Your Invitation to Leadership:The BCODN is looking for a few new board members for the 2016/2017 year. 

I am proud to be able to tell you that you have a wonderful Board of Directors at BCODN. They are a group of dedicated, smart, capable, and frankly, enjoyable people. We have carried on the new format of having two people for some positions and have found it to work very well.

You may recall that BCODN was a sponsor of the Art of Leadership in 2015. Dr. Liane Davey was one of the speakers at that event, and she has agreed to do a virtual interview and learning session with BCODN on January 18th at noon.

World Cafe

This report reviews the themes generated from the BC ODN’s World Café discussions. The attendees provided 96 answers to three questions about today’s business leaders’ challenges, the value OD professionals offer, and potential practices OD professionals need to learn or could add value to organizations. The attendees’ answers were organized into themes with brief descriptions. The review of the themes suggested there are areas in need of further discussion and exploration and areas where OD professional practices do not align with business leaders’ needs and interests.

Introduction
Transformational Learning can be defined as an internal shift in our belief system that is fundamental to our precepts and resultant behaviour. I think of this as an “inside-out” shift in worldviews and frames of reference such that never before considered action becomes a possibility. Succinctly stated,

Change Ahead
OD is often confused with Change Management. Are they the same? As OD professionals we can be confused ourselves. The field of OD has identity issues. Just ask an OD practitioner to describe what they do, and you will hear many different responses. OD is often confused with change management and like other OD professional associations(Worley & McCloskey,n.d), the BC OD Network struggles with its identity and helping our members articulate OD.
 
Without question, OD is about change; planned systemic approaches to improving an organization.
