The Three Gifts: An Evening with Dr. Darya Funches

Discernment, Heart and Presence are the three gifts inside each person and are three capabilities essential for leaders in complex and turbulent times to move beyond survival and thrive in a creative knowledge based economy. The Three Gifts stand at the nexus of science, knowledge of consciousness and effective use of self. First outlined in a seminal article published in Emerging Theory and Practice of Organization Development in 1989, Dr. Darya Funches has developed a storehouse of knowledge and skills to help practitioners recognize and refine their use of these gifts for effective use of self as a leader, change agent and/or transformer. This is an exceptional opportunity to learn from a master. There is no better time than now to learn more about how to practice these gifts in our client systems and communities. In what promises to be an active evening, Darya will define the key concepts and help us apply the concepts and select related skills to real-time client and community situations.


Dr. Darya Funches is recognized as one of the most distinguished OD practitioners of our era. Through her Mossyrock, WA-based REAP Unlimited firm, she has taught, coached and mentored many leaders/executives, professional consultants and change agents in transformation, earning her a reputation as a consultant’s consultant and as a visionary leader in the OD field in the eyes of her clients and students.

Her peers have elevated Dr. Funches to such leadership positions in our field as Chair of the Board of Trustees of the international Organization Development Network. The Network also designated her as one of 12 Sages of OD in 1993. Darya also served as Chair of the Board of Directors for National Training Laboratories Institute for Applied Behavioral Science. She served as faculty for the American University/NTL Masters of Science in Human Resources Program [AU/NTL], where she was Most Outstanding Adjunct Faculty and currently is on faculty of the AU MSOD program.
