Join Us on Thursday, March 31, 2016!

5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

As OD Professionals, isn’t finding the answer to, “What is really going on here?” and “Where is the problem, really?” our first step in order for us to determine how we can effectively help a team, organization, or community?

Brad Withers, a global Facilitator, Trainer and Coach specializing in Leadership, Teambuilding, Communications, and Systems Thinking, is going to lead us on an exploration of Systems Thinking. Given the complex systems that we now find ourselves in and the chaotic, non-linear behavior that is the new norm, Brad through his stories and experiences will equip us with a new tool to help us see realities that we might have missed before.


By the time Brad is with us, he will have completed 2035 learning programs in 10 countries. He earned an MBA from Cleveland State University and dual BAs in Business and Philosophy from Wittenberg University.
This is an interactive session that will help you undoubtedly improve your sight and hearing! We look forward to having you join us!!
