Future Impacts on OD –
Starting Now!

Do you ever leave one of our meetings wishing you could delve more deeply into the discussion?   We do, and in our next meeting that wish will be granted!  At our July luncheon meeting we will further explore some of the future trends suggested last month by Rex Miller, our “futurist” speaker.   We will share ideas about how these trends will affect OD, and what we can do NOW to leverage them!

At the meeting, we’ll take time to share how we see these dynamics playing out in our organizations in OD, Change Management, Training, HR, and/or Leadership development.   Rex talked about several fascinating trends.  We don’t have time to explore them all in depth, so we’ve selected the following topics to discuss at our lunchtime meeting:

  • Employee driven engagement — How to ‘engage the disengaged’ by having employees be responsible for their own engagement?
  • Building ‘organizational intelligence’ such as Purpose IQ and Emotional IQ in a more virtual/mobile workforce?
  • How do we ‘steward the magic’ (like at Google)?  i.e. communicating values, culture, and heroes so new (and existing) people embrace the ‘magic’ of our company?
Please join us for a lively conversation where we explore ways to start leveraging these trends today to prepare ourselves and our workforce for tomorrow – and beyond!

Facilitators:   Glen Earl, OD Specialist at Parkland Health and Hospital System, and Marilyn Sutherland. OD and Change Management Consultant at Noah Consulting.
