Foundations of Organizational Development

 

Organizational leaders, external consultants, and HR professionals

Organizational leaders, external consultants, and HR professionals are called on to help design change efforts, shift mindsets, and enhance delivery of results. They often do this with insufficient awareness of dynamics undermining performance, or the behavioral science concepts and practices that increase adaptive capacity.

This global workshop demonstrates the relationship of behavioral science research, theories, and tools for increased health and effectiveness at every level of the organization.
