I was sitting at a meeting the other day reviewing a proposal with a potential client about how to improve collaboration across branches and divisions. As I was sitting there the President expressed his confusion to a few members of his senior team about why they had to bring in an external consultant, “didn’t we hire an HR person”. His comment alone demonstrated the need to develop a shared understanding of these two different and sometimes overlapping concepts. My hope in this article is not to tell you the difference between OD and HR but only my perspective on the differences.

Who are you?Funny what this question of “who are you” raises and how we typically write it from the third person and ambitiously include “what we do” believing that “we are what we do”. My first thought here speaks largely to who I am, as one who loves to explore, reflect, and see things from many different perspectives.
