Event description

Description

What are the key elements of a high performing organisation in 2020? And, more particularly, how can one be sustained in an environment of ever-increasing change?

This one-day conference seeks to address these questions by exploring the critical roles active engagement, people development, inclusive leadership practices and the recognition of living in a VUCA world can play in shaping the practices and ultimately the performance of an organisation.

This Organisation Development conference, sponsored by Oakridge, brings together a set of expert speakers to deliver a highly interactive event.

Last year's OD conference sold out quickly we advise early booking.


Agenda

9:30 Welcome, Introduction and Objectives for the day
Neal Chamberlain, OD Lead, CIPD Manchester Branch Committee


10:00 Building a High Performing Organisation through Investing in Your People

Many people leave, or at least mentally withdraw from, their employer if they sense their employer does not reciprocate their investment of talent and energy.

In this interactive session, we explore

  • how managers can ensure they develop their teams in line with organisational goals;

  • how to keep a broad approach to what ‘investment’ might mean for different individuals, and

  • how to ensure we keep a focus on this issue in busy operational environments.

Jerry Scott, Senior Consultant, Oakridge

11:00 Break


11:15 Sustaining Improvements in a VUCA Environment

As John Lennon said, ‘Life is what happens while we are busy making other plans’. Similarly, in organisations, we regularly create a new operating model, only for urgent and not-so-urgent matters to get in the way of maintaining focus on sustaining hard-won and necessary improvements.

Brigit Egan will address the challenging organisational pressure of seeking to build a high-performing environment while living in a Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous world.

Brigit Egan, Director, Oakridge Consultants


12:15 Lunch


1:15 Engaging your Colleagues in the Improvement Journey

Much has been written about the importance of engaging colleagues in organisations, but how can an organisation, with inevitably limited resources, seek to actively and genuinely engage its employees in an improvement journey?

How to maintain momentum, and ensure leaders are themselves fully engaged in the vision for the organisation? Kevin Charlesworth draws on a wealth of experience in engaging delegates in this key question.

Kevin Charlesworth, Senior Consultant, Oakridge Consultants


2:15 Break


2:30 Capturing Contribution Through Inclusive Leadership

Organisations are falling over themselves to declare their commitment to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. But how is this achieved with any lasting impact?

In this session, we review the multiple dimensions to this question; from testing levels of commitment and self-awareness in leaders, moving beyond appropriate website images, to achieving a genuinely-felt sense of inclusion by all those who work for an enterprise.

Dr Rachel Cowen, University of Manchester Lead for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
