Peter Sorensen Jr., Ph.D., receives landmark award from largest international association in field of Organization Development

LISLE, Ill., Oct. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Peter Sorensen Jr., Ph.D., a world-recognized Organization Development (OD) pioneer and professor at Benedictine University, has received yet another accolade to add among his many honors as a distinguished scholar who has helped prepare hundreds of managers and executives to successfully organize and implement change for more than five decades.

In recognition of his lasting impact in the field, Sorensen was honored with the Organization Development Network's prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award on Monday, October 16.

The award is given to individuals who have served the profession over an extended period of time, have earned the respect and admiration of professional colleagues and have freely engaged not only contemporaries, but also have been committed to maintain a dynamic connection to all generations of OD practitioners.

"Peter is an icon," said Therese Yaeger, Ph.D., a professor and colleague of Sorensen's. "He has literally been teaching in this field of study from the very beginning and has not only produced a mountain of work on the subject, but has helped launch the careers of a great number of men and women, many of whom are now widely considered among the most influential of OD practioners. People come to Benedictine from all around the world just to meet and learn from him because his enthusiasm for what he does is so infectious and inspiring. This award affirms his life's work and is much deserved."
