Organizational Development and Consultation
Enhanced performance is an essential goal for organizations with today's
revenue and marketplace challenges. Developing teams that are self directed
and high performing can be key to successful management. Lee Bruder
Associates has the ability to provide specific management training and
consultation services to profit and nonprofit organizations. We work effectively
with both boards and management groups to address specific issues and to
achieve new levels of development.
Boards of Directors
With 15 years of experience as a Director and Officer on various nonprofit boards,
we have gained first hand appreciation for the challenges boards face. Motivating and
educating directors so that everyone participates in the work of the Board is key to success.
Management Team Development
Senior Management teams are essential to the successful functioning of any organization. A management group can function as a collection of individuals or it can function as a high performing team. All too often companies and organizations decide that the collection-of-individuals approach is good enough. Larger, multinational corporations have for many years experienced the importance of developing the team approach among their senior and middle managers. There are stacks of books on the subject yet the sage advice and techniques therein go untapped by many organizations. Managers feel too busy to engage in a new initiative. They become nervous about devoting the resources of time and dollars to developing something that already seems good enough. However, high performing teams have proven they save an organization time and money.
In today's marketplace, organizations must have certain resources and abilities
to survive and a different set of resources and abilities to thrive. A thriving
organization has the agility to respond rapidly to changes in funding or the
marketplace. It has well developed, high performing teams and all employees have
a clear understanding and appreciation for the the vision and mission of their
organization. As a result, they understand why executive management makes certain
decisions and have a sense of commitment to the organization and its products
It is rare that meaningful, well-managed whole organization change is negotiated
without assistance from outside the organization. Executive teams need assistance
in focusing on the right tasks at the right time to have the greatest impact in
the shortest amount of time.
