An OD Intervention for the OD Practice
February 10, 2022
6:15 PM

There’s a new word making the rounds in the boardrooms of the world today. That word is transformation. Our society, our organizations, and the OD practice itself are shaking, with everything shifting above, beneath, and on the sides of OD.

It is here that we find ourselves in a state of constant transformation. Our human brain is built for predictability and is always checking if there is anything not the way it’s supposed to be, if there are any new dangers to ourselves and our organizations.

OD consultants seek to find predictable problems in an endless sea of unpredictability, but we find ourselves in a Brave New World where change and unpredictability are constant and with that, our brain’s ability to adapt quickly, is instead quickly overcome. The precipitator is COVID, but the variables were long in existence waiting to form. During this event we will look to the past for proven practices, mirror the present as we look at the current state of OD, and finally envision the future.
