CBODN is excited to announce that we are partnering with Dr. Michael Broom and the Center for Human Systems to offer a series of MASTER CLASSES in Organization Development

Class # 1 Conscious Use of Self

Unfold your ability to make intentional and deliberate choices that will create the impacts you intend! Then do the same for your clients! Boost your skill at managing your own beliefs, thoughts, and emotions to help your clients do the same! This is the heart of organization development.

Saturday, July 22, 2017, 9-3pm

Historic Oakland Manor, Sterrett Room, 5430 Vantage Point Rd, Columbia, MD 21044

Class # 2 Making Group-Level Interventions Work 

Develop your ability to make interventions at the group level. Group-level interventions have the power to improve dysfunctional norms and cultures more than any collection of individual interventions. Deepen your understanding of human Systems. Organization development’s emphasis on human systems makes it the most powerful technology that exists for managing change. It differentiates OD from less useful forms of change management. This is the power of organization development.

Class # 3 Making A Difference Means Not Giving Your Clients What They Ask For

Learn the skills to turn the requests of uninformed clients into meaningful OD projects. Your desire to give clients what they ask for can be very hard to resist. Learning to recognize and avoid your contracting pitfalls is crucial! Dr. Broom can trace every one of his failed consulting opportunities to ineffective contracting. He can also trace every one of his successes to catalyzing effective contracting and re-contracting throughout his client’s systems. This is the work of organization development.

Saturday, August 26, 9-3pm

Founders Hall, George Mason University Arlington Campus, Room 207
