About this workshop

View the conference brochure here

Dr. Victoria Grady from The George Washington University will talk about the Model of Organizastional Loss of Effectiveness (LOE). The model is described below:

The model of an organizational LOE hypothesizes that an organization experiencing a loss of stability, e.g. during organizational change, can exhibit symptoms that are predictable, measurable, and can negatively impact the overall effectiveness of an organization. These symptoms include; decreased productivity, decreased morale, decreased motivation, increased conflict, increased absenteeism, and increased turnover. Based on similar types of diagnoses for individuals, if a significant number of the symptoms, e.g. a majority, are present in the organization’s behavior, the result will be an Organizational Loss of Effectiveness (LOE).

By learning how to recognize the Loss of Effectiveness in employees, you will learn what needs to happen in order to mitigate these effects.

What you will learn at this workshop:

• You will understand the organizational Loss of Effectiveness Model as it relates to employees experiencing change.
• Clarify what you need to do to avoid failure when your organization adapts to change to avoid a Loss of Effectiveness with employees.
• Discuss decision making information related to unacceptable consequences of change:
  - decreased productivity, morale, motivation.
  - increased conflict, absenteeism, and turnover.
• Provide individuals with personal insight into easing the transformation.
• Introduce the workshop participants to the LOE Index, the quantitative measurement tool to access the “change health” of the individuals in YOUR organization.
