Special Event Workshop & ODA October Event

Standing at the Threshold: The Future of OD Is Now

This highly interactive session offers an intimate opportunity to explore the future of OD with Dr David Drake. He will share highlights from recent presentations at places like Google in Silicon Valley that offer glimpses into where the field is heading, particularly in terms of leadership development and change.

The workshop will be run like one of his Narrative Design Labs in that the frameworks you learn will be used for the design of the session itself. For example, we will meet in a circle and emphasize socially supported yet self-directed learning as part of a broader DIYT (Do It Yourself Together) philosophy.

The October ODA Event will follow the workshop with Dr Drake:
