      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!

      OD Toolkit Series - How to Get Started Improving Racial Equity in Your Organization


      Janis Avery

      This training will be conducted live via Zoom.

      Many are called to lead toward racial equity and justice yet few know how to do it in a way that makes lasting differences. As consultants, leaders of organizations, teams and groups, the opportunity to transform is great. The roadmap, however, is not so clear.

      This training is created for those struggling through DEI initiatives who are asking questions such as, "how can we engage in ways that make real differences in our organizations success and in our lives?"

      In this workshop we will experience an approach for determining yours or your organization’s purpose for leading toward racial equity, designed to align your personal or business mission to racial equity. Then we will examine several tools that can help you determine next steps in impactful action.

      Objectives:

      • Define commonly used terms in racial equity or Diversity, Equity and Inclusion initiatives
      • Learn an approach for determining alignment between mission fulfillment and racial equity
      • Explore three tools that participants can use to drive toward measurable change in their organizations
      About Your Facilitator

      Janis Avery is a mission-focused, outcome-oriented leader whose leadership coaching fosters alignment in organizations, clarity and belonging. 

      With deep knowledge and proven results from a 40 year career in human services, Janis is now addressing the root causes of social problems, with racial equity in the center. She has demonstrated that focusing the business through the lens of racial equity leads to better outcomes and deeper satisfaction and impact for all--clients, volunteers, and staff alike.

      OD and HR: Is OD Stuck in the Wrong Place?


      Matt Minahan

      Special ODN Lifetime Achievement Award Presenter

      Live via zoom meeting.

      The relationship between OD and HR has been problematic for decades, but seems even more challenging now. Across organizations of all sizes and in all sectors, the OD function has become absorbed into HR. OD jobs have been converted into training, talent, and business partner jobs. There is much more learning than OD in jobs in Learning and OD. The result has been an OD function that is focused on engagement surveys, performance management system redesign, and the occasional team building event.

      As a result, well trained, systems thinking OD people are being underutilized and sub-optimized. The more strategic OD functions of strategy, structure, business process, leadership team development, and culture change remain unaddressed where the OD function is situated in HR.

      What's behind the dilemma and what to do about is the focus of our May 17th meeting.

      At the end of this session, participants will:

      • Understand the core and fundamental differences between the OD and HR functions;
      • Understand why OD is a lot more than just advanced HR; and
      • Understand why where the OD function is located on the organization chart is critical to its success

      How to use Basic Group Process to do Work Team Development (AKA Survey Feedback)


      Chris Crosby

      This training will be conducted live via Zoom.

      Group process formed the foundations of Organization Development yet so few are trained in it. Worse, some think group meetings do not work therefore only work individually with employees which wastes valuable time and synergy.

      Kurt Lewin, who many credit as the founder of modern Organization Development, created Action Research. He stated, “...it is easier to change ideology or cultural habits by dealing with groups than with individuals (Lewin, 1944, 1999, p289).” Group dynamics are critical to change because individuals are heavily influenced by their primary social environments: “B = f(P,E)–Behavior is a function of the person AND the environment (Lewin, 1940, 1997, p188).”

      The group process you will learn here is derived from Kurt Lewin's Action Research and can be used with any survey. In reality, many workplaces conduct an annual employee survey. Such surveys can increase or decrease morale. Decreases often happen rapidly. What most don't realize is that the survey does not matter. What does matter is the group process used to transform the survey in to action. This training will provide you with a process that ensures maximum positive benefit from any survey.

      Most survey companies are led by statistics experts rather than Applied Behavioral Scientists (ABS). Come learn a core ABS process that is simple and repeatable which practitioners can use to turn survey data into action.

      Participants will discover how to use surveys in a way that energizes the organization and addressing real work place issues

      At the end of the presentation, the participants will: 

      • Understand the keys to creating an effective group process
      • Learn an 11 step process to translate any survey data into action.
      • Raise awareness of common traps when using surveys.
      • Utilize a 12 question workplace questionnaire.

      This training is limited to 20 participants. Sign up now to ensure your spot!

      It’s Time for Scholar Practitioners to Make a Loud Noise!


