Founder and CEO of conflict management company, TCM Group, David Liddle, has launched a think-tank to support organisations, leaders and HR teams in taking an “innovative approach to creating person-centred and values-based organisational cultures”.
According to Liddle, The Institute of Organisational Dynamics (IOD) has been created at a time when the “pandemic has brought the issues of trust and values in the workplace into sharp focus”.
The organisation serves as a platform where industry experts can connect, share ideas and create a portfolio of widely accessible resources, to enable members to “continually grow and develop” in their roles.
Liddle said: “The Institute of Organisational Dynamics serves to provide a think tank for individuals and organisations who have an interest in transformational culture, HR & Leadership, conflict management, restorative justice, organisational development, positive psychology, behavioural science and systems thinking.
“It offers a programme of continuing professional development (CPD) events, workshops and webinars for members. Our CPD programme can be run on an open-access basis, virtually via TCM Online, or we can come onsite to design and deliver CPD events which are tailored to meet the unique needs of your organisation.”
He added: “If organisations are to nurture positive, person-centred environments during these uncertain times, HR teams and leaders must intervene. Employees need to be confident that organisations will treat them fairly and equitably, supporting them when times are tough and helping them to grow.
“They need to be sure that companies are centred on values and committed to resolving conflicts at an early stage, through open, honest dialogue, rather than relying on damaging bureaucratic formal processes.”
