Organizational Development

• Is your organization not as effective as it could be?

• Does your team keep revisiting the same issues over and over again, even after a decision has allegedly been made?

• Are you having trouble forming effective coalitions, or are you in a coalition that just doesn't seem to get anything done?

• Are the conflicts between the power centers in your organization growing and are they out of control?

• Are your organization's mission and the staff's roles and responsibilities clearly defined?

• Do you have a proactive plan for making your organization stronger and more effective over the next few years, or are you too busy reacting to each crisis as it arises?

If any of these problems plague your organization, JBA can help. Whether you need a good facilitator for intra-group or inter-group meetings, help hiring a new executive director or other staff, or drafting a strategic plan, Joel's thirty-plus years of experience and superior facilitation skills can make the difference for you.
