I am a big fan of the work of Gervase Bushe and Bob Marshak on Dialogic OD

Dialogic OD is about "changing the conversations” that shape everyday thinking and behaviour in an organization and there is considerable overlap with Conversational Leadership. The fundamental difference seems to be that while Conversational Leadership is primarily about a set of conversational behaviours adopted by everyone in an organization, Dialogic OD is more about conversational interventions by OD practitioners and consultants. Many of the tools and techniques are the same.

So I am pleased to let you know about a new series of books that Gervase and Bob are publishing together – The BMI Series in Dialogic OD.

They are self publishing books by a variety of authors through Amazon and are interested in publishing short (100 page) books that are highly practical, provide lots of concrete examples, on one aspect of Dialogic OD practice.

If you are interested in writing a book please contact Gervase ([email protected]) or Bob ([email protected]) to discuss.

Or, if you teach OD courses and would like to consider any of their titles for course adoption, contact Gervase to get an electronic version of the book(s) you are interested in.

Finally, you may like to join their mailing list so you can stay up to date on when new titles are available.

If you are interested in Knowledge Management, the Knowledge Café or the role of conversation in organizational life then you my be interested in this online book I am writing on Conversational Leadership
