ORGANISATIONAL DEVELOPMENT & SUPPORT (ODS) AND TRAINING
Our ODS services focuses on assisting organisations to examine their organisational health and offers guidance for their growth and self-empowerment. Our approach takes into consideration where organisations are in their development, enabling us to build on their skills, experience, and abilities in an organic way. We have a strong orientation towards an appreciative/asset-based approach by acknowledging existing capacities.
All consultancies will follow a process of assessment and profiling, development of a working agreement, implementation, follow-up and evaluation. Our services will respond to the needs identified and will progress at the organisation's own pace, taking indigenous knowledge and practices into account. We will offer workshop facilitation, mentoring, coaching, training, and will make available relevant information, as required.
