Burlington, MA (Vocus/PRWEB) December 17, 2010
will be hosting its 13th annual Organizational Development Summit in Chicago, May 3-5, 2011. The 2011 Summit is scheduled to take place at The Fairmont Chicago and feature legendary leadership expert Dr. Warren Bennis. Dr. Bennis is a professor and the founding chairman of The Leadership Institute at the University of Southern California. The Organizational Development (OD) Summit
will also feature keynote speakers:
- Edgar Schein, renowned expert on organizational culture and MIT Society of Sloan Fellows Professor of Management, Professor Emeritus; and
- Walter Bond, former NBA player and one of the world’s preeminent experts on personal accountability
Breakout sessions for the 2011 OD Summit will include five learning tracks focused on performance management, employee engagement, driving change, leadership development and talent management. The full keynote and session line-up will be announced in January.
HR Generalists are increasingly being asked to take on additional responsibilities—in many cases, strategic OD initiatives. To better equip them to take on these tasks, participants at the Summit will also have the opportunity to enroll in the OD School of the HR Generalist, a yearlong learning experience that kicks off an intensive one-day pre-Summit workshop, followed by attendance at the OD Summit. Following the onsite experience, participants will benefit from a year of continuous learning, which will include online learning team discussions on relevant OD topics, peer coaching with an experienced OD practitioner and access to developmental webinars. Linkage’s mission is to connect high performing leaders and organizations to the futures they want to create.
