Coaching Case Study: Global Non-profit Social Entrepreneurship Organization

Coaching Case Study: Global Non-profit Social Entrepreneurship Organization

Brief Description: Founded in 2001, the organization is based on the concept of social entrepreneurship and pro-active, self-motivated achievement. It strives to attract and hire high-achievers from the best schools globally and encourages risk-taking and innovation. As a result of such a high-performing, self-starting culture, rules are not always well-defined and goals are not always clear or consistent.

The organization contracts short-term executive coaching engagements (6 meetings) twice annually for their young, smart professionals collaboratively helped identify a personal development plan for each individual that was designed to evolve over time. Insights from peers, colleagues, and managers were gathered when appropriate. These plans ranged from in-depth personal assessment and identification of potential career paths to development of leadership skills appropriate to the current situation/environment.

Results: Through practical application of tools and resources, clients were better prepared to articulate their goals and discuss the plan with their management. Results included increased morale, renewed energy and clarity of direction, and an increase in confidence in navigating the organization and how to pro-actively take action.

Consulting Case Study – Private University in Manhattan

Consulting Case Study – Private University in Manhattan

Brief Description: The University was struggling to adopt consistently great service experiences for its user bases: students, staff, and faculty. Legacy systems and complex relationships were preventing the organization from making the significant progress they required. Feedback was random, existing surveys focused on select user segments, and responses were reactionary. Organization Development Consulting was key, and a comprehensive picture and strategy was developed.

Working collaboratively, we identified an action plan that started with defining the current state. We consolidated the results of an existing student survey, appropriate service-related questions from a previous faculty survey, stakeholder interviews, and documentation of user journey maps. Finally, we fielded a staff survey designed to assess the well-being culture of the organization. The online survey tool we used clearly outlined results and included personal resources, organizational system, functioning at work, and finally the experience of work.
