OLDN Awards

Centre for Organization Leadership and Development (COLD) through the Organization Leadership & Development Network (OLDN) recognizes members, individuals and organizations involved in advancing the science, theory, practice and values of Organization Development, Leadership and Governance. The awards are aligned to the OLDN Membership segments’ activities and international forums. OLDN follows careful and professional award nomination criteria with a total of not more than five awards annually. In view of our focus on OD related deliverables, particularly transformational impact and influence, OLDN is not obliged to announce awards every year. The OLDN Continuous Personal and Professional Development (CPPD) and Member Impact-Influence Reflections (MI-IR) further guides the award procedures.
