Online Courses

As a practitioner I am often asked if I run training courses.  I do, but as an OD practitioner my approach is to offer bespoke courses which take into account the context in which I am delivering the workshop in order to help the organization move forward.  However,  I have recently recorded some online courses which are peer-reviewed, CPE-earning courses, which may be relevant to your job and your career.  Keep checking in because I will be adding to these over the coming months.
