Ecotone - Dialogic OD 02.1

“Dialogic Organization Development is a compelling alternative to the classical action research approach to planned change. Organizations are seen as fluid, socially constructed realities that are continuously created through conversations and images—change happens when those conversations and images change. Leaders and consultants can help foster, support, or accelerate the emergence of transformational possibilities by encouraging disruptions to taken-for-granted ways of thinking and acting and the use of generative images to stimulate new organizational conversations and narratives. Dialogic OD is a different mindset, but it’s also the previously unrecognized underpinning of such diverse change methods as Appreciative Inquiry, the Art of Convening, Future Search, and many more” (Berrett-Koehler Publishers)

The event will not only present key ideas in the book but we want to go further and facilitate meaningful conversation relying on everyone’s local practitioner knowledge. To this end chapter contributor and narrative practitioner, Chene Swart, will be joining us for the morning.

The book is FREE for those who register before 10h00 on Wednesday,20 October 2015!

Ecotone HeaderAn ecotone is a transition area between two biomes. It is where two communities meet and integrate. It may be narrow or wide, and it may be local (the zone between a field and forest) or regional (the transition between forest and grassland ecosystems).

An ecotone may appear on the ground as a gradual blending of the two communities across a broad area, or it may manifest itself as a sharp boundary line. Wikipedia
