Questions Include:

  • As we re-enter the office environment and begin to return to our 'new normal', what are some of the biggest challenges for HR pros when working with leadership towards aligning their organization with their strategic agenda and managing huge changes as a result of Covid?
  • What skills does an effective OD practitioner require to manage a disparate and global employee base?
  • When done in the right ways, what can an OD intervention, delivered by a seasoned OD practitioner, give to an organization? What if it's not delivered in accordance with the specific culture of an organization? What could go wrong?
  • Many HR professionals can benefit from an objective breakdown and analysis of their processes to rebuild them into something better. How can HR pros, through relatively simple exercises, start to master the tools of design thinking?
