A salute to the life of Warren including his reflection on the moment that the Profession of OD started in 1946 with Lewin.
This is the first video. The second video is key. It contains the recent reflections in 2010 of Warren's remembrance of the moment that OD was discovered. Lippitt, Benne and Bradford all were present. I still maintain relationships with the Lippitt and Bradford families. My large group work comes from Lippitt. My whole system concept comes from Bradford and his son Dr. David at Stanford. My competency work comes from Benne and Bennis. Ken Benne created the first competency list. Warren emphasized that the first competency element of self-awareness and self discovery that Benne articulated was paramount for anyone who is doing change work. Bennis himself modeled such with his commitment to his own personal therapy for most of his life. Therapy that was not needed because he was not diseased like Robin Williams but because he believed in therapy for the super normal people wanting to become excellent and all they did.
