Who should attend
This program is designed for those who play a change facilitation and/or Organizational Development role, and who need to build relationships with a diverse range of people across different functions. Participants will benefit if they are an HR practitioner, leadership and development or OD specialist, project leader, or change agent—but the program will be useful for anyone wanting to learn about the field of Organization Development and the latest thinking around change.
About the course
Better understand your own role in change, and the inter-dependencies of your wider context. This blended program is highly practical and will equip participants with a thorough understanding of what Organizational Development (OD) is.
Participants on this program will:
- Better understand your own role in change, and the interdependencies of your wider context
- Learn about yourself in the change process, explore the notions of leader/follower, hierarchy, power, and the process of change
- Explore the nature of change and the relationship of cause/effect across the spectrum of change, giving you a greater range and confidence in the appropriate tools and techniques to apply when working with individuals, teams, or whole organizations
The program is highly participative and will have a strong emphasis on practice. Participants will return to their organizations with both a solid theoretical understanding of the latest thinking in OD and change as well as some practical skills to apply in their workplace.
