Increasing Your Dialogic OD Practice

with Gervase Bushe


All organizations grapple with change. It’s challenging to manage even when it is small-scale, specific, planned, and embraced by the organization. When it comes through unexpected disruption, and the organization faces the need for urgent, significant transformation in operations or culture, even the most experienced leader can feel

overwhelmed by the complexity.

The Dialogic OD Laboratory will be an experiential, inquiry-based learning event. The Dialogic OD Laboratory will build on participants’ knowledge and/or experience with one

or more dialogic methods (like Appreciative Inquiry, Open Space Technology, Dynamic Facilitation, Art of Convening). The lab will go beyond the techniques to explore the

underlying change processes and frameworks required for successful application of any dialogic change process.


Dr. Gervase Bushe, Professor of Leadership and Organization Development, Beedie School of Business, Simon Fraser University.

Dr. Bushe is one of the OD profession’s most original thinkers. He helped develop the Appreciative Inquiry approach to change, and authored the bestselling book , Clear Leadership. In 2009, Dr. Bushe and Dr. Robert

Marshak of American University published the article “Revisioning Organization Development: Diagnostic and Dialogic Premises and Patterns of Practice,” which challenged the diagnostic foundations of modern organizational change practice. Their co-edited book, Dialogic Organization Development: The Theory and Practice of Transformational Change, was published by Berrett-Koehler in May 2015, and reflects the results of their collaboration with an international group of scholars and practitioners to develop the theory and practice of Dialogic OD.
