From Training to OD – Tiptoeing to a New Opportunity
New Format! Bring-your-own-lunch.
Speaker: Cyndi Tierney
You: A trainer who wants to jump into the world of Organizational Development.
Challenge: How to get experience that you can share and apply to that dream job.
Today’s Mission: Feel—firsthand—a typical customer experience, then frame interventions using an OD perspective. Apply this activity to where you are now and leave with at least two actions you can take to shape your OD arsenal.
Remember, this SIG is open to the public. Why not bring several friends? Non-ATD members pay only $10.
In this session, you will leave with:
- An operational definition of OD and typical components used in the workplace
- Insight on OD skills you currently have and are not fully owning
- Two actions you will do to expand and develop your OD footprint.
