I think of all organizational development work as facilitation and training; my role is to facilitate the process that works to get the organizational goals met, while building your capacity to do this work.
My areas of deep experience include:
- Nurturing respect and trust, accountability and empowerment
- Shifting the culture from a focus on providing services to supporting people to make change
- Effective decision-making
- Meeting and process facilitation
- Building commitment and capacity for intentional change
- Leadership development
- Project management
- Board development
- Strategic planning
- Nonprofit start-up
- Working in coalitions and partnerships
In December, 2014, I completed a five day Organizational Diagnosis training taught by Sam Kaner at Community at Work. This training develops practices for promoting organizational self-awareness, and co-designing and supporting intentional change processes.
In the summer of 2015, I completed a 4 day training series on Trauma-Informed Care. While this does not make me an expert on creating trauma-informed processes and places, it does mean that I understand that framework. I can connect the work I do with goals around reducing re-traumatizing events, and being useful and respectful responders to trauma-induced behaviors. Trauma-informed care, co-active coaching and organizational diagnosis are complimentary, mutually supportive frameworks, and their tools work well together.
