Webinar: An Everyone Culture: Becoming a Deliberately Developmental Organization

January 30, 2017 - 2:00pm to 3:15pm

In most organizations nearly everyone is doing a second job no one is paying them for—namely, covering their weaknesses, trying to look their best, and managing other people’s impressions of them. There may be no greater waste of an organization’s resources. The ultimate cost: neither the organization nor its people are able to realize their full potential.

Deliberately Developmental Organizations (DDOs), by contrast, are organized around the simple but radical conviction that organizations will best prosper when they are more deeply aligned with people’s strongest motive, which is to grow.  They are incubators of personal development.  Those who can coach others to grow hold the most revered positions in these organizations.  In this highly interactive webinar, we will discuss:

  • What are the design principles, concrete practices, and underlying sciences at the heart of DDOs?
  • How do they provide a new, 21st century answer to workplace professional development? 
  • What are the implications for coaches (working internal or external to organizations)?
