Burnout is a very real threat to our health, our life satisfaction, and our effectiveness as leaders, partners, parents and caregivers. The need for practical burnout support and personal resilience skills has never been more urgent. As OD practitioners, we are uniquely positioned to help our clients recognize burnout and support leaders and teams to develop resilient ways of living and working. We also need this support and skillset for ourselves, to stay resilient and whole in our role as change agents and model what the systems around us are missing.
Participants will have opportunities to practice with resilience skills such as body-mind connection, mindset work, and exploration of boundaries as we review the Five Keys to Resilience, in the large group and in breakouts (as possible).

Many DEI initiatives support the status quo. It can be performative, box-checking, and not make substantive change. But when done right, it can support positive working conditions for people of the global majority. During this session we will discuss the elements that support organizations to activate DEI values into transformative and sustainable practices.
The deep partnership between Sarah & Myisha T Hill, author (latest book is Healing Our Way Forward), educator, and guide to people, leaders, and organizations healing from the interlocking systems of domination has yielded results for organizations that we'll bring to this community. Today, we do organization development together, and work as a Black woman (Myisha) and white woman (me) team to go from status quo to transformation of DEI .
We have created an interactive session that we'd like to share with the PODN membership. The session takes stock of the DEI field of today and names the elements necessary for sustainable transformational change. Our workshop includes case studies of successful DEI engagements for organization transformation, including trainings on building Communities of Care. In the course of our interactive workshop, we also support participants to consider their own contexts and leadership in DEI.
In this program, you will:
1. Understand the state of DEI today.
2. Understand the foundational elements necessary for sustainable change and transformative DEI practices in organizations.
3. Understand how an adaptive "Transformational Sprint" approach can support sustainable change in organizations.

Dr. Holly Hall
Effectiveness and efficiency of organizations is significantly shaped by approaches and practices of leadership. Servant leadership has emerged as an effective leadership style that prioritizes the full potential of the employee. Servant leaders demonstrate compassion and altruistic calling, traits which foster a strong workforce with cohesiveness, collaboration, and sustainable relationships. Servant leadership improves employee’s engagement and retention and fosters a work environment that permits disagreements and rewards truth telling and engenders constructive accountability.
Highly engaged employees are less likely to experience burnout than their traditional counterparts, use less sick leave, and stay with their organization longer. Higher engagement also predicts significant positive outcomes for teams and organizations. In fact, the direct relationship between the manager and the employee may be the most impactful determinant of an employee’s engagement level.
Holly Hall is a doctorate graduate of Indiana Wesleyan University. She studied Organizational Leadership and her research focused on servant-leadership in the healthcare environment. She is a nurse researcher. Dr. Hall has presented her research on servant-leadership at local and international conferences. She attended Lou Tice’s, The Pacific Institute internationally known for developing individual and organizations’ leaders. She has over thirty-five years in the healthcare system with experience in administration and policy development.
She is a published author in ProQuest, Sigma Theta Tau Publishing, and the Journal of Home Health Care Management and Practice. Dr. Hall founded Unlimited Health Concepts, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization for educating local and national healthcare professionals on impending and current healthcare issues.
Dr. Hall has received numerous awards for her exemplary leadership, nursing excellence, and innovative policy development. Dr. Hall specializes in instrument design and development. She is honored to be currently conducting research with two renowned international leaders in the UK, Dr. Dirk van Dierendonck and Dr. Milton Sousa with plans to publish.
This session will be conducted live via Zoom.
