I wrote about reflecting the other day, and had the opportunity to reflect again yesterday. Working with a group of people who are developing into OD specialists, I talked through a specific activity I’m working on. They discussed it and then questioned me further. They discussed it again and then fed back to me.
This was a ‘real world’ case study for them; they were tasked with supporting me and applying some of the OD theory and thinking they’ve been learning about into practice. They were sharp. They asked loads of questions. They didn’t offer solutions.
I liked it because it wasn’t a case study, it was real world. It was also highly objective feedback to me on something I’m working on.
Working out how to apply that feedback is the next step.