      Sandra Janoff

      Special ODN Lifetime Achievement Award Presenter

      Live via zoom meeting.

      This is a grave moment in time! We are being pounded by a torrent of crises, each piled on top of the other and impacting everyone on the planet: global warming, the covid pandemic, rising fascism, racial injustice, the refugee crisis, mental health crisis, economic devastation, global and local inequalities. Our fragmented systems are broken and collapsing in front of us. We are all drowning in the flood and turning against each other in rage. Clearly, we must see the urgency of the work we do. I have a perspective on why systems are broken and what we can do to leverage our role in achieving security for our future. I also would like to throw in a little fun!

      At the end of this session, participants will:

      • Awareness of global crises and our responsibility as practitioners.                                    
      • Clarity on what “everybody improving whole systems” really means.
      • Explore why working with differences is hard work and worth it.

      Getting "Back" to the Workplace - DEI as a Roadmap


      Catrina Cuevas

      This training will be conducted live via Zoom.

      The past year has been an eye-opening experience for employers and employees. As companies face tough questions about how to return to the workplace safely, they also face increasing pressure from employees who are discovering they don’t want to return to the workplace or business as usual. Even before the pandemic, 72% of millennial employees said they would leave their company for a more inclusive one (2017, Deloitte Inclusion Pulse Survey). In 2021, employees are demanding safe and inclusive work environments, anti-racism action, and leaders who take a stand on social issues. Leaders and organizations are scrambling to navigate the chronic ambiguity, manage with a trauma-informed approach, and re-define what an inclusive "workplace" actually means. In this interactive session, we'll explore how to create a more equitable and inclusive strategy for getting “back” to a workplace that works for everyone.

      At the end of this session participants will be able to:

      • Define the business imperative for DEIB in creating a return to the workplace strategy.
      • List equity, inclusion and belonging challenges companies are facing re-defining what it means to "return to the workplace".
      • Practice a decision-making framework that centers inclusion, belonging and equity.
      • Reflect on their own strengths, skill gaps and biases.

      Authentic Sources of Power for Consultants


      John Scherer

      Special ODN Lifetime Achievement Award Presenter

      Special Saturday morning presentation to accommodate John all the way from Poland!

      Live via zoom meeting.

      No one HAS power. What a painful-but-unavoidable truth. . .

      • We don’t just HAVE power, for instance with clients and colleagues.
      • Because ‘power’ functions as a kind of ‘currency’ that happens in relationship
      • It’s a kind of ‘exchange’ of energy.
      • People give it to us.
      • Or they don’t. . .
      • When they do, they allow us to influence them because they see in us (‘project’ onto us) some kind of ‘good reason’

      What are some good reasons for clients to allow us to influence them ('give us power’)? Over the years, as an OD Consultant, Gestalt Therapist and Executive Coach, I have discovered seven sources of power that I believe are important to understand. What they are, where they come from, and what are the benefits and dangers associated with them.

      Learning Outcomes:

      1. The ability to NAME the seven major Sources of Power for Consultants.
      2. Understanding the upsides and downsides of each.
      3. How to choose when to use which one to maximize creative impact and minimize negative consequences.

      About Your Presenter

      John Scherer - Moving from Seattle in 2008 to a base in Warsaw, John has become known as ’the guy who introduced OD to Poland’. In 2018, he delivered a module (on ’Action Research’) to the first PhD Program in Shenyang, China, and since 1987, men and women executives and community leaders from 54 countries have graduated from his Executive/Leadership Development Intensives, making the impact of his work truly international. 

      He was author of Work and the Human Spirit, which, at the time of its first printing in 1993, christened the name for this growing trend in management studies and leadership development. John draws on a diverse background as a former U.S. Naval officer, Lutheran Minister, Gestalt Therapist and Applied Behavioral Scientist to pursue his mission of transforming the world at work. 

      In 1974 he joined Bob Crosby (Founder) and Ron Short as one of the original three co-creators of the LIOS Graduate Program. 

      His new book, Facing the Tiger: Unleashing the Human Spirit at Work, is available on Kindle, as well as an Interactive Edition available on the Scherer Center website.  https://scherercenter.com/
