    Primary event: Dealing with Post Traumatic Job Disorder (PTJD) - Facilitated Discussion and Tool Sharing with Christine Burych

    Every year, thousands of people worldwide struggle with Post-Traumatic-Job Disorder (PTJD). This widespread yet under-examined condition is changing the landscape of today's workforce. How can OD elevate Workplace Wellness when fear-based management is prevalent?

    During this discussion we will examine how working in an environment where an employee feels targeted, isolated and systematically shut down can lead to Post-Traumatic Job Disorder, and what we as OD practitioners can do about it.

    Primary event: What Constitutes a Conflict Intelligent Organization?

    Inevitable as it is, interpersonal and team conflict in workplaces is generally not viewed as an opportunity for growth and development of the organization or its staff. Rather, ill-managed conflict or avoiding the signals it raises can result in costly problems due to attrition, stress and medical leaves, reduced productivity, low morale and even loss of reputation.

    On April 17, 2019 please join conflict specialist Cinnie Noble, who will share her expertise about the opportunities to be gained from facing conflict head on. She will discuss what constitutes a conflict intelligent organization and what the ingredients are for building one.
