Yesterday evening the MBODLG (Mass Bay OD Learning Group) reprised one of its most popular formats, the multi-track "best practices" session, titled Best Practices in Six Work Environments III. Six teams of presenters provided experience-based overviews of OD work in Internal, External, Healthcare, Biotech/Pharma, Non-Profit and Virtual environments.
I sat in on the virtual teams session, co-led by Nancy Settle-Murphy (Chrysalis) and Nina Viswanathan (Monster) and learned some new tricks to make virtual environments more engaging, improving the experience of group leaders, facilitators and participants. We also took a look at a new tool to help virtual teams succeed.
From what I heard in conversations with those attending the other five sessions, the learnings were well worth the time spent in each breakout. Many thanks to our great presenters. And thanks also to our hosts Tufts Healthcare, who provided a wonderful facility for the work. It was a great night for all who attended.
