Testimonials

  •  

  • Flourish! is no ordinary talking heads conference; it is an interactive experience, connecting practitioners with each other, and with emergent thinking and approaches. This year's theme of partnering purpose, people, and performance led us to the "People with a purpose perform" realisation. I encourage anyone involved in getting people to flourish in the workplace to get in the room in 2015.

MD's Letter - A call to Flourish! together

SAODN MD's Letter - May 2016 We are almost half-way through the year and already knee-deep into the preparations for not one but two conferences: the Flourish conference in 2016 and the International conference we are hosting with IODA in 2017. I am personally sitting with a lot of excitement, anticipation and energy when I think of what and who we will be engaging with as a local OD community over the next 18 months. And yet, we have to also acknowledge that 2016 has not been an easy year for our country, economy and society thus far. Max...

Launching our SenseMaker Survey Blog by Sonja Blignaut

Launching our SenseMaker Survey Blog by Sonja Blignaut Understanding what it takes to thrive in a VUCA world I’ve just spent a day and a half with a group of 40 leaders, collectively making sense of what it means to be an Entrepreneur of Meaning (a wonderful phrase borrowed from Gary Hamel). Listening to their stories, I’ve come away with a greater understanding of the pressure that decision-makers face in in a business environment that is becoming increasingly Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous. People look to them for certainty, and rely on them to make sound decisions, hard to do...

Ritual as a Methodology in Organisational Change

Ritual as a Methodology in Organisational Change Most of us OD people have long been frustrated at how conventional business and leadership psychology attempts to reduce change to a linear sequence between "the current state" and some desired "end state". In fact, we have all been complaining about managers saying things about "change levers" and "barriers to change" and "acceleration of change" since the dawn of symbolic meta-consciousness with the work of Gareth Morgan.

Flourish – SAPPI Case Study

Flourish – SAPPI Case Study Flourish! recently caught up with Mike Truelock, Organisational Development Manager at Sappi Southern Africa. Here, he discusses the challenges of organisational change and leadership that he faces in his role and how attending Flourish! has helped him and his team rethink what it means to thrive in uncertain times: Sappi as an organisation has been wrestling with very challenging market conditions and operates within an industry that is largely considered to be in its “twilight years”. There has been a quest by the organisation to reduce costs so as to become a low cost producer and address...
