In any Organisation Development role, your most powerful tool is yourself. It follows, then, that in order to become powerful practitioners, we need to understand and develop ourselves. A career in Organisation Development is a life-long apprenticeship; so where do we begin, and what strengths should we build on?
Many practitioners feel that their clients do not ‘get’ the value they offer. Or they find themselves grappling with power dynamics in what should be collaborative partnerships. Developing confidence as a practitioner is vital if you are to create successful collaborative partnerships.
As developers of organisations, living with change and ambiguity daily, we are aware of the vast possibilities in the organisation’s development. Through this module, you will learn how to work with these ambiguities and possibilities.
Through Personal Development, you will develop an understanding of Organisation Development values and their evolution, and reflect on your own alignment to these values; enabling you to work ethically and effectively with the dynamics and power relationships in your role as a practitioner. You will be challenged to deepen your self-awareness as a practitioner, helping you to get out of your own way and bring your best self to work.
