Message from the OD Network Board of Trustees Chair

A Network of Networks

Hello friends,

OD Network is aNetwork of Networks— nice catchy slogan, but what does it mean? And what does it mean for Network members? We know from our own OD practice that organizations are stronger when they seek diverse engagement to work toward common goals. So we apply that to ODN. As aNetwork of Networks, we can provide our members with more opportunities and benefits when we convene and partner with other organizations whose goals align with ours. We can't achieve our mission to advance the practice and theory of OD in a vacuum, that's for sure.

We've used thisNetwork of Networksexpression for a while now, and we continue to make it our reality. Here are a few of our more recent examples:

  • ODN has re-launched its efforts to serve as a hub for regional organizations around the world. 50+ regionals affiliate with ODN, so we have built an onlineKnowledge Exchangefor regionals to share best practices as well as monthly programming ideas, materials, and speakers.
  • ODEA (OD Education Association)convenes universities to establish, advance, and promote the body of knowledge required in OD education and serves as a research collaborative.

Get Involved: Coaching or Mentoring Programs

The process for getting involved in coaching and mentoring with OD Network is simple, with the most important step being to update your personal profile and identify your area of interest (i.e., offering or receiving coaching/mentoring). Once that’s done, people can find you in the member database and reach out if there is a mutual fit. Further, you can proactively search our member database to identify other members that match your specifications. All that is left to do is initiate a contracting conversation and design a program that makes the most sense for both of you.
