What would happen if we didn't disagree? Would our lives be more positive
and productive? Or, would we experience some unintended consequences?
Without disagreement, it would be difficult for organizations to perceive
changes in the marketplace, and adapt and survive. Groups wouldn't be
able to synergize their efforts and perform as effectively. Individuals
couldn't express themselves as well, or be as satisfied with their
contributions as they could be. Yet, most of us view disagreement as an
unpleasant and unproductive process. Join Jeff Bracken, Joy Griggs and
Karl Krayer to explore and experience the dynamics that help and hinder
this essential and beneficial process, and learn some practical techniques
for dealing with it effectively.

Planning Team This is a self organizing team made up of dues paying
members of the DFW ODN who regularly participate in the process of program
