OD Network Annual Planning Meeting

Our November Meeting is a facilitated event designed to collectively answer the question: “What programs do we most want for our 2014 DFW OD Network Monthly Meetings?”

Each of us will have the opportunity to recommend ideas and participate in deciding the twelve topics for our 2014 programming.  So — what topics are most important, meaningful and relevant for you?  Here are some questions to help stimulate your thinking:

  • What topic in the OD field are you most interested in?
  • What information do you need to know in order to stay current?
  • What is a strategic issue that you would like to learn more about?
  • What is a major challenge that you are facing in your work?
  • What is a new program idea that you would like our chapter to try?
  • What information would help you succeed in your work?

2014 marks the 20th anniversary of the DFW OD Network!  Let’s make our 2014 programs the best ever!  Bring your ideas, energy and a spirit of collaboration!  Consume copious amounts of pizza and non-alcoholic beverages!  Network with your professional colleagues!  Learn more about what’s going on in our profession!  Learn several facilitation methods and techniques!   (Note: This kind of planning is for everyone, not just ‘the usual suspects’!   Come and see how Jeff makes it both fun and interesting!)

Facilitator:  Jeff Bracken  is an organizational transformation and performance improvement consultant.  He is a Founding Member of the DFW OD Network, a Certified Management Consultant through the Institute of Management Consultants, a Member of the Board of Examiners for the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program, a Member of the Training Faculty for the Quality Texas Foundation, and a Mentor Trainer and Facilitator of the Technology of Participation (ToP®) facilitation methods through the Institute of Cultural Affairs.

We look forward to seeing you November 14 at the University of Dallas!
