2 A word from our OSD Center President … The Gestalt Center for Organization & Systems Development, familiarly referred to as the OSD Center, has been a supporter and sponsor of the OD Network Conference for many years. OD Network Conference Our BBI workshop, back by popular demand this year, is the longest running ODN pre-conference workshop and has sold out each time it's been offered.

3 The Gestalt/OSD presence at this years OD Network Conference is very strong, with three Gestalt organizations in attendance at the conference. 1. Gestalt International Study Center (formerly Intimate Systems Center GIC) CEO Nancy Hardaway 2. Gestalt Institute of Cleveland (formerly Clinical Center GIC) Interim AD Jeff Vengrow 3. Gestalt Center for Organization & Systems Development (formerly OSD Center GIC) CEO John D. Carter

4 We are especially excited that a number of current and former faculty as well as graduates of OSD Center training programs are presenting, including three of the founders of OSD programs: John D. Carter Edwin C. Nevis Carolynn Lukensmeyer Carolynn will be presenting a keynote address at this years conference. Several OSD graduates are also presenting at the conference.

5 Introduction to Gestalt OSD Since 1974, the Gestalt Organization & Systems Development Center has worked to seamlessly integrate Gestalt psychotherapy, organization development, and systems thinking into coherent training programs designed to support and enhance the intervention skills of organizational consultants, coaches, and other change-agents. Our training programs are world-class, and our participants and graduates come from around the globe. We believe that the true worth of our interveners is not measured by the particular set of skills or tools they possess, but rather by their ability to see themselves clearly in relation to others. Such clarity and self-mastery drives individuals to integrate organizational change knowledge and the synergy of working together to produce powerful interventions for superior results. Our programs are the original and still the best OSD training programs, led on most cases by the original founders and/or long-time faculty of the OSD programs.
