The OD SIG is back!
Organizational change! We deal with it in our work every day, in three roles: (1) Change Leader/Champion/Visionary; (2) Change Manager/Director; and (3) Human Change Agent/OD Practitioner. Depending on an organization’s design, these roles might have different names – and some jobs might require an individual to take on two or even three of the roles!
In this session, we will begin our focus on the practice of OD and its place in organizations. We’d also like to know what challenges and interests are out there. If you are registering for this session, please take a moment fill out this survey. It will be very helpful in identifying the strongest interests and challenges we should explore. Using this information as a springboard, we can work together to strategize our subjects for future meetings.
Your OD-SIG host is Deb Tobey, Ed.D:
Deb has been a practitioner/educator for over 20 years in the fields of human performance improvement, workplace learning and development, organization development/organizational change, and consultation skills. She has been fortunate to be able to “practice what she teaches and teach what she practices.” As a practitioner, she managed an OD practice for 15 years, and then worked as Director of OD/Talent Management in two financial organizations and the State of Tennessee. During those years she served as an adjunct faculty member at Vanderbilt University and George Washington University, teaching courses in the practice subjects listed above. She then taught in a full-time faculty role for 8 years in the professional Leadership & Organizational Performance program at Vanderbilt University, again in the same subject areas. Deb has authored/co-authored three books in our field.
