Intensive: Designing & Leading Change with David Sibbet & Gisela Wendling
This three-day hands-on Intensive is for organizational leaders, facilitators, and consultants seeking to deepen their skills in designing and leading organization change and social-change processes. Participants are invited to bring a process-consulting challenge and will emerge with a process design and knowledge of a range of proven intervention methods that will lead to successful change. Grove founder David Sibbet and Gisela Wendling, Ph.D., will co-lead this Intensive. Participants benefit from generative dialogue among participants and experienced guidance by the leaders of the Intensive.
David brings 40 years of practitioner experience with complex processes in public, community and organizational settings. Gisela builds on her 20 years of practice and research with organization development, transformational learning, change, and deep dialogue. They are presenting new work arising from their forthcoming co-authored book Visual Consulting: Designing & Leading Change, which includes the new Seven Challenges of Change Framework.
