This learning group proved invaluable to me as it introduced me to new colleagues, ideas and tools that helped me develop my network and my capabilities.

Facilitator and Coach, Australia

Lisa brings together diverse groups of consultants and others working in people- and change-focussed sectors. Her excellent curation of topics and facilitation of these sessions means there is always an opportunity to learn about emerging models and ideas that I may not be aware of or have considered. The peer learning approach makes these sessions highly practical and allows for a diverse range of views to come together. I look forward to the monthly sessions as I know I will always go away with new perspectives and tools I can apply, as well as feeling more connected to other professionals.

Lisa is an experienced OD professional and a master connector. I have observed this firsthand from participating in her unique learning groups with OD and change management professionals. Lisa is excellent at bringing people together to learn new skills and share expertise in friendly online environments. She is thoughtful about the agendas for each session and makes sure there is something for everyone in the group. I very much appreciate the value of these forums and always leave learning something new!.

Lisa is a natural connector, bringing people and ideas together. Her learning communities inspire knowledge sharing and experimentation with others who are engaging and masterful in their specialised fields. Most importantly, Lisa understands the fundamental principle that learning is relational – that it happens WITH, which is reflected in the quality of spaces she creates for those who are ready for high quality exchange and development.

New opportunities have opened up. I’ll be presenting at a conference this year based on relationships I’ve built through this network. I’ve been able to facilitate and practice some of my techniques… Also I’ve been able to get the confidence that I’m not the only one out there that are suffering these pains….as well as celebrate the wins with other people that are fighting the same fight I am.

As a practitioner within an organisation you almost sit in a vacuum, you’ll only be as good as the other practitioners you’re going to collaborate with. By being part of this group, you’re part of a community, you’re part of a network.

Find The Path To Successful Transformation

You want your transformation to be successful. It is critical to your business success and your role. This is the “unicorn” approach, to get you into the ROI and innovation zone.

Flywheel Effect

Move from a PUSH

An integrated Unicorn Strategy Activation approach ensures you make the right commercial decisions, with the right people at the right time, working in the right way. This moves the transformation from a PUSH to a PULL approach where people not only want the change, but actively get involved to make it happen. That is what a PULL effect is all about.

About the Founder of the OD Hive, Lisa Carlin

(And why is she credible to help you?)

Future Builders Group | Lisa Carlin - Founder of OD HiveHi, I’m Lisa Carlin. As a scaleup mentor, I work with ambitious digital leaders to turbo-charge their business, cultural and digital transformation.

Those working with me have an independent sounding board and expert advice so they have absolute confidence they will achieve their goal.

The average failure rate for transformation is around 70% according to McKinsey research. In contrast, I have designed and delivered around 50 transformation programs, with just a 4% failure rate. Both failed projects were abruptly terminated due to a CEO / responsible executive being replaced.

When stakes are high, each decision counts. You won’t get a second chance.

My early career was with Accenture in South Africa and McKinsey in the USA. I’ve since worked with global multinationals, Australian corporates, government and NFP’s through to startups and VC funded businesses. I’m Co-Founder and Director of FutureBuilders Group which is a network of Organizational Development specialists.

I’ve been running a vibrant OD Community since 2020. Over my career, I have built many stakeholder communities inside organizations to drive transformation. I also volunteer as the Chair of an Education NFP, and I’m focused on building a different kind of community – volunteers fundraising for disadvantaged students in shanty towns of South Africa. Education is a major enabler of change.

I have now distilled and documented the techniques and tools that I am confident provide exceptional momentum and precision to a transformation. The OD Hive community is unique globally. If you work in the field of transformation, program/project management, change management or Organizational Development, you are invited to click below and join a trial session at no cost.

I look forward to welcoming you to the group.

How do the monthly Group sessions stimulate learning and improve the change impact in my business?2023-02-22T12:08:19+11:00

The Group meets monthly via Zoom for 90 minutes, to discuss a specific topic. Sessions are designed as a collaborative, curiosity-driven, inquiry-based learning environment based on social learning theory. Each session is usually led by Lisa Carlin and a cofacilitator. The co-facilitator(s) may be another member from your group and/or another group within the OD Hive, so no session is exactly the same. There are often breakout discussion groups. Sometimes we will send you optional pre-reading, podcasts or youTubes. We understand that group members are busy, so the majority of learning occurs in the sessions. Discussions are biased towards practical implementation and integration with our OD

How can I be sure the topics will be valuable?2023-02-22T15:17:07+11:00

The list of topics is carefully curated by the Group Leader, Lisa Carlin based on input from the group. This is an enquiry-based group which means the topics evolve, based on the flow of the discussions, the interests of the members, and what is happening in our operating environment. Discussions range from the future world of work, business change, digital transformation and employee engagement.

Recent topics include:

  • The power of communities to drive change
  • AI for OD
  • Integrating design thinking into our approach
  • Future World of Work update and how to drive EX
  • Latest trends in HR Tech and EdTech
  • Digital business models for service businesses
  • Building digital transformation capabilities and skills
What happens in a session and how is your enquiry-based social learning approach different?2023-02-21T23:35:41+11:00

We follow a completely different approach to traditional learning. Our approach is enquiry-led, social learning. It assumes that each participant in the group has a unique and valuable perspective to share from their own experience. The facilitator(s) provide a succinct amount of content as a stimulus for a discussion, and members contribute their perspective. Together, the members actively contribute, debate and determine the relevance and how it can be applied to their own businesses. The last part of each meeting is a hot seat, where members are
invited to share an issue they are working on, and the group brainstorm ideas to solve it.

What can group members expect from the facilitators?2023-02-21T23:35:27+11:00
  • During the session, Lisa and the co-facilitator keep the discussion on track, ensures everyone has a voice, provides insights, and helps members be efficient and effective in mentoring one another.
  • Groups will start and finish at the agreed time, showing respect for the members.
  • Lisa will only admit members who have suitable interests and experience, and who are prepared to make a commitment to the group to sharing their expertise.
  • Lisa fosters an open, warm, authentic and friendly group culture which welcomes a diversity of opinion. There is a respectful and collegial atmosphere, where members feel safe to debate, have fun and sometimes disagree.
What is expected of members?2023-02-21T23:35:09+11:00
  • Members agree to set time aside for one 90 minute Zoom session monthly, and make every effort to attend.
  • Members contribute ideas, opinions and advice to others in our sessions in the spirit of generosity and sharing.
  • Members agree to abide by Chatham House rules, and will not share information outside the community that relates to specific companies or specific individuals.
How does this Group benefit me and my organization more than training courses?2023-02-22T12:06:10+11:00

This is an immersive, active experience – completely different to training programs, conferences, or webinars. Members provide tailored advice and insights to your business, that you cannot get by attending a training course. Imagine having access to a team of experts who will share their knowledge and experience to help you achieve your goals.

Our sessions are designed to cover a range of important themes relevant to the current environment, but unlike traditional training, we don’t just skim the surface. We dive deep into discussions and debate the topics, extracting practical implementation implications that you can take away and apply in your work. And the best part? It’s not just informative, it’s also fun! So, don’t miss out on this opportunity to unlock your potential to make unprecedented change in organization.
