Organizational Workshops

ODL Business Partners, Incorporated

Whether you're dealing with rapid growth, managing down-sizing, or positioning your organization for the future, the direction your organization takes in dealing with these critical business issues, and many more, can make all the difference.  That's where Organizational Workshops can help.  We have two workshops designed to help you lead your group through changes from the small culture shift to full organizational transformations.

The ODL Workshop combines organizational development and leadership development into one exciting day and highlights how and why they go together hand-in-hand for successful team-building, engagement, and change management results.

The Organization Workshop is based on the work of Barry Oshry and brought to you by ODL Business Partners. It's not about listening to pie-in-the-sky theory about people and organizations.  The Organization Workshop's unique learn-by-doing format provides valuable insight to help your organization pull together toward common goals.  It gives you and your team members the tools you need to manage change up, down, and across your organization.  You will gain powerful insights that are needed to manage organizational development changes and increase your organization's profitability.

The ODL 1-Day Workshop


This workshop combines organizational development (OD) and leadership development (LD). OD is the art of making change feel effortless.  The largest barrier to successful change management is a lack of trust between leaders and their employees.


According to a 2016 Edelman Trust Barometer Survey, an estimated 30% of employees do not trust their employer creating many business challenges.  Broken trust between is costing companies billions of dollars annually in reduced productivity.  Conscious leadership is more essential than ever before in maintaining employee trust. For this vital reason, OD and LD are two sides of the same business savvy coin.


OD training gets to the heart of partnership in organizational life. We delve deeply into why partnerships are vital to an organization's success, what gets in the way of partnerships developing and the very important role leaders need to play to make great achievements possible. We help you see your organization as a system so you can strategize with confidence!


This workshop is a combination of our Leadership 360 Workshop and our Organizational Workshop and is a great way to sample both in one day!  We begin this workshop about a week prior to the workshop date when you receive your leadership evaluation tool. During the workshop, we spend the first half of the day reviewing your leadership evaluation, target your personal value system, and help you create a working leadership development plan.  During the second half of the day we move onto OD with an exciting organizational exercise that you will remember for years to come!


This workshop is for:

  • Anyone seeking to begin their personal leadership development journey

  • Business leaders and directors who want to improve their ability to connect with and motivate those who work with them.

  • Young business professionals who want to cultivate a stronger voice.

  • Human Resources consultants who seek to include the new systems-view approach to organizational development strategies.

  • Those who would like to sample part of our Leadership 360 and part of the Organizational Workshop and do it all in one day.

The Organization Workshop / 2-Days

A different way of seeing things!

Just what makes The Organization Workshop so different?  For starters, you don't just talk about these organizational development issues, you live them!  Participants experience first-hand what life is like in other parts of the organizational system.  By design everyone can feel, appreciate, and understand the different levels of an organization, and the worlds that are created within those different levels.

The Organization Workshop is also about more than individual learning.  It's about building human systems that share a common business objective.  A common framework develops that can produce real changes in your organization.  It doesn't just happen by chance.  The experience and learning all grow out of solid organizational development theory based on years of testing and experience.

To make it all happen, The Organization Workshop helps your organization develop robust human systems.  This means giving your people the power and insight to help your organization reach its goals - faster and with less loss of revenue.  This provides a basis for an increase rate of return on your investment by tapping into your company's people dynamics and developing your organization's own robust human system.


Robust human systems are systems that help people work in partnership up, down, and across organizational lines.  Systems that are flexible and able to turn challenges into opportunities!  Systems that share a common mission and vision - and know how to reach their goals.  In the words of past participants, it means real results - people who look at their work and their co-workers more positively, who dig in like never before, who focus their energy not on blaming or finger pointing, but on finding and implementing solutions!

So what exactly happens at The Organization Workshop?

 It's an energizing experience that has been proven effective with hundreds of organizations worldwide!


We could tell you that it is a blend of experiential exercises, we include some cognitive theory, discussions, and application activities.  But that might be misleading.  More accurate would be that it creates a sense of understanding that hits you like a wake-up call!  The experience of identifying systems, beginning to think about systems in a broad way, and being able to see into the worlds of others within the organization with the realization that you do have choices.  You CAN make a difference from any level or position within the organization.

 It's an energizing experience that has been proven effective with hundreds of organizations worldwide!

With a common framework and more mutual understanding and respect across organizational lines and levels, clear practical strategies emerge for working together more effectively.  By working together more energy is available for the task of making your organization more successful and positioned for substantial growth.

Two Days?  Who Has Two Days?

The Organization Workshop is a full two-day program.  However, it is NOT two days away from work.  Participants engage in two days of doing the work of your business or organization in a new setting - a setting that helps everyone deal with the challenger and issues faced by the organization in a powerful, new light.

Participants examine issues and challenges they face back on the job or in their life.  They leave with a strategy for improving their world, both for themselves and for the system in which they work.  For any organization faced with challenges of competition, reorganization and other business issues, it's a small investment of time that can pay dividends for years to come.

The Organization Workshop is for corporations and organizations of any size.  It will reshape the thinking of your teams in private, or public corporations; for profit or not for profit organizations, religious or civic organizations, and even for families!  If you are a professional working in the organizational development and training field -- this is a must for you!

We can bring The Organization Workshop program to you and customize it specifically for your organization, or we can help you build your own team of trainers to run programs in-house at your organization.  We also offer The Organization Workshop program several times each year in various locations - open to the general public.

Your organization may be at a crossroads.  Which is why The Organization Workshop helps you find your organization's own route to success!
