Shaney-Ann C.
Module 2 gave me the awareness of how I ‘show up’ in group dynamics and the importance/impact that this will have on my practice as an OD Practitioner.
Julia S.
The program enhanced my toolkit as an OD Practitioner and confidence to try new methods – allowing me to take some of the learning and immediately apply it into the OD interventions at my company with leaders, teams and the organization overall.
Rachel C.
Enjoyable and challenging. Useful mix of group/pair/small group and individual work and reflection. Good opportunity to focus on ‘me! Engaging course and content with likeminded delegates. A good venue and programme.
