OD practitioners call upon a vast tool set to help them navigate the organization change process. Despite the theory, tool, or measurement selected, we need data to act. Energetics training helps practitioners see and sense subtle energies that they can then use as data to help them act.

Energetics is another tool to help with understanding. Just as a CT-scan provides data to a complex situation, it doesn’t fix the situation; it helps you choose how to act. Energetics is the same way—it doesn’t fix; it is a tool that provides data. It helps to create awareness to and understanding of the complexity.

Join this interactive session and learn about the emergence of Energetics in Organization Development. Dr’s. Heorhiadi and Conbere will provide an introductory overview of Energetics and OD. They will be joined by practitioners and students who’ve applied the concepts and techniques. It is an opportunity for the development of a basic understanding and appreciation of Energetics and as another tool for practitioners to consider for their toolbox.

Change your paradigm and change your practice. Learn to tune into the subtle energies that can take an initiative offcourse. Recognizing the existence of these energies can help you focus your assessment, select the appropriate intervention, and save time and money on our way to an effective and sustainable change.
