As OD professionals, we often face the challenge of supporting organizational change efforts. To support successful change efforts, it is often critical to intervene at multiple levels including individual leaders, leadership teams, and the larger organizational context. Helping senior leadership teams become more effective and aligned can pay huge dividends in the overall success of a change initiative. Organizational change initiatives are often laden with unanticipated surprises calling forth a need for OD professionals to be nimble in wearing multiple hats to support our clients.
