Experimenting a Different Mindset through the Questions
We ask as Organization Designers
Our sincere apologies to everyone for the inconvenience, but we have had to reschedule our next webinar on “Generative Questions for Organization Design”, from March 23rd to April 20th at 1.00 pm EDT.
We hope very much that this new date will work better for our European colleagues as well as our North American friends. For those of you who have already registered for this webinar, we hope also that this date will work for you, and we encourage you to reach out and invite your contacts to join us. The richness of the conversation is greatly increased with the number of participants and we would love to ensure that this session goes above and beyond your expectations.
Here again is what Jean Fuller wishes to convey about the intentions of this webinar that he and his colleague, Jacinthe Bergevin have designed…
After more than 25 years of organization redesign practice, like many of you, I have been witnessing the emergence of a more complex world in which organization redesign is perceived as a very costly, time consuming and energy draining initiative.
While I have never doubted on the need to redesign organizations so they are more humane, productive and effective, this has brought me to examine how I carry out my work. I began to QUESTION THE QUESTIONS I ask when going through the redesign methodologies at my disposal. I discovered that some of my most basic assumptions needed to be challenged (BIG TIME!).
I came to realize that most of the questions I use are deficit-based, that is aimed at discovering gaps or problem areas. These take lots of time to process for a host of reasons because they call for extensive, time consuming conversations and create resistance since few people want to be part of a problem.
In the webinar I am inviting you to attend on April 20, 2016 at 13:00 EDT, I will share with you the lessons I have learned. With Jacinthe Bergevin, whose expertise is in Appreciative Inquiry, we will explore how generative questions can “fast-track” the organization redesign process for quicker, more engaging and more lasting results.
Please note that to fully benefit from this webinar, a minimum of 12 participants are required.
So, for those of you who haven’t registered yet, please JOIN US on April 20th!
