The executive director at a nonprofit economic development corporation came to us because their team wasn’t communicating well and it was keeping them from achieving the results they wanted. While the individuals were highly skilled, with tremendous experience and motivation, something wasn’t clicking right for the broader group. The result was a lack of morale and increasing frustration.
Through organizational development work with DLCC, which included staff retreats and team coaching sessions, they were able to identify their strengths and challenges, improve their communication, increase individual and team efficiency and productivity, and create unique solutions to the problems they were facing. They came together and learned how to courageously share their needs while also having compassion and empathy to hear what others on the team needed. This resulted in greater accountability and a high performing team.
Today, this group has greater creativity, positivity, and cooperation. Their team identified their vision, mission and values and has an increased commitment to their strategic plans, greater communication and increased morale. They have a stronger ability to manage change and deal with conflict in a positive way when it arises. While the productivity has gone up, the employee turnover has gone down.
