August Monthly Meeting Convergence Squared
With Bob Preziosi
Convergence On-the-fly….Getting the most for your client and yourself
Both internal and external OD practitioners can maximize results for a client when they attain convergence in the engagement. Oftentimes, we are so busy getting things done that we lose a sense of the need for convergence. Even when we maintain a focus on all the process issues to the same degree as the task issues, convergence can be elusive. Since the sense of alignment that convergence brings is so powerful, perhaps we should pay more attention to it. How do you do that? One answer lies in our presentation entitled Convergence Squared and discussion that follows.
The Objectives for the Presentation include:
1. To identify and define the 4 elements of convergence
2. To discuss the relationship between convergence and trust
3. To use a tool to assess convergence
We will be describing the OD consultant role, their values and behaviors as well as doing the same for our clients. Our analysis will enable us to focus on the nature of the relationship and aspects of engagement. We will determine what must change in order to ensure culture flows for both.
Our presenter for the session will be Dr. Bob Preziosi. Bob will be sharing his newest thoughts on successful OD interventions. Bob is currently a Professor of Management at NSU. Bob’s first trek into OD was 3 decades ago. He has worked as an internal and external OD consultant. He brings us to bear down on the subject with his experience as an academic executive and professor, business executive, consultant, author, and researcher. He has been honored as 1 of 50 quintessential adult educators for the 21st century. He is the only person to ever receive the TORCH Award twice from ASTD.
Come join us to get enlightened and determine what you can do to better the relationship with your OD clients. We are looking forward to an exciting evening with lots of personal growth opportunities and insights.
Hope to see you there.
