    OD Community Connections - Being OD


    This PNODN Community Gathering will be conducted live via Zoom. The zoom meeting details will be sent out prior to the training.

    At our core, PNODN is a community. We are brought together by our shared passion for helping people thrive and organizations achieve more by unleashing the human potential within them. 

    Whether you think of yourself as an OD person or not, if you share this passion, we think you’ll love connecting with the amazing people in this community.

    Once each month we dedicate this gathering to the purpose of building community, helping you make connections that add value to your life in friendship, support and business collaboration.

    This is not your typical networking event where you share your business cards and well-worn elevator pitch. 

    This is about making authentic connections with people in our local community with whom you share this passion for people and fascination with the human dynamics of organizations.

    Each time we gather we’ll offer topics in line with our quarterly theme and guidance to make conversation easy. We’ll often use breakouts to give you a chance to talk with each other in small groups. And you’ll have the freedom to take the discussion in any direction that works for you and those gathered with you.

    We will share and stick to a set of guidelines that support our shared commitment of creating a safe environment in which everyone is valued and respected. Nothing will ever be forced – you can abstain at any time.

    The gathering is free of charge and everyone is welcome.

    About Your Host

    Rick Gage, PNODN Director of Community, will be your host. Gathering people and building community are central to Rick’s life and business purpose. Driven by an insatiable curiosity, he loves exploring new ideas, making new connections and finding ways to support fellow travelers on their journey.

    OD Workshop - Connecting to Our Humanity at Work


    Todd Porter

    Join us on May 15 from 6-8 PM PT for an interactive webinar led by Todd Porter, a seasoned OD professional. 

    Every workplace is full of humans, multi-dimensional beings with thoughts, values, feelings, needs, and desires, at a minimum. Our work cultures often accept some of these dimensions and reject, or at least ignore, others. In the absence of an intentional, focused effort to do otherwise, we welcome intellect, give lip service to values, minimize needs and desires, and reject feelings. This creates workplaces and cultures that are inhospitable to human habitation, that are dehumanizing.

    What if we made an intentional, effort to accept the full humanity of our coworkers? What if we welcomed not only their intellectual power, but also their values, needs, desires, and emotions? What would change about our workplaces and our societies if they were filled with whole humans who on-purpose welcomed the whole humanity for their friends, neighbors, and coworkers? My contention is that everything would change.

    This workshop presents a set of habits that enable this kind of acceptance, habits that help accept one another as we are and be present to what we are experiencing together. We will also have a chance to practice some of those skills and discuss ways to build our capacity to show up in ways that consistently embody these skills.

    Participants will leave the session with:

    - a model communication process for being present with others,

    - having practiced elements of that model with other participants, and

    - options for building their capacity to connect with other humans.


        About Your Facilitator

        Todd Porter (in his own words)

        Never get a degree in the same field twice. That's my motto, though I only discovered it in retrospect. What I've really been doing is following my curiosity.

        I studied electrical engineering as an undergrad because I was curious about technology and how we might use it to avoid societal collapse when all the oil runs out. I studied music because it does something to my brain that makes it work better for relating, for problem-solving, for living. I was curious about what might happen if I invested my attention in making more music. I studied Positive Organization Development because I was curious about what made people thrive and how we might enable more people to thrive more often by attending to each other. Most recently, I've been studying compassionate communication because I'm curious about what separates us from each other and what we might do differently to bridge that separation.

        As I followed that curiosity, I've applied what I've learned in technical roles, management roles, leadership roles. In commercial ventures like Ideal Impact, Inc., in nonprofit ventures like Mosaic Fort Worth, The Charter for Compassion, Narrative 4, United States Christian Leadership Organization, Kairos Collaborative, and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. In these organizations and others I've designed experiences, designed and applied technology, mobilized people, facilitated learning, and worked to stimulate even more curiosity in myself and those around me.

        I started my professional career working to save energy. In the time since, I've started to wonder whether our society will last long enough to run out of oil, or if we might destroy each other first. I'm curious now about how I might contribute all I've learned to helping people around me (and myself) see the full humanity in one another, how we might connect to that humanity, and how we might stoke the embers of life in one another.

        It's odd to write a professional bio in the first person, isn't it? So be it. I'm hoping it gives you a better picture of who I am than the dates of what I did and in what context, though those details are in [my LinkedIn profile](https://www.linkedin.com/in/todd-porter/) if you want to see them. Biographies are really just stories and I'm writing this one here because I'd like you to be part of it. Let's follow our curiosity together and see how we might connect to one another.

        OD Workshop - The Power of Agency: cultivating autonomy, authority, and leadership in every role


        Fred Miller & Judith Katz

        Join us on May 20 from 4-6 PM PT for an interactive webinar led by the indomitable Fred Miller & the joyous Judith Katz!

        The evolution of the organization and the manager-employee relationship continues. As we think about the next step in that evolution, we believe that the concept of agency needs to be at the center. Most often employees act as “do-ers” with a checker overseeing every significant decision, which makes people feel as if they are not the leader of their job responsibilities. There have been many attempts, some successful in pockets of organizations, to increase the autonomy of employees—to empower them, enable them to do their jobs with little supervision, be knowledge workers—but in many cases organizations have overlaid on that continued control and supervision that limits and, in many cases, smothers the employee and their ability to be the Operations Leader of their job.

        People have written about and acknowledge that many are knowledge workers in organizations, but we treat them the same way as at the height of the Industrial Revolution, like “hands and feet”; only now letting them think but requiring their thinking to be reviewed and checked.

        What is missing is agency, which we define as:

        ensuring all people, of all identities, roles, levels, and tenure have the power, influence, and voice to make choices and decisions related to their jobs and the betterment of the organization.

        In this session they will discuss the concept of agency and the role that OD practitioners can play in cultivating a culture of agency in which every person can take leadership in their role and interactions with others..
