Use of Self in Leading and Changing

David Jamieson

Special ODN Lifetime Achievement Award Presenter

Live via zoom meeting.

How we handle our ‘selves’ in the execution of our helping, high-impact roles is the critical element in our performance and outcomes! Aspects of Use of Self have been used and taught across OD, clinical roles, teaching, and nursing for decades, yet we continue to experience many issues with leadership, change results, and organizational/societal ethics. Each person is a complex of personality factors, identities, values, skills, capabilities; and biases, vulnerabilties, and emotions. We all can understand our selves better, which provides us with improved self- and emotional-management, behavioral choices, and desired impacts on others we intend in our roles.

Dave will share the results of the first and only global research on this topic along with his years of creating and integrating the conceptual foundations of this human function and designing and teaching others how to build their pathways to their Best Selves. The conceptual elements and phases of development combined with experiential learning activities have proven valuable for many in improving who they are and how they impact their worlds.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand what  ‘Use of Self’ is and what’s involved and related to our UoS
  • Identify an aspect of your own use of self that you wish to improve
  • Learn a few tips from teaching hundreds of people on their personal UoS journey
