Rethinking ‘Organization Development’
Exploring a ‘conscious living systems approach’ to individual and organizational transformation
The ‘field of OD,’ which enjoyed considerable legitimacy in the ‘70s through the ‘90s, seems to have lost its mojo. Yet, at the same time, organizations today face a plethora of complex developmental challenges requiring whole-system, generative change approaches that OD practitioners could become masterful at. Consider these key challenges facing today’s organizational leaders:
- How do we engage the deepest passions and gifts of our people – their highest potential? *
- How do we grow our organization’s capacity for rapid learning and change in the world that is increasingly non-linear and volatile?
- How do we develop distributed leadership capable of successfully addressing increasingly complex, whole-system challenges?
Helping organizations address such challenges requires that we break outside the box of our traditional approaches to development. Today’s challenges call on OD practitioners to begin developing themselves as social architects capable of supporting organizations in the domains of systemic capacity building and lasting generative change.
