OD Book Discussion CoP

The OD Book Review CoP is built around the idea of an executive book summary. Each month a presenter introduces and helps us understand the key ideas from a recently-published book whose topic is relevant to Organization Development practitioners. It is not necessary to have read the book to participate; attendees are encouraged to join in the discussion based on personal experience. There will also be time to network with other OD professionals as well as stay current on the latest trends, concepts and models.

Meeting Frequency:
Second Wednesday of each month from 8:00-9:30am

Meeting Venue:
Specific meeting location (virtual or in person) will be included on each event listing page.

Book Discussion CoP — Leadership Position Opening Up
If you’re looking for a leadership role within CBODN, consider leading the Book Discussion CoP!  We meet on the second Wednesday of each month to discuss a new OD-related book.  Participants don’t need to have read the book — they just need a healthy interest in staying on top of emerging OD topics and participating in active discussion with other OD professionals.  The leader is responsible for scheduling book discussion topics and handling all marketing.  We have a solid group of regulars as well as new faces at each meeting.  If you’re interested, please contact Laura Mendelow.
