I was so impressed after attending a three-hour seminar with Kristine
Quade-Sullivan (Minnesota OD Practitioner of the Year, 1996) and Roland
Sullivan (International OD Consultant of the Year, 1997), I volunteered
to coordinate a three-day seminar covering basic skills which are useful
in facilitating whole systems change events with groups ranging from 100
to 2,000 participants.

As a team, Kristine and Roland bring a rare combination of extensive

in large group change meetings, usually in groups of 300-800.  They are
adjunct faculty at Pepperdine University in the MSOD program and also

series on leading edge OD pratices (to be published in 1999).

We've designed the seminar carefully, to deliver an abundance of
practical information and experience, and to allow participants to soak
up the information at a reasonable pace. We'll meet for one afternoon (1
- 5 p.m.), one full day (9 a.m. - 5 p.m.), and one morning (9 a.m. - 1
p.m.), Feb. 24-26, in a bright conference room in the Financial District
of San Francisco. Lunch will be catered on the full day.

If you would like additional information about WHOLE SYSTEM
to write me a note or give me a call; please include your name and
address so I can send a brochure with details about change management
trends, working with large groups, who could benefit by participating in
this seminar, a description of the seminar content, seminar
registration, and more information about Kristine Quade-Sullivan and
Roland Sullivan.
