Improving Organisational Development

Whether you work as an individual consultant, or transforming your own organisation, this unique Community of Practice will help you develop and deepen your knowledge, skills and networks for increased impact.

Some of the questions that change agents face today:

  • How do I stay energised and purposeful in my practice?
  • How do I build and sustain my resources as an ‘instrument of change’ for organisational success?
  • How do I help my organisation make wise choices to bring about high impact transformation?
  • How do I develop metrics that value human relations?
  • How do I work with the tension between the need for quick fixes and deeper culture change?
  • How can I apply systems thinking to my work, connecting purpose, process, people, performance and planet?

We are launching a unique Community of Practice for OD practitioners. It will blend facilitated supervision, peer-based learning, individual-focused development and inspiring practice. We will pursue opportunities to learn through experiential, improvisational, participative and co-creative approaches.

Oasis has successfully worked with many practitioners and organisations to provoke new thinking. We co-design, develop and apply OD interventions and approaches, which have enabled successful transformation and the achievement of goals. We have particular experience in peer-based and facilitated supervision.
