help us understand what’s going on inside leaders as they tackle new levels of complexity and change. 

    We will focus on a particular aspect of personal growth: the Transition Zone. When you are in the Transition Zone, you are in between two states. You can help your client best when you understand the two states and when you understand how transition zones work.

    In this highly interactive workshop you will learn

      • Stage Development Theory, the foundation for understanding the dynamics of the Transition Zone. 
      • How to recognize when a client is in the Transition Zone.
      • Six ways to help your client navigate the Transition Zone.
        About Your Presenter

        Ann Kruse has been advising and coaching business leaders for over 30 years, first as a business lawyer and then as an organization development consultant, human resources manager, leadership development consultant, and executive coach.  Her clients often face growing complexity in their business challenges (such as mergers, bankruptcy, or industry deregulation), or in personal challenges as they take on greater responsibility.  Her academic background includes a JD (law) degree, a masters degree in organization development (MSOD, Pepperdine Univ.) and certification as a professional coach. 

        Join us for networking starting at 6 pm!

        Organization Development: Past, Present, Future with W. Warner Burke, PhD


        Special ODN Lifetime Achievement Award Presenter W.Warner Burke

        In short this session could be described as “clarifying misunderstandings” overtime.

        Past

        • Lewin’s three-step or phased model: An underlying assumption is that the process is linear. Although depicted as three linear steps of unfreeze – change – refreeze Lewin did not move to step 2 (or 3) until action research based on field theory (think FFA) was conducted to determine what the consequences of phase 1 had been taking into account particularly the context (think Bf P, E). Movement should be depicted as a “blob” with many components not as an arrow. The change process is only linear with respect to overall goal(s) not individual steps or acts to get there.
        • Alfred Marrow’s role and leadership regarding the beginnings of OD: Marrow was the primary implementer of Lewin’s ideas. He believed so strongly in the value of participative management and leadership that he dictated that all managers in his company. Harwood, would learn to practice participation. (Today we call it “inclusive leadership.”) Marrow was practicing OD prior to the so-called pioneers - Beckhard, McGregor, Blake & Mouton, Shepard, Bennis, and Schein among others.

        Present

        • Organization development and change management – one and the same. Not so.
        • If McKinsey is in your organization, it is too late!

        Future

        • See the “Four Trends” article by Church and Burke in the OD Practitioner, 2017, 49(3); which will be updated – (1) Platforms over products, (2) Digital over mechanical, (3) Insights over data, and (4) Talent over employees. And here comes the latest job title “People Analytics.”

        What to Do When You Don't Know What to Do: Tapping into The Source Code with Dr. John Scherer

        Special ODN Lifetime Achievement Award Presenter -

        John will fly to Seattle all the way from Poland!

        Participants please bring a pen and paper to write on, thanks! 

        As a trainer, coach or consultant, what do you do when you don’t know what to do?!

        What is available to you beneath the thoughts you have—or even the feelings? 

        What is your ’source code’ and how can you access it when you need it?

        John Scherer says he has needed his ‘source code’ quite a few times in four his decades of ’transforming the world at work’. Come for an evening of discovery—or re-discovery—of YOUR 'source code’ and practice accessing it, making you a bit more effective and at peace in those moments when both seem far away.

        Along with other OD Elders, John still has a lot to share. In 1973, at Bob Crosby’s invitation, John left the Lutheran ministry to co-create (with Bob and Ron Short) the LIOS MA-ABS Graduate Program. Now living and operating out of a base in Warsaw, Poland, since 2008, John has been introducing OD—and his brand of Leadership Development—to Eastern Europe.

        ‘John is one of handful of Masters in the field of transformation alive today, and we consider ourselves fortunate to have him with us.’ —Przemek Gawronski (5th Degree Aikido Master and Partner, Scherer Leadership Center)

        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.’

        Flawless Consulting and Social Impact with Peter Block


        Special ODN Lifetime Achievement Award Presenter Peter Block

        The work is to realize society and wider culture are moving towards a point where a social purpose wider than profit will be required. The name for this is to move toward the Common Good, bringing balance to a world where the private sector has been the point. We are nearing the end of the era where profit is our sole purpose for existing. We are going to end poverty as we know it, not escape from it.  

        To move in this direction, we use our convening skills to have strangers develop affection for each other and decide on action. Call it community building, engagement, system change. It all begins with the accountability among peers, in this case citizens.

        Learn how the intersection of the Flawless Consulting ideas and the conversational architecture in Community: The Structure of Belonging will influence this change.

        About Your Presenter

        Peter Block, is an author and citizen of Cincinnati, Ohio. He is founder of Designed Learning, a training company that offers workshops designed to build the skills outlined in his books.

        Back to Basics: Creating Large and Small Systems Change


        In today’s volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world, organizations need to reinvent themselves. Many organizations are reinventing their products and/or services for a world that is very different from the world of just a few years ago. However, organizations not only need the right product and service for today’s world, they need the right culture that enables higher individual, team, and organizational performance for constant innovation. Often, the quality of human interaction in many organizations does not match the need for teamwork, collaboration, inclusion and joint problem solving.

        In this session we will discuss proven interventions to create higher performing inclusive organizations that leverage diversity and the strategies needed to develop today’s leaders and teams.  Specifically, we will explore:

        • Raising the bar for all team members
        • Diagnosing where an organization is on the Path to Inclusion
        • Creating mindsets for greater joining
        • Conscious Actions for Inclusion
        • And making the case for developing inclusive leaders and the impact on performance.
