Masters Certificate in Organization Development and Change

  • The Masters Certificate in Organization Development and Change has been designed to help you be confident in your ability to assess a consulting situation in collaboration with the client, and provide the most appropriate intervention from an array of many in your repertoire.

    It will encourage you to be acutely aware of your own consulting style, preferences and skills, and know when to offer them and when to refer to others. You will become a more reflective practitioner who is constantly learning about yourself, your clients and the field – able to build on your own strengths and be honest about your areas for development. You will be genuine and transparent with others – seeing who you are personally as the key instrument for change.

    You will work from a theory/practice integration as an increasingly skillful professional who is able to explain your practice choices from a strong theory base. Finally, you will leave with a cohort of colleagues from whom you can continue to draw support, as you take your skills and knowledge into the world, with the intention of making it a more humane, equitable, peaceful and growth-enhancing place. I expect that this learning experience will be one of your most valued – both during the program and as it contributes to your on-going work as a professional.
