    OD Toolkit Series - Down to Earth OD


    "Learn foundational tenets of OD

    OD is simple. It began as group development and in a decade or so evolved into organization development. Obviously for group development you need a group! Organizations are made up of groups! Some are intact (boss and direct reports). Some are cross functional including many projects. To change culture you do it group-by-group!

    The fundamental form of organization development is working with the groups in the organization. Most effective is cascading that work from the top management to the hourly worker while discovering and working on employee/employee and group-to-group conflicts. Working these─trust me─is easy.

    I will go into detail using references in my “Memoirs” which registrants will receive free electronically.

    There’s no magic here. No new programs or material that has to be purchased. Done group-by-group OD is powerful in productivity, quality, safety, etc. I’ll highlight that in this session. Also I’ll highlight the context in which OD is doing its work today.

    In this training participants will learn:

    • Core principles that are part of all OD work
    • The basics of working conflicts between groups and people
    • Stories and case studies from a 60 plus year OD veteran

    Zoom meeting info will be sent out 24hrs prior to the training!

    About Your Instructor

    Robert P. Crosby, M.DIV, STM (Boston University) at 92 is still active. He won a lifetime achievement award from the OD Network in 2016. He has 60 plus years of experience helping organizations get clear about effective leadership, alignment, teamwork, change management, task accomplishment and accountability. He is a master in his field, having founded the Leadership Institute of Seattle (LIOS) in 1969, and held faculty roles through LIOS contracts at universities such as Antioch in Seattle and Martin University (named after Martin Luther King Jr.) in Indianapolis, Indiana. LIOS became the first Masters program in Organization Development in 1973.

    In 1991 he created a corporate (Masters) leadership program to train both managers and steelworkers in Alcoa. Three of the participating plants were in Addy (WA), Knoxville (Tn) and Evansville (In). All three were failing prior to the program and Robert’s intensive two year intervention. By 1994 Knoxville and Evansville created one-third of the world wide profits for Alcoa. He has led T-Groups in six countries. He has published several business books including The Cross-Functional Workplace, Walking the Empowerment Tightrope, and most recently Cultural Change in Organizations. In the current annual Jossey-Bass book on Organization Development, Robert has recently co-authored an article with Matthew Minahan of American University called, “The Classic T-Group.” His forth coming book is on T-Groups.

    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

      OD Toolkit Series - How to Conduct an Effective Job Search

      This training will be conducted live via Zoom. The zoom meeting details will be sent out 24hr prior to the training.

      Searching for a job can be one of the biggest challenges faced in the world of work. In a reality where crucial quality of life resources depend on full time employment (wage, health insurance coverage) the stress of job searching can be formidable.

      Research and the experiences of many people identify 2 main job success contributors: hard work and networking. Join us at PNODN as recent job searcher Amy Casebolt unpacks what this hard work and networking looked like for her during the past few months.

      Based in research, the experiences of dozens of professionals she talked with during her search, and her own job search story, you will learn what hard work needs to be done in a job search and all about how to network effectively. As a special bonus, effective actions that will make you shine in your first 90 days at your new job will be discussed!

      At the end of this session, participants will:

      • Identify 3 powerful job-search websites that enable you to get your resume to thousands of recruiters and cater job alerts to your e-mail
      • List 1 thing to do before, during, and after an informational interview
      • Identify 3 sections of a quality cover letter
      • List 2 ways to serve while gaining valuable experience and connections

      About Your Instructor

      Amy Casebolt achieved her MA in Industrial-Organizational (I-O) Psychology from Seattle Pacific University in 2019. She came to her graduate studies after many years in the work world doing customer service in health care and health plan organizations. During a time of particularly difficult organizational change, she left her job to pursue her Masters degree, inspired that there must be a better way to do organizational change.

      After moving to the Seattle area, she and her husband both applied to Starbucks because it offers health insurance for part time work. She worked there as a barista through her graduate studies. Yet after graduation, the search for a professional role in I-O Psychology proved difficult as she struggled to weave a consistent narrative of her work experience. After 5 months of hard work and networking, she accepted a full time role as Trainer with the Community Health Plan of WA. Amy knows her struggle with the job search is experienced by many, and is happy to share what she has learned along the way!

      The Pacific Northwest Organization Development Network (PNODN) is coordinating Communities of Practice for OD professionals. The purpose of this group is to offer opportunities for OD professionals or anyone leading projects or change initiatives in the greater business community to come together with like-minded practitioners to consult with each other, look at your cases through a systemic lens, learn socio-technical components of change, share best practices, and develop through collaboration.

      The initial meeting will be a four-hour session to build the community of practice including -
      • Joining
      • Member agreements
      • Learn case study presentation frame
      • Learn systemic frame to view cases through
      • Learn socio-technical aspects
      • Establish the 6 month calendar
      • Establishing the next few months of case study presenters
      The groups will continue for six months.  After the initial four-hour meeting, the group will meet for 6 two hour sessions. Groups will be facilitated by a PNODN Board President Chris Crosby.

      This Community of practice is limited to 6 participants. Sign up now to ensure your spot!

      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

        Dr. Wendy Fraser mentors the collective wisdom in organizations by engaging the talents and hearts of people. She fosters and builds capacity by strengthening relationships and systems so groups and organizations thrive. Wendy has a PhD and three master’s degrees and creatively blends that to design fresh approaches, grounded in research, with a flare of humor that gets results for clients all over the world.
