Navigating the Destabilizing and Transformative COVID-19 Expedition

       Kristina Katayama                   Jeff McAuliffe                            Dan Leahy

This session is online via Zoom Meeting

OD Practitioners are, by definition, change agents in support of organizational health. They are assumed to have the requisite skills to help leaders navigate the relatively familiar dynamics within and between the “Tops”, “Middles”, and “Bottoms” of the systems they serve.  What does OD leadership look like in this time of the COVID Quarantine?

Currently we find ourselves both hunkered down at home while facing a field of uncertainty that transcends the boundaries of current organizations, be they corporate, civic, or not for profit. We think that OD Practitioners may have some of the skills and capacities to help us all navigate this new terrain with courage, creativity and compassion.  Drawing on the leadership models of NOLS (National Outdoor Leadership School) and the wisdom of Angeles Arrien, we will explore this new territory from a unique perspective.

We invite you to join us for an evening of reflection as we explore ways that our profession might influence the organizational health of the relational ecosystems of our communities and beyond.

    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.
