    This webinar will cover what we need to do in order to succeed in the ever-expanding, changing roles of crafting our company's strategies, shaping culture, designing how work gets done, and determining priorities in running our businesses.
    Organization Development core competence skills will be key to doing all of this!

    Dr. Minahan will address how HR and OD need to take itself more seriously, find common ground, overcome differences, and make themselves more relevant to senior management rather than staying on the margins.

    Matt Minahan will also talk about the book which he co-edited, called the Handbook for Strategic HR: Best Practices in Organization Development from the OD Network, by John Vogelsang (Editor),
    Maya Townsend (Editor), Matt Minahan (Editor), as well as their accompanying handbooks.


    Matt Minahan has worked for more than 35 years at helping organizations build capacity. He works with senior executive teams on enterprise-wide change programs to meet new business challenges in their external and internal environments, develop new business strategies, and redesign their organizations from the bottom to the top. 

    Matt's work includes collaborative design and facilitation of strategic planning, organization design, organization structure, leadership development, communications, business process simplification, and culture change.

    These change programs often include Action Research based interviews and focus groups, a frank self-assessment by the organization of its strengths and weakness, stakeholder analysis, external benchmarking, and work on alignment among the organization's business strategy, values, mission, and leadership philosophy. 

    His executive coaching with leaders focuses on goal setting, communication and involvement strategies, management practices, personal style, use of time, priority setting, decision making, and effective delivery and receipt of feedback.

    Matt served on the Board of Trustees of the Organization Development Network for seven years from 2009 to 2015, including as vice chair, co-chair, and chair. He is also an active volunteer and former board member both of NTL Institute and the Chesapeake Bay OD Network, as well as being an executive in institutional change and strategy at World Bank in Washington D.C.

    Matt completed his doctorate at The George Washington University in OD. He holds adjunct faculty appointments in the Doctorate in Strategic Leadership Program at Philadelphia University, and in the MSOD program in the School of Public Affairs at American University in Washington, D.C. He is also a visiting scholar at Benedictine University, Cabrini University, and at several other doctoral programs.

     The webinar link will be sent to all registrants on the morning of the webinar. Questions?
