    Back to Basics: Continuing to Create Inclusion in the Virtual World

    Due to COVID19 Fred and Judith will be live via Zoom Meeting! Exciting news! They have agreed to come back in person when it is safe!

    The pandemic and our current reality of physical distancing are forcing us to change in a way we have done things in the past. Before 2020 many organizations and leaders could not envision how it was possible for their teams to work from home (WFH) and for many it is now a fact of life. In addition to the rapid shift in how teams operate they must balance the real day-to-day experiences and effects of COVID-19 all while continuing  address current organizational needs  and positioning themselves for the future.

    Building an inclusive organization does not stop because how we work is shifting—it is now more important and more difficult in some ways, and it requires thought to how we want to enhance our interactions. Are your virtual meetings and interactions structured in a way where…

      …everyone’s voice is included?
      …all team members know their priorities and aware of what others are working on?
      …spontaneous collaboration is maintained through distance?
      …people have the right tools and support to do their best work?
      …there is space to allow team members to share what is going on in their world, how they are coping or taking care of themselves, and how you can be there for each other?

    Join us to discuss some of the lessons learned from this past month and tips to maintain the quality of our interactions while we work virtually, reduce isolation, identify ways to partner and be a resource to others, and most importantly, continue to create connection during this time of physical distancing.

    OD Professionals and the Equity Lens: A Call to Make Unconscious Incompetence Conscious


    “OD Practitioners are, by definition, change agents in support of organizational health. Over the years the OD field has contributed many concepts and processes that have significantly improved organizational effectiveness and productivity. As professionals we strive to become consciously competent in those concepts and processes.

    AND… those concepts and processes were developed through the lens of our current dominant social narrative. What might we find if we look at organizational effectiveness and wellness through the lens of equity (racial, gender, sexual orientation, etc.)? How might those revelations inform our practice and our professions and the systems we seek to serve?

    You’re invited to join us for an evening of exploration in our unconscious incompetence at effectively embodying our profession through an equity lens and what we might choose to do should we step into the learning stance of conscious incompetence.”

      About Your Presenter

      Kristina Katayama witnessed first-hand the generational trauma passed through her family struggling to survive the hardships of immigration followed by race-based imprisonment in the Japanese-American internment camps of WWII. Being of mixed "race", she also experienced the socially conditioned drive to assimilate in order to "succeed", even if she could never belong. Compelled to understand where culture ends and humanity begins, Kristina sought out opportunities to live, study and work across more than 30 countries around the world.

      Inspired by her experience and fascinated by human systems, Kristina has dedicated over 20 years as a process consultant, facilitator and executive coach, designing and delivering programs for leadership development, high performing teams, cultural transformation and organizational effectiveness. Today Kristina brings REAL (Racial Equity Adaptive Leadership) and increases power intelligence to the systems she serves.

      Jeff McAuliffe is a seasoned professional in process improvement, leadership and organization development.  After spending decades as an internal and external coach and consultant AND clouded in the “luxury of obliviousness,” he is committed to positive action on issues of equity and inclusion.  

      Dan Leahy is an innovative leadership development specialist, at an individual and organizational level. He served in many leadership roles within the LIOS Graduate Program. Although his work has been, until recently, has been informed by the dominate privileged narrative his current growing edge is to step into the unconscious incompetence of exploring doing the work from the perspective of equity and social justice.

      Accelerating Culture Transformation and Leadership Development Through Immersion


      Discreet approaches are insufficient in helping leaders foster resilience in themselves and their organizations. Learn how a flagship division of a global organization integrated multiple methods from systems thinking, design thinking and growth mindset into an immersive, customized process that helped executives lead a "renaissance" to reposition the business and drive growth. The division selected a cohort of executives who led 3,500 people in the United States, Europe and Asia to participate in an immersive experience to foster personal growth, improve organizational effectiveness and accelerate innovation. Each leader was matched with a consultant who collaborated with them on-site, working with their challenges and teams. We integrated expertise in culture transformation, executive coaching, employee engagement, leadership development and team development. One-year results were statistically significant. Cohort leaders achieved gains in employee engagement up to +38 ppts. and gains in growth mindset up to +43 ppts., accelerating the division's cultural and strategic initiatives.

        Flawless Consulting and Social Impact with Peter Block


        Special ODN Lifetime Achievement Award Presenter Peter Block

        Peter will do this session live via zoom meeting.

        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
