The faculty of this program includes representatives from four continents, and the 150 graduates of the program thus far are spread across the globe. Representing work developed over 30 years at the Organization and Systems Development Center of the Gestalt Institute of Cleveland, and elaborated in the cross-cultural milieu of the International Program for the past ten years, this training develops mature professionals beyond their already proven scope of accomplishments.
The OSD International Program offers professionals effective alternatives for influencing the systems in which they work. The experiential nature of the program design enables participants to practice new skills in observing, reporting, and intervening in organizational settings. The intensive, international-based training draws heavily from the Gestalt Center for Organization & Systems Development Program, which was the first to apply Gestalt principles to the field of organizational consulting and has maintained a reputation for exceptional professional development for over 30 years. The program has four major foci:
