    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.

    In this programs participants will -

    • Learn how the intersection of the Flawless Consulting ideas and the conversational architecture in Community: The Structure of Belonging will influence this change.
    • Interact with a legend in the field

    Messaging to Win Clients: Taking Control of your Personal Brand


    Bryan Rutberg

    This session is online via Zoom Meeting

    Your personal brand is the key to your success. For independent consultants and FTE OD professionals alike, the reputation you develop with your words and deeds is the key to winning trust and, for consultants, winning business at all. In a fast-paced, fun session, business communications expert Bryan Rutberg will help you build your winning personal brand statement. Identify key skills and capabilities, hone the art of telling great stories about your work and impact, and find the right ways to get your message communicated. When your message is clear and potential clients know what results you promise, it’s easy to find the right engagements that bring you, and your client, the success you want.

      Use of Self as a True Transformer: An Experience with Darya Funches, Ed.D


      Special ODN Lifetime Achievement Award Presenter Darya Funches

      Darya will do this session live via zoom meeting.

      At a time when many human systems are challenged to redefine, restore, reinvent, or regenerate themselves─the knowledge, capacities, and capabilities to transform are in high demand. This makes transformation─the real thing─useful for all us, especially those who commit to helping others stay ahead of the waves of change.  In my work and research with people who lead or guide transformations for individuals, organizations and beyond, some key shared principles emerged.  The evening experience is based on a few of the principles used by true transformers, intended to help members of PNODN move forward during these tumultuous times: 

      • Understand a few key principles of true transformers
      • Be aware of how these relate to you and your highest potential
      • Activate your potential, moving vision into reality

      There is no better time for the caterpillar to become the butterfly.  There is no better time for the phoenix to rise from the ashes. True transformers recognize the destination and they know the journey.

      Generative Change – an alternative to the Planned Change Model with Gervase Bushe


      Special ODN Lifetime Achievement Award Presenter Gervase Bushe

      Live via zoom meeting.

      In this session Gervase will describe the Generative Change Model that has emerged from the research he and Bob Marshak have done into what makes contemporary OD methods succeed or fail.  Generative Change provides a way of thinking about how we use large group intervention methods that makes them more likely to be transformational.  Compared to the standard Planned Change Model, the Generative Change model is a better fit for today’s organizations that require greater agility and engagement.  His new book (The Dynamics of Generative Change: BMI Publishing, 2020) describes how a low-tech warehouse and distribution operation transformed into a highly engaged, collaborative, agile and fully digitized one in a little more than two years after the first phone call between the consultant and the Director.  They accomplished this without a vision, without a plan, without training, any resistance to change, and only 1 external OD consultant.  They did it through an emergent, generative change process.

      About Your Presenter

      Gervase R. Bushe has been an OD consultant and researcher for over 40 years.  He completed a Ph.D.  at Case Western Reserve in 1983 and has published over 100 articles, chapters and books. His 2015 book Dialogic Organization Development (co-edited with Bob Marshak) has had a global impact on scholars and practitioners. In 2016 he was added to HR Magazine’s list of the 30 most influential thinkers in people strategy, and each year since.  A chapter on his life and work appears in the Palgrave Handbook of Organizational Change Thinkers.  Gervase is the Professor of Leadership and Organization Development at the Beedie School of Business, Simon Fraser University, in Vancouver, Canada.

      Trust Repair Strategies


      Wendy Fraser

      This session is online via Zoom Meeting

      Trust permeates relationships. When there is trust within groups, information flows and issues can be resolved easier. However, working effectively as a team is incredibly challenging when groups experience a lack of trust. If left unaddressed it can seriously disrupt relationships and work systems. When this happens, the question arises:

      Is it possible to repair trust?

      Based on experience and research, the answer is yes! This session shares specific trust behaviors that can be used as a diagnostic instrument and a repair model that draws upon facets of OD. We will engage as a community of practitioners and explore repairing trust at the individual, interpersonal, group and organizational levels. Considering the pain the country is experience with racial injustice, this body of work can provide a strategy for healing.

        About Your Presenter
