How to Partner with the C-Suite: OD Best Practices

In today’s global, matrixed, hyper-competitive, and wired-for-speed enterprises, the ability to influence C-suite players can make or break both an OD practitioner’s ability to drive organizational transformation—and his or her career success. Over the years, we have been working with a number of senior OD practitioners who have mastered the art of C-suite engagement. As a result, they are working effectively to transform the way their organization’s teams, beginning with the top leadership team, are structured, make decisions, resolve issues and manage conflict.

This informal and provocative session features Howard M. Guttman, principal of Guttman Development Strategies, who has spent 25+ years helping corporations of every size and type, both within the U.S. and abroad, move toward the high-performance model. He and his GDS colleagues have frequently partnered with internal OD practitioners to fundamentally change how an organization is led and functions.

  • What is high-performance leadership?
  • What behaviors separate those OD practitioners who have partnered with their senior-team clients to bring about fundamental organization change?
  • How do these OD practitioners help senior management bring the high-performing model to life—how do they contract, collect data, give feedback, deal with resistance, and “land the plane” regarding next steps?
  • What organizational preconditions must be in place for OD practitioners to succeed?

Howard Guttman will challenge your assumptions about OD and provide ground-level insights into best practices for OD professionals intent on making a difference by working at the C-suite level to bring about high-performance teams and organizations.
