(WEBINAR) Cultivating Organizations to Thrive: Intro to Organizational Development

CE Type: 
# of CE's: 
0.3 IACET CE's

This course provides participants with a thorough overview of Organizational Development (OD) by examining the core components of OD: culture, climate, employees, leadership, strategy, and structure. Too often organizations focus only on their strategy and operating model because they seem easier to change, but we need to shift our traditional focus to culture and employee’s well-being because culture dictates how people behave far more than strategy or operating models. Culture comprises employees' behaviors and such behaviors advance strategic aspirations. Additionally, participants will learn about neuroscientific concepts, such as cognitive dissonance and flow, that are essential to consider when developing culture. This webinar will provide participants with tangible methods and techniques for implementing best research practices into daily operations to cultivate organizational impact.
