    January Event: Employee experience in the virtual office of the future.

    As more companies move away from pricey commitments to brick-and-mortar stores and offices, they create opportunities for new and innovative ways to collaborate. A key outcome is the emergence and rise of the virtual team. How is this impacting the key elements of employee engagement, including leadership and essential values? Please join this informative and interactive session. Together we’ll seek potential solutions for this business imperative.


    Doug Wanamaker founded ProDevLever to pursue his passion for developing creative thinking skills and emotional intelligence in workforce professionals through interactive programs meant to strengthen competencies to generate value in every endeavor.

    Prior to the launch of ProDevLever, Doug served as an organization development professional for a Fortune 100 multinational corporation. He directed corporate-wide programs dedicated to incremental achievements with workforce effectiveness, continuous improvement teams, leadership competencies building, and employee services satisfaction, while controlling the annual budget accounts to fund them. Early in his career, Doug developed expertise in multiple human resources domains including employee on-boarding, recruiting, and policy administration while serving in smaller sized corporations.

    Doug holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration – Human Resource Management from The Ohio State University. He is certified to administer assessments, deliver training programs, and facilitate real-world application in workforce disciplines including innovation, behavioral types, leadership competencies, concern resolution, and inclusion. Linkage, Inc. recognizes Doug for successful completion of their Intensive Organizational Development Certificate Program.

    His professional affiliations include the Society for Human Resource Management, the Organization Development Network, and the Association for Talent Development. He is the past President of the Human Resource Association, a student organization at The Ohio State University.

    Here's a video to get us thinking.

    February Event: Navigating Power & Politics to Deliver Results

    As leaders, we've all experienced the challenges of managing conflict, defining risk and achieving project goals.

    In this session, Gary will share an overview of his methodology, the Business Triad®, designed to orchestrate effective organizational change based on needed business changes as follows:

    • Development of a business case for needed changes based on “as-is” status and “to-be” desired goals within the business itself.
    • In parallel, personality and team assessments for an “as-is” status and “to-be” desired goals. This work informs the organizational changes needed to achieve the goals in the business case.
    • Leadership and project management to implement the needed changes.

    As participants we will:

    • Learn strategies for holding stakeholders accountable
    • Learn steps to define and and understand the limits of our influence and capability in the current circumstances
    • Understand the importance of connecting our work back to a business case
    • Understand where changes are needed for success to occur, and when all else fails, when it’s time to plan an exit strategy


    Gary Monti (PMP #14) has worked in change management as a teacher, mentor, and consultant since 1978, establishing his firm, Center for Managing Change, in 1984. He has developed a proprietary change management process, The Business Triad®, which addresses changes needed from 3 perspectives:

    • the business case for the change
    • the project management needed to implement needed changes, and
    • the people and politics underpinning all activities

    His work has taken him around the world working in such industries as telecommunications, IT, banking, pharmaceuticals, robotics, and construction, to name a few.

    March Event: A Conversation with Brandi Lust

    What happens when organizations approach professional development and personal development as a common pursuit? Join us as we dig into art and science behind positive change in the workplace. More details to come.

Through both her work and her writing she helps schools, businesses, and individuals lower stress, build resilience, and create more connection through tools like mindfulness and social-emotional learning.

Her clients include The Ohio State University, the Columbus Museum of Art, The Wexner Center for the Arts, Equality Ohio, Americorp, and many school districts and businesses throughout Central Ohio.
