February: Return on Energy – Powering OD (02/21/13)

Return on Energy® – the Power behind Organizational Development

What makes an organization tick? Can all the parts really work together — harmoniously? How do different people with different thinking and communication styles align themselves to common group objectives that benefit the business as a whole?

February’s speaker Michael Rose has observed a pattern in business.  After seeing the ROE Methodology you will observe things differently too.  We will discuss three areas:

1. ROE Map Learn a simple and effective Way to gain insight within any organization. ROE is the DNA of any business organization.

2. ROE Org Chart You will learn a new organizational chart; the top down model is antiquated. An organization is like an organism; all parts within the cell must be healthy and work together to thrive. When a threat enters or existing parts become compromised, the remaining cell parts must pick up the slack in order to return to a healthy state. If not, the organism becomes compromised and might not survive.

3. ROE GapYou will learn what “in-over-your-head” and “growing-pains” within a business really mean. Two gaps exist — the company gap and the individual gap. When individuals close their gap, the organization grows. Then the individual gaps widen and the process starts all over again.
