Organizational Change: Align Your Organization
When we first meet them, many of our client organizations look something like this: they’ve got all the necessary organizational elements, but they’re all jumbled up. Maybe their leadership team is a dysfunctional, or their strategy is outdated, or their people lack the skills they need to be successful. Perhaps their HR or IT systems are broken, or their organizational structure gets in the way of their ability to innovate.
Based on two decades of intensive experience in global organizations, we strengthen and align your organization’s elements so they:
- are individually strengthened;
- form a mutually reinforcing positive network; and
- all point in the same direction, creating the power to shift your entire organization in the direction it needs to go to function and thrive.
We work collaboratively with you through the following four phases:
Phase 1: Assess
The first step in changing an organization is to assess where it stands today. We interview a cross-section of people up, down and across your organization to understand their experiences at your organization regarding leadership, strategy, culture, talent, systems, and organizational structure.
Phase 2: Report
In a series of facilitated meetings, we deliver an in-depth, customized “Organizational Feedback and Recommendations Report” directly to you and your team to help you understand how well positioned and aligned your organization is today and to help you increase effectiveness and alignment.
Phase 3: Implement
We help you identify the critical actions that will move your organization forward over the next 6-18 months. We work with you to ensure the successful implementation and integration of your new initiatives.
Phase 4: Reflect
Throughout the process, we help you assess what is working well and what could be done more effectively, so you are constantly improving.
Just as the tumultuous chaos of a thunderstorm brings a nurturing rain that allows life to flourish, so too in human affairs times of advancement are preceded by times of disorder. Success comes to those who can weather the storm. I Ching
