    Designing Agile, High Performance Organizations

    • November 10, 2016
      5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

    Many factors impact the performance of an organization – one of the major drivers is the design of the organization – structure, roles, processes, metrics, technology, people-talent, culture. Organizations are like complex machines that have multiple elements that must come together in the right way to effectively and efficiently deliver the desired end-result.

    Designing organizations can be complex and challenging:

    Where should I start?
    How do I link the elements of the organization together?
    How do I ensure they are aligned to the strategy of the organization?
    Many business leader’s inclinations are to draw an organization chart and focus on the organizational structure and believe the other elements of an organization – roles, policies, processes, skills & talent, metrics, goals, technology, culture, etc.. will fall into place.

    It is not until after they have launched the restructure and confusion and chaos ensues they then attend to other elements of an organization and try to patchwork the organization together.

    There’s got to be a better way!

    Transforming and restructuring an organization requires a systematic approach to designing the organization and aligning it to the strategy and desired outcomes.

    Come and learn:

    1. Keys to successful organizational redesign

    2. Steps to designing a high performing organization

    3. How to integrate change management strategies in the organization design process

    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

    • 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.
