Come join us for the Northern Alberta Chapter Professional Development Fall Event with keynote speaker, Mr. Phil Cady.  For your convenience we are repeating this workshop morning and afternoon.  Be sure to register early for this highly anticipated workshop as space is limited.

Keynote Speaker: Mr. Phil Cady, Leadership in Social Systems

The Organization Workshop activity is a dynamic, yawn-free leadership and organization development session for all members of organizations. This workshop focuses on the worlds of Tops, Middles, Bottoms and Customers (consumers/clients) during turbulent times. It gets to the heart of partnership in organization life - what makes partnership so critical, what gets in the way of it developing, and what the role of leaders is in making it happen.

The centerpiece of the workshop is an organization exercise in which participants are dropped into roles as top executives, middle managers, workers and customers/clients interacting in a chaotic, fast-paced environment. This visceral approach enables the learning to get beyond the head level to where it really hits home and sticks.

In combination with these engaging, high-energy organization exercises, there are practical strategic frameworks based on myriad, validate studies in the field of social systems. These frameworks help participants make sense of what they're learning and enable them to make connections to experiences in their own organizations or communities.
