The LOD approach is based on core assumptions about organizations:
- People bring individual talents, motivations, and values to the organization
- People work in teams and groups to accomplish goals
- Leaders provide vision, direction and structure and build cultures that motivate and engage associates
- There is a dynamic interplay between leadership, team effectiveness, individual engagement, and business outcomes.
Each organization is different and unique in terms of people, strategy, culture, and leadership. Leadership & Organization Dynamics provides a customized approach in service design and delivery, starting with understanding your specific business needs and tailoring programs and services to enable your success.
