In a world of polarization, rapid change, and the demands on organizations for speed and significantly higher levels of individual and team performance, the need for greater inclusion in organizations to achieve that breakthrough performance is more critical than ever before. In this course we will focus on the application of dialogic OD principles and frameworks to disrupt the prevailing narrative and engage an organization and its members to embrace new ways of operating and interacting that foster greater inclusion, leverage differences, and ensure equity.
The course will include panels of both leaders and consultants who have successfully engaged change that creates new generative images to evolve the new narrative and will share their lessons learned and provide stories of key learnings in the journey of change. Additionally, Fred and Judith will bring their experience spanning 51 years of being part of change in organizations around the globe in all sectors of the workforce that support new narratives which enable every person to do their best work and support individual, team, and organizational performance. This course will also provide participants with an opportunity to hone themselves? as change agents. They will learn, grow, and apply techniques that will enhance their influence as agents of change in their own organizations and in everyday life. Specifically, we will look at the conditions needed to disrupt the prevailing organizational narrative for rapid change; strategies and interventions to create a new generative image and the application to participants’ organizations to live the new narrative.
