NEW! Advanced Organizational Development Offerings

Experienced organizational development (OD) practitioners and HR managers who frequently do OD interventions in the workplace can now look to MSEC for advanced training.

These classes are designed for the seasoned OD/HR practitioner, and are intended to provide OD experts with the “next step” of development. The a-lacarte offerings build on foundational tools, but offer the opportunity to further explore an area of interest more thoroughly or an interesting new facet in the world of OD.

Here are our 2014 offerings:
