Organisational Development for NGOs





"If you want to build a ship, don't drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea." 

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

The Cycle

Organisations are inevitably undergoing cyclical development in which they keep needing to push into new territories, projects, and approaches. Those in turn need to be normed and constructively contested before they take off into the magic sailing flight of performance. Every new phase has to go through formation, through defining the context in which you operate, and through bringing all on board with enthusiasm for change. If any of those phases are not done or not completed, the performance phase cannot happen. With glitches and stones on the way, and through not analysing which natural development phase you are in and what the needs of that phase are, organisation can slip into a downward spiral. The focus on upward growth is at that point no longer helpful but in fact exasperates the situation.

On the downward spiral sits the leader as perfectionist lone rider, disappointment, conflict as personalised frustration, burn outs, loss of impact/money and people. Success and impact are not in the end dependent on available financial resources but on the cycle health of the organisation. Research shows that the most successful global and local organisations focus on scaling their impact out, rather than just scaling up in internal resources. We offer you a process designed for you that lets you

-     clearly understand and analyse exactly where you are now on the cycle,

-     how you 'muscle up your team' with renewed inspiration and out of burn out territory 

-     crystal clarity on how to build organisational health that lets you spiral up with ease  

What we offer

Tailor made process accompaniment and trainings for individual organisations or groups of organisations that will tool you up for guaranteed transformation into an upward spiral and out of burn out territory and conflict. We stand with you for your cause!
