Topic-Deepening Format


Politics in Organizations (Part 2)

How the most subtle skill of leadership is all about PLAY... and DIALOGUE


Our February session will followup on our lively (and playful) January session, with a brief primer on Appreciative Inquiry, and move quickly into a practice of it to explore, expand upon, and deepen our understanding of Politics in Organizations.


Our intent is to refine this format into an OD-SIG standard. We will use it to expand on topics of demonstrated potential, like "Politics" was at the January session. It will also help us to create freestanding sessions "using OD techniques to explore OD issues," making attendance at the first session on "Politics" of secondary importance; our February session is an Appreciative Inquiry practice session.


Rich and rewarding dialogue is a long standing OD-SIG value. These new, topic-deepening sessions will be in service to the tradition!
