Organization Development (OD)

Organizational leaders who need to plan broad, systemic change in employee behaviors to reinforce new strategies, systems, or structures rely on Voyage Consulting Group for the following OD results: 
●Prevent diversions of obstacles, competing objectives, or too many initiatives pursued at once.
●Prevent undermining growth caused when capabilities are depleted by extreme streamlining.
●Empower disciplined accountability through metrics, operational mechanisms, and governance.

Services Include:
Culture and Engagement: See below the surface using our proprietary assessment of your corporate culture. Your insight can steer you in the right direction for human capital initiatives that can improve performance. It also can help identify and repair gaps in a current engagement practice.

Change Management: If you are planning a strategic restructuring, managing post-merger integration, or leading ambitious initiatives, our practice could help reduce disruption and build momentum. We can help you reduce the agony (and expense!) of changes.

Operational Mechanism Update: Evaluate your internal social and operational systems to learn whether they meet current business needs. If they are based on needs from long ago, they may not be working effectively any longer. Operating in the dark or the dark ages could be sabotaging results. 

Corporate Resilience: Companies of all sizes can build a tolerance for ups and downs of a turbulent business environment. Our Resilience Framework includes the Operational and Strategic components to help you and your company stay on course and prosper regardless of surprises. (A 17-page Guide to Operational Resilience is available for you on the Resources page.)

Organizational Leadership (OL)

Leading a company at the organization level requires different skills and traits now than in the past because the rapid pace of multiple, simultaneous changes makes business uncertain. Outdated leadership behaviors lead to business failures.

Companies reluctant to adapt to the new way of doing business will not be able to keep up with those willing to function differently. From the people to processes to the profit model, companies who make it in the next seven years and beyond will adapt. If you think adapting leadership practices is not important, check out the Fortune 500 roster from 2000. More than half of the companies on it no longer exist.

Our OL services enable your organization to function effectively, thrive, and grow in pursuit of its objectives and Mission.

We utilize a variety of models, assessments, and resources with our clients. Our primary leadership model was developed over the last two years to capture needs of the complex business environment our clients operate in today. 

We share the new 5 A Model of Leadership so organization leaders can resolve challenges, grow their companies, and build sustainable organizations.
