Helping or Hindering? How do we make the most of a consulting relationship?
27th February 6 pm at Graduate House
We are pleased to announce that Mr Paul Dunstone is the presenter for our first event in 2018. Paul’s co-facilitator will be Kaliopi Tsousis.
Here we are at the beginning of a new year and it seems timely to consider the roles we play and how we take them up before the busy gets us! For so many of us, our work centres on helping others – whether individuals, teams or organisations. How do we make sure what we do helps, not hinders?
Relationships are core, and many lessons can be learned from OD gurus like Ronald and Gordon Lippett to guide our consulting relationships in purposeful, meaningful ways. Come join us for a hands-on evening to consider the consulting roles and phases they describe and apply it to your work practice straight away.
We’d love to have you with us as we launch our 2018 program; you told us what you were keen for ODA to provide and we listened! Thank you. So, come join us for a hands-on evening to consider the consulting roles and phases they describe and apply it to your work practice straight away.
