    Barry Oshry - From Seeing the Possibilities of Organization to Seeing the Possibilities of Culture - Live Via Zoom


    Barry Oshry, in a Live session on Zoom, traces the arc of his work over the past four decades from his fundamental work with organizations to his most recent work focused on the meeting of disparate cultures.

    “Underlying all my work has been the following: We humans are the most social of social creatures, members of the widest variety of social systems. Yet, we are blind to how the structure and processes of these systems shape our consciousness. And that blindness is costly to ourselves, our relationships, and our systems.  My work with organizational life and, more recently with the meeting of cultures, has been to transform system blindness into system sight as a means of opening up new creative and productive possibilities.”

    About Your Presenter

    Barry is a thought leader in the workings of human systems and a pioneer in the development of high-impact experiential education programs. His six-day Power Lab has provided transformative experiences for organizational and institutional leaders from across the globe, and has been the subject of the prize-winning documentary, Power Lab: Living in New Hope.

    He is also the developer of the Organization Workshop and the When Cultures Meet Workshop. Barry’s books – among them The Possibilities of Organization, Seeing Systems, Leading Systems, The Systems Letter, and, most recently, Context Context Context - have provided fundamental insights into social system life. .

    Self-Mastery for Internal and External Change Artists:  The Shadow Knows with Dr. John Scherer

    Special ODN Lifetime Achievement Award Presenter -

    Some OD/OE Consultants and Coaches know a great deal—and even have highly-developed  skills—but are not as effective as they could be.  Why?  Because, regardless of the skills and theories you have mastered, they all get translated through who you ARE as you put them into practice.  Lao Tzu said it this way in 600 BCE:

    Those who know much may be wise, but those who know themselves are even wiser. Those who are master over many may be powerful, but those who are mastering themselves are more powerful still.

    In this intensive 90 minute experience, John Scherer, a 40-year OD/OE veteran and one of America’s leading innovators in personal and professional development, will introduce you to one simple but profound principle that will help you master yourself and deepen your practice.  You will find:

    • Greater awareness of what runs you—your 'Auto Pilot' or 'Adaptive Routine' that holds you back.
    • What your ‘Shadow' has to contribute to your effectiveness as a Coach or Consultant

    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.’

    What HR doesn’t get about OD with Eric Svaren


    Students of organization development (OD) are “sold a bill of goods.” They are taught methods and cases involving transformational change, which is brought about by cutting-edge OD practices—such as appreciative inquiry, future search, Theory U, and deliberately developmental organizations (DDOs).  Yet, when these newly-minted practitioners land inside organizations, they find they are asked only to do training, facilitation or coaching.

    Most clients and HR professionals see OD as just another HR service. Internal OD staff are usually housed in HR departments; external consultants’ contracts are often brokered by HR. Some HR staff fashion themselves as OD consultants but with little or no training, mentoring or supervision. These confusions dilute the definition of OD and degrade the promise and results of OD work.

    In this interactive session, we’ll explore the differences between “transactional and transformational OD” and how the distinction can help focus us and others on the immense possibilities of true OD.   

    About Your Presenter

    Growing the capacity of leaders and organizations has been the focus of Eric’s career for more than 25 years. As an independent practitioner, his clients include national and local non-profits, health care, higher education, companies, and government at all levels. Eric has also been an internal consultant—at Fred Hutch, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, and the City of Seattle. He taught mid-career professionals for Cascade Executive Programs at the UW Evans School of Public Affairs. A scholar at heart, Eric is an insatiable learner and propagator of OD and maintains a vast archive of tools, models, and case studies.

    An Overlooked Element in OD: A Results Focus with Mary Lippitt


    OD initiatives have traditionally focused on improving personal style, competencies, and collaboration. It is time to expand our practices to support the ability to deliver desired results. This session presents a groundbreaking situational framework using six results-oriented lenses that enable leaders to make the right call at the right time for the right results. If we keep doing what we have always done, we will get what we have always gotten, and that is not enough. In our dynamic environment, we cannot let our clients rely on habit and past practice.

    During this session, participants will assess a current goal, explore how checklists improve situational insight and recognize the impact of situational mindsets on change readiness.
