My organization worked with Dr. Ann Gatty for both the employees and the Board of Directors, each with different focus areas. Before working with Dr. Gatty for the employees, some of the issues we were facing was a lack of and/or misunderstanding of communication internally and focusing as a true team entity. Having Dr. Gatty work with the Board of Directors stemmed from both having a large number of new board members, as well as having leadership transition within the organization, causing there to be a need for better understanding of roles and responsibilities of the Board of Directors.
After the employee retreat, I see the employees actively using what was learned and discussed in our session with Dr. Ann as they work together and communicate with one another. The team spirit and functionality has improved internally, also. After the board workshop, the directors are much more engaged, and actually excited about making some changes,refreshing the governance documents, and restructuring the committees to become more of a working board, which is phenomenal for the organization.
