The wholeness crisis is more relevant today than ever. Despite a more globalized world, there is increasing fragmentation. Technology is a game changer. Job security is at the lowest. Organizations scramble to deal with change. People work longer and harder. Global stress levels have increased.
None of these make us whole. Singapore’s engagement scores are the lowest in the Asia Pacific region, again. Yet the role of (OD) organization development is to facilitate wholeness in individuals, teams, and communities so that the human spirit and technical systems synergize to bring about sustainable contribution.
As Einstein says, we can’t solve the problem at the same level of consciousness that created it. Perhaps we could reconsider our thinking. Western management tends to separate and manage parts, whereas Eastern thinking integrates and focuses on the whole. This session explores how OD practitioners can facilitate wholeness in today’s disruptive world.
The session explores:
- East and West ways of thinking in guiding our work
- Being whole ourselves to be a clean instrument
- Facilitating wholeness in meeting, one room at a time
- Creating space for both triangle and circular ways of working
