"Close Encounters"

with Organizational Culture


This month we continue to build our collaborative observation of culture in organizations. On June 7, we will step outside the more familiar lenses used, examples of which from our recent discussions included behavior-inspired culture change, and the use of research-driven cultural dimensions.

Since we all know that real world encounters with culture are seldom so comfortably packaged, this next discussion will take us to a different edge (SFX: theme, Twilight Zone) with participatory exercises to inform and test our abilities to drop, select, or shift lenses appropriate to our roles as coaches, team developers, or organizational change agents.

Our Process

Our intent is to work as much as possible with direct input from our attendees. Our June meeting will present some framing tools and will utilize them in both full group and small group discussions. This session like all others will demonstrate techniques used by OD professionals.

(aka pre-work!)

What are 2 or 3 things you think are true about organizations?

What are the roots of these beliefs?

(Hints: Sources may be impressions from your first or an important job, school or church experiences, or dynamics in your family of origin.)

Ongoing themes for 2013:

How might considerations of the more accessible concept of "individual soul," illuminate a newer idea like "organizational soul?"

How might the more familiar inquiry into "organizational culture,"

open a newer understanding

like "individual culture?"

How do soul and culture, whether individual or organizational, impact our work as OD professionals?

In what ways should we, as OD professionals, hope to impact either soul or culture... at individual, team or organizational levels?


OD SIG's purpose
is to provide a forum for
both internal and external practitioners in OD and performance consulting to acquire and share knowledge of experiences, best practices, trends, and methodologies/tools
in the OD profession.
