Some Key Topics of Vital Interest to Practitioners

Contracting for Success

Your ability to create explicit agreements with your clients to use the full power of our technology is crucial to your and your client’s success.


Expand Your Conscious Use of Self

Then do the same for your clients! Boost your skill at managing your own beliefs, thoughts, and emotions to help your clients do the same! This is the heart of organization development.

Make Group-Level Interventions Work

Group-level interventions have the power to improve dysfunctional norms and cultures more than any collection of individual interventions. Deepen your understanding of human Systems. Organization development’s emphasis on human systems makes it the most powerful technology that exists for managing change. It differentiates OD from less useful forms of change management. This is the power of organization development.

Turn Client Requests into Systemic Projects

Your desire to give clients what they ask for can be very hard to resist. Learning to recognize and avoid your contracting pitfalls is crucial! Dr. Broom can trace every one of his failed consulting opportunities to ineffective contracting. He can also trace every one of his successes to catalyzing effective contracting and re-contracting throughout his client’s systems. This is the work of organization development.

How Your Coaching Will Work

Coaching starts with a free one-hour conversation about what you want to accomplish in your coaching sessions and the situations you are or will be working with. You will be asked questions and offered suggestions that will help you clarify and specify exactly the areas of practice you would like to focus on. We will identify the steps you will take as a result of our conversation (we will do this toward the end of each coaching session).

We will close the first session deciding if you would like a three or six session package of session and discuss pricing and related issues. Of course, will talk about how often and when we will meet.

If you live in the Tampa Bay area, we can meet in person at a location we would negotiate. Otherwise, we will meet on my Zoom unless you prefer Google Meet or Microsoft Teams.

  • Subsequent sessions will include discussion and coaching about…
  • What work and what didn’t work regarding your activities since our last session
  • New topics you identify
  • Next steps to be taken before our next meeting
