Organization Development (OD)

Organizational leaders who need 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 accountability through metrics, operational mechanisms, and governance.

Services Include:
Culture and Engagement: Fresh insight can enable you to see below the surface and steer you in the right direction for HR-related initiatives that can improve performance. Our Culture Oversight Report can assure your Board and investors that your company operations are aligned with its mission and values, and with the laws.

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 Outdated leadership behaviors lead to business failures.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. 

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, 5 A's of Leadership Now, was developed to enable our clients to capitalize on the complex business environment they operate in today. 

Leaders we work with are able to stimulate changes to their business environments and set the pace for the rest of the field.  (click to learn more)

●Prevent placing strong team players into leadership roles before they are adequately prepared to succeed.
●Develop and retain high-potential individual contributors who may aspire to leadership roles.
●Spread a consistent leadership message, so everyone understand expectations and feels inspired to fulfill the company’s Mission together.

Growth and comfort do not coexist.”
