ORGANIZATION DEVELOPMENT

PUTTING THE PIECES TOGETHER

Whether you need to build a leadership development program, develop a full-cycle employee survey, or have an impending change management project, Brava Consulting can help you execute effectively, leveraging time-tested scientific research and best practices that have worked for other organizations like yours. All solutions will be tailor-made for your company based on your culture, organizational hierarchy, strategic goals, and other factors; we know better than to apply a pre-designed assessment or program without understanding your distinct conditions and desired results. Below are some of the many organization development consulting services we offer.

CHANGE MANAGEMENT

Have a large or complex change facing your organization? We can help you plan and navigate it to mitigate the chaos and emerge leveraging the expected ROIs that prompted the change in the first place! We understand the science of change and human behavior, and will help you take the steps necessary to allow for effective change with minimal employee resistance. We are well versed in several different change models and will collaborate with you to select the one that will work best for your team or organization!

EMPLOYEE SURVEYS

We can custom design an employee survey for your team or organization. 

Some ideas for surveys include:

  1. Employee engagement and organization commitment
  2. Performance appraisal and performance management
  3. Knowledge transfer after training (requires a pre-test before training takes place)
  4. Leadership readiness
  5. Employee morale
  6. ...and more!
  • We can assist in the rollout and data collection
  • We can analyze the data, detecting trends that will answer questions and inform your people and/or business strategy
  • We can explain the results to all relevant stakeholders, and answer any additional questions
ORGANIZATION CULTURE ALIGNMENT

Many companies boast about their cultures and perks to attract top talent, but in reality fall woefully short in living up to these ideals on a daily basis. This can severely malign employee morale and performance over time, and ultimately leads to burnout and voluntary turnover. A simple culture assessment and alignment can help your organization get back on track and revitalize employee engagement, productivity, and creativity. Make the investment in your company today!

EFFECTIVE TEAM PERFORMANCE

Different personalities, diverse worldviews and expectations, and ineffectual organizational reward structures can create discord and hamper team effectiveness. We can leverage our expertise on personality, team effectiveness, organizational behavior, performance, and motivation to align your team members so they work individually AND together as effectively as possible.

TALENT MANAGEMENT

YOUR PEOPLE MAKE THE PLACE

While it’s often cited that upwards of 75% of people leave “bad” managers, not their jobs, another major factor in voluntary turnover is a lack of investment in professional development. Today’s talent is craving opportunities to learn new skills, improve their performance, and take on new challenges. Are you actively providing these opportunities to everyone who wants them?

After the large investment your organization makes in recruiting, hiring, and training your talent, your focus should shift to seeing a return on that investment! Brava Consulting leverages evidence-based strategies to help you retain, develop, and engage your workforce so they can collectively save you money in talent acquisition costs and make your organization money through their stellar performance! Below are some of the many talent management consulting services we offer.

TALENT ACQUISITION CONSULTING

We can advise you on how to streamline your recruiting and onboarding process so that you minimize your costs while maximizing the caliber of talent you attract, while also strengthening their performance and loyalty to your organization. Research shows replacing an employee can cost between 1-2.5x the annual salary of the position, so why not ensure your talent recruitment efforts will yield dividends, rather than costing you unnecessary funds?

LEADERSHIP PIPELINE DEVELOPMENT

Leadership assessments can help determine which of your employees are your best bets for investing in for the long term to ascend the corporate ladder and fit into your leadership succession plans (you DO have a leadership succession plan for every leadership role, don't you? If not -- we can help with that, too!). We can help design leadership development plans for each team or for individual roles, and of course, we offer excellent leadership and executive coaching services too!

SUCCESSION PLANNING

It is vital to the success of every organization that a succession plan is in place for EVERY position! Having a plan allows your company to not miss a beat when an employee surprises you by giving their two week notice, unexpectedly gets sick or prematurely dies, goes on parental leave, or any number of other causes of absenteeism that would profoundly impact the performance of that person's individual duties and their team's productivity. Brava can help you develop an organization-wide succession plan to keep you functional at all times!

MENTORSHIP & SPONSORSHIP PROGRAMS

A major component to professional development is the opportunity to engage in mentoring relationships, both as a mentor and a protégé. Additionally, sponsorship, which is when a higher-ranking employee vouches for a lower-ranking employee to leadership and relevant decision-makers in order to establish the trust needed to help the lower-ranking employee gain new responsibilities or roles to help them climb the corporate ladder and develop their careers, is essential for employee professional development and the long-term health of an organization. For organizations committed to inclusion and diversity, sponsorship is non-negotiable. Brava can help you design sponsorship training workshops or an organization-wide sponsorship initiative, as well as set up a mentoring program.

JOB ANALYSIS

Attracting the best talent starts with accurate job descriptions. We can properly conduct a job analysis, from interviewing incumbents and subject matter experts, to using benchmarking research and data, and determining the competencies required to meet the goals of each position for your particular company.

SKILLS ASSESSMENT & CERTIFICATION

We can custom design a skills assessment for your pre-hire candidates or certification exam for your new hires. These tests can help you determine who will be exemplary, adequate, or under-performing in the position they are being considered for, so you can make smart talent acquisition and workforce planning decisions.
