Prior to preparing your journal entry, review the Careers in Organizational Development Panel (Links to an external site.) video for an outside look at the role of the OD consultant.
During Week 1, you had a preliminary look at the OD consultant and the responsibilities they have during a change process. Your journal entry briefly reviewed your early understanding of the required skill set, and where your skills fit within that schematic.
Digging a bit deeper, Chapter 3 in the course text explains the details behind the practice. In addition, you researched and analyzed OD consultant job descriptions for an enhanced knowledge of the role.
Using this new knowledge,
- Develop a profile and description of your technical, interpersonal, and consulting competencies (current or desired).
- Include a paragraph explaining the role and style you will use for consulting.
- Prioritize the technical, interpersonal, and consulting competencies you might need to learn to be a confident and skilled practitioner.
The journal entry must be a minimum of one full page of content and provide pertinent and logical dialog related to the role of the OD consultant.
