This training will be conducted live via Zoom. The zoom meeting details will be sent out 24hr prior to the training.
This meeting is for people in the network (and their friends!) to learn more about how Appreciative Inquiry can be used to frame conversations and actions around JEDI, and how to deepen our work beyond JEDI into spaces of justice and belonging.
At this point in our collective journey, it is simply not enough to set goals around moving away from white supremacy and the patriarchal systems that have allowed inequity to thrive. We must have something to move TO, a clear vision of what is possible, and the capacity to see ourselves as agents capable of moving to that best possible future. AI helps us get there.
In this event, I would like to introduce this frame, and then have some experiential conversations about justice and equity using AI. We will overview some of the AI principles, particularly the Anticipatory Principle, as well as have small group discussions on how to apply this work in our organizations and practices.
At the end of this session participants will gain:

Special ODN Lifetime Achievement Award Presenters
Live via zoom meeting.
We have seen how the pandemic and Black Lives Matter has unfrozen organizations and led them to their current choice points—how much are organizations taking this opportunity to truly transform or trying to get back to the ways they were? How are organizations using this moment for strategic culture change and to have breakthroughs in their culture and how they work? Additionally, what is our role as OD consultants and professionals in working with organizations who have been unfrozen?

"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.

FIRO Theory: Profoundly Simple, Eminently Practical
This session is online via Zoom Meeting
Many people know FIRO Theory as a model for understanding interpersonal behavior. But did you know that it is also an overarching theory that you can use in your OD practice? FIRO (Fundamental Interpersonal Relations Orientation) not only helps to explain interpersonal relationships, but it is also used to understand the stages of team and organizational development.
In this interactive session, Ethan Schutz returns to PNODN to illustrate how this very simple theory can help you to:

OD Consultants are critical in helping larger organizations become healthier and more efficient.
The Challenge: Corporate decision-makers don’t know how you (the OD Consultant) can help them. Additionally, most OD professionals are trained in how to help organizations rather than how to market.

Participants will gain 5 concrete take-aways that they can implement immediately. This program will show your members how to:
