Our organizational work includes a combination of:
Using techniques ranging from brief surveys to in-depth focus groups and interviews, we gather information about organizational dynamics. Assessments can also include equity audits of HR and management practices and focus groups with communities impacted by the organization. Additionally, we analyze risk factors and take account of how the culture of the industry or field may be impacting organizational dynamics.
Policy and program development, strategic planning
Operationalizing the information gathered in the assessment phase, we create a plan for how to bring about desired changes in the organization. This phase can include strategic planning, policy creation and implementation, skill development for management, and program development.
Training of management and staff
We tailor trainings based on the needs of the organization and, as appropriate, on factors unique to the industry. Trainings can range from shorter sessions to longer, multi-day sessions that focus on intensive skill building and transformational organizational change.
Coaching of Leadership & Management
We believe that leadership sets the tone for effective intervention. Whether it means educating leaders on these topics or simply offering advice and support as it is needed, we offer coaching as part of our packages and as a standalone offering. This can cover a range of topics including: education around the issues and how they manifest in organizational settings, handling disclosures, responding to crisis scenarios, and creating accountability as a leader.
