    OD Toolkit Series - Third Party Conflict

    This session will be live via Zoom meeting.

    Learn a core method to manage conflict and to facilitate any group!

    Third-party conflict management is a process of facilitation that means you are help­ing two or more people work through a conflict in which you are not personally involved. It is core to OD as practitioners who have a frame and understanding for how to manage conflicts will help organizations work through tough moments more functionally. Effective third-party work uses a whole system focus to 1) manage the conflict so the tasks become effective, 2) ensure maximum learning from each party in the conflict and how they contributed to the issue, 3) resolve potential systemic issues that created the conflict, and 4) create a plan for how to handle similar situations in the future. Openness to managing conflict tremendously helps organizations improve for all employees.

    At the end of the training, participants will:

    • Learn a sequence and structure for resolving conflict between two employees.
    • Understand the core facilitators triangle needed to effectively facilitate conflict and meetings.
    • Learn how to identify subtle blame and help participants take greater ownership of their issues.
    • Know how to leverage systems thinking to ensure the effective sponsorship is in place that allows easier resolution.
    • Increase capacity to recognize and resolve workplace systemic issues that are in part causing the conflict.  

    This training is limited to 12 participants. Sign up now to ensure your spot!

    OD Toolkit Series - Zoom Enhanced! Practical Brainstorming Sequence


    "Learn one of the most practical and useful sequences I do"

    Many practitioners think of brainstorming as the act of generating ideas. The generation phase is but one step in an effective brainstorm sequence and in fact can pose a challenge if the practitioner does not use a structured approach. Come learn a complete sequence of brainstorming that is highly structured an applicable to all workplaces. The sequence is practical and powerful and, once learned, can be used in full or in part on an ad hoc basis to help any group quickly manage a list of items. If you have ever 1) seen a group generate a list of prob­lems, yet fail to reduce them to a manageable list of actions, 2) seen a group use votes rather than logic to determine their course of action, 3) heard a leader say, “Well it looks like we are all in agreement that X is the course of action” without really knowing the differing beliefs in the group, and found yourself frustrated and not sure what to do, then the following sequence is what you need. It provides simple ways to resolve such dilemmas.

    By learning this sequence of brainstorming, you can quickly reduce lists, balance votes with constructive conversations and clear decision making, and get rapid feedback on what options the different members of the group think are the most critical.

    At the end of the presentation, the participants will: 

    • Lead any group through a highly structured sequence that includes distinct steps and ground rules to ensure a vetted list of actions.
    • Identify and direct any group that gets stuck at any stage while working with a large list of items.
    • Sequence can be used in part or in whole depending on your situation. 

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

    Communities of Practice - Industry Adapted Skills Group (T-Group)


    Official dates and times are set!

    • Launch Session (4 hours): November 4th, 2019, from 1-5pm
    • Monthly Sessions (3 hours):  Third Mondays, from 2:30-5:30pm starting on December 16th, 2019

    We still have space for 4 more!

    Join us for PNODN’s newest Community of Practice.  The Skill Group (T-Group) was the genesis of OD! The Skill Group (T-Group) expands one’s skills in positively impacting any client group through greater self-awareness, authenticity, and understanding of group process. The Industry Adapted T-Group in this community of practice has been applied with thousands in manufacturing, software, non-profits, etc. The T-Group was invented in 1946 to deal with interracial tensions.

    Read  - Why OD Consultants Should be in T-groups

    How this is different from your typical group-process learning experience?

    • This practice group is mostly about deepening skills through practice vs just study. Each session will include some theory, normally coupled with skill practice, and followed by a unique industry adapted T-Group.
    • The skills explored in this group are beyond just how to lead and or facilitate a group... they are also the skills in how to be authentic to both self and community in real time, as a participant in any group (i.e. across sectors, industries, etc), regardless of official role.  This is a hands-on learning experience designed to help you grow your skills as an authentic and creative presence in a group whether you have an official role of authority or not. 
    • This group is about stretching group-process skills in all aspects of group dynamics, including tension, conflict, etc. 
    • This COP will support you in deepening not only your self-awareness, but also your awareness of self-as-member-of-a-group, and further, expand your capacity to contribute to the any group’s deeper “group awareness”.

    Why join us for this unique and special learning opportunity?

    Today’s professional and cultural dynamics are inviting us into deeper competence with group-process. Yet most of our systems lack models of healthy and thriving group dynamics - especially when conflict and seemingly divergent viewpoints arise. This group is about taking our skills beyond “leadership and facilitation techniques” and into the terrain of profound self-awareness in terms of how we intend to show up and how we actually do. In this unique and highly focused space, we will hone and refine our capacity to show up as we intend to our most authentic self as group contributor.

    Logistics:

    We will meet for one half-day orientation session and launch the group.  We will then establish the schedule to meet for 3 hours once a month for 6 months.

    This community of practice is limited to 12 participants. Sign up now to ensure your spot!

    Accelerating Culture Transformation and Leadership Development Through Immersion


    This session will be held via Zoom!

    Discreet approaches are insufficient in helping leaders foster resilience in themselves and their organizations. Learn how a flagship division of a global organization integrated multiple methods from systems thinking, design thinking and growth mindset into an immersive, customized process that helped executives lead a "renaissance" to reposition the business and drive growth. The division selected a cohort of executives who led 3,500 people in the United States, Europe and Asia to participate in an immersive experience to foster personal growth, improve organizational effectiveness and accelerate innovation. Each leader was matched with a consultant who collaborated with them on-site, working with their challenges and teams. We integrated expertise in culture transformation, executive coaching, employee engagement, leadership development and team development. One-year results were statistically significant. Cohort leaders achieved gains in employee engagement up to +38 ppts. and gains in growth mindset up to +43 ppts., accelerating the division's cultural and strategic initiatives.

      • Joining
      • Member agreements
      • Learn case study presentation frame
      • 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 - Down to Earth OD


      "Learn a foundational tenet 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.

      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 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.

      Learn how the intersection of the Flawless Consulting ideas and the conversational architecture in Community: The Structure of Belonging will influence this change.

      About Your Presenter

      Peter Block, is an author and citizen of Cincinnati, Ohio. He is founder of Designed Learning, a training company that offers workshops designed to build the skills outlined in his books.
