    What Exactly is OD? 

    Different people have different definitions and there is rampant confusion about what the term actually means. We won't solve the whole problem in one night, but we're going to map out what the scope of OD looks like to all of those who attend.

    Our February meeting with be a participative session, much like our last meeting. Mapping is a critical tool for every OD professional and the mapping we will do in this meeting is just one of many types of mapping exercises that you can use with your clients.

    Expect a high level of engagement and an opportunity to understand better what types of expertise exist within the New York City OD Network community.

    Let's have some fun! Come out on February 21st. We'll be at Strategies for Wealth, located at 120 Broadway, 37th Floor. New York, NY, and let's mix it up.

    Speed and complexity drive reactivity in leaders. It’s easy to get overwhelmed with the chaotic storming resulting from shifting priorities, ad-hoc emerging needs, and misalignment from unclear information flows. In this webinar, you’ll learn proven strategies for developing leadership under the unique constraints and conditions of VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity).

    You'll learn how to:

    • Recognize the unique characteristics of VUCA conditions
    • Anticipate common reactions to VUCA in leaders and what forms these reactions take
    • Support and develop leaders through coaching and training programs
