Welcome to Organisational Development

The Organisational Development (OD) Team is the new home for a range of learning and development activity previously provided by the LPDC.

What does the Organisational Development (OD) team do?

We deliver the full programme professional development workshops including Keele Welcome, the Keele Knowledge Programme and the Personal Effectiveness and Leadership and Management workshops all of which will continue to be booked through Keele People.

We deliver leadership and management development including The Effective People Manager and the ILM L2 Introduction to Leadership and Teams programme. We also arrange the The New Leaders (induction) Programme, Mentoring for Leaders, and ‘First 100 days’ coaching for newly appointed Strategic Leaders as well as help to identify external leadership programmes as appropriate. In addition, we coordinate the Aurora Programme for Keele, overseeing recruitment to the programme, liaising with the LFHE and sourcing internal mentors for each Keele participant.
