    Oasis Conversations with Ann Van Eron

    • December 8, 2016
      5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

    Are you an open-minded person? Of course you are! It’s other people who are the problem, right? Sometimes trying to communicate with them is frustrating, drains your energy, and feels nearly impossible.

    But guess what? Those people think they are open-minded too, and they probably think you’re the problem.

    What if you could turn the desert of miscommunication that exists into an oasis where you can have refreshing conversations that will lead to empathy, insight and reach mutually beneficial agreements?

    Join Ann Van Eron as she draws on scientific brain research and her years of coaching experience to teach ODNC the OASIS Conversations process to achieving mind-opening connections with others.

    Find out why global organizations, Fortune 500 corporations, and even families are benefitting from the OASIS Conversations process.

    • Learn how to minimize misunderstandings and reap amazing results.
    • Learn to lead with an open mindset to ensure unparalleled results.

    The OD Business Partner

    • The OD Business Partner
      March 8, 2018
      5:15 pm - 8:45 pm

    Program Summary

    We will explore a new term — “OD Business Partner” –and provide a method whereby you can observe three (3) experienced OD consultants and their clients work together. These three client-consultant pairs will describe the clients’ needs, methods used and features of their work together. After each of the three iterations you and your small table group will process what you saw and note concepts or methods you might want to use. Each table group will have the opportunity to ask one question of the client-consultant pair. In doing this we will come to a initial definition of the term “OD Business Partner”

    Each consultant-client pair works with a framework completely different and distinct from the others. You will watch and listen to them speak of how they work together and hear the benefits of their methods. From this, you will be able to put new tools and techniques into the way you work with others.

    NOTE:  This program starts a little earlier and ends a little later than usual.  Of course, if you have to leave earlier than 8:45, that is fine.

    Why you should attend:

    • You will see and learn new ways to support your clients regardless of your role in the field of organization development.
    • You will see new ways of working that give you new techniques and methods to expand your effectiveness.
    • You will be able to expand your own development plan to become more creative, more effective in your professional work.

    Presenting Client-Consultant Pairs:

    Tim Foley, Director, Talent and Development, Navistar, with Bob Verner, Ph.D., Senior OD Business Partner, Navistar.

    Jan Viano, Executive Vice President, First Midwest Bank, with Caryn Guinta, Chief Human Resources Officer, First Midwests Bank, retired.  Guinta is presently principal in her own consulting firm.

    Boost Your Change Intelligence/CQ to Increase Your Influence, Impact, and Ability to Get Results

    You know your IQ, you’ve probably heard of EQ, but what’s your CQ?  Just as each of us communicates, collaborates and handles conflict in our own ways, so do we each have our own style of leading change.  And just as we are more effective in working with others when we understand ourselves, we can be more competent and confident in leading change when we understand the various change leadership styles.  Through real-life examples, you will

    • Reframe resistance from enemy to ally, resulting in less stress and frustration for you and your colleagues in the change process
    • Learn the seven change leader styles and assess your own
    • Appreciate the strengths and blind spots of your current style while identifying targeted opportunities to develop your skills
    • Determine ways to adapt your style to ensure you are positively influencing your key stakeholders
    • Develop your Change Intelligence to lead successful and sustainable change for your organization or client.

    Expand Your Impact: An Experiment with OD Peers – Support, Strategy & Influence

    • October 12, 2017
      5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

    As we each support others who are facing today’s accelerating change, here is a chance to coach each other in making a greater difference. It begins in this peer coaching evening; you may continue to sharpen your impact in three online peer coaching sessions over the next three months.

    The evening starts with two of the latest models of impact and effectiveness, the Strategic Action System and OASIS Conversations. In small groups, we will each review a project we face, large or small, exploring potentially larger outcomes we may achieve and next steps we can take.

    This ODNC experiment in action learning will continue in a small virtual group: two online Zoom interactions and a one-to-one peer coaching phone call will be scheduled over the next two months for those who let us know they are interested.
