    Why Mindset Matters

    Start your morning with this fun learning session! Connect with the larger OD community, meet Central Ohio business leaders, and sharpen your learning edge. 

    Organizations are commonly facing challenges including poor collaboration, break-downs in trust, and disengagement from employees. A common action is to look to solve these challenges through training - an encouragement or requirement to shift behavior of the individuals potentially causing the problems. We are left baffled and frustrated when the training doesn’t ‘stick’ and behaviors revert. During this morning CCODN event, Lisa Beaty and Elyse Wampler from OCLC’s Organization Development and Learning team, will share what OCLC is doing to enable behavior change through a shift in mindset resulting in the emergence of new behaviors having an impact of trust, collaboration, accountability and culture shift. We will discuss how we are incorporating the work of the Arbinger Institute’s Developing and Implementing and Outward Mindset, Outward Leadership, and Spot Coaching with Hudson Institute. A book will be provided by The Arbinger Institute!

    Tips and Tools for Inclusive Conversations

    The challenges being faced at the Ohio Department of Public Safety, are not unusual.  These include: Lack of and missed communication, silos and silo thinking, team conflict and difficult relationships, change and transition.  The Public Safety, Learning and Development unit continues to search for, experiment with, create and introduce a range of tools and processes to strengthen a culture in which important ideas are shared and voices (even quiet ones) can be heard.    During our time together, we’ll share some of these resources and how we’re using them.  This session will be a success if you come away with some practical ideas that help strengthen safe space and a culture of inclusion in your organization.  It’ll be phenomenally successful if we continue to learn from and share with each other beyond this session.

    Facilitators: David Sapper & Valerie Gladden
