OD in a Box

A strategic assessment
The assessment includes a review of your current plan and goals, or the creation of them.
An employee engagement initiative
The initiative includes an employee survey (in person or using a tool from one of the industry leaders, depending on size), and report-outs to the CEO, leadership team, and employees
Leadership 360s and coaching
A 360 collects feedback from relationships around each leader using a tool from a best-in-class provider. Each leader receives three hours of coaching addressing gaps and goals based on the 360 results.
A 12-month action plan
The action plan is a plan to implement change based on what you learn from the engagement initiative and the leadership 360s. These are actionable and substantive changes that lead to measurable and meaningful success.
A performance plan template that links every employee to your strategies and goals.
Not having a performance tool is like following a map without knowing your destination. Using an old performance tool is like trying to use an old telephone with a dial as a cell phone. The right tool is easy to use, links every employee to your strategic plan, and has every team member pulling in the same direction. Looking for success? That’s where to find it.

Why does OD matter?

Associations. Why? You are in a fight for organizational excellence to maintain your relevance.

OD does that. 

Mergers & Acquisitions. Why? Change can crush organizational culture.

OD rebuilds that.

Organizations who want to grow. Why? You can’t grow without the right strategy and without your people behind it.

OD supports that. 

Organizations focused on success. Why? If people truly are your most valuable asset…

OD demonstrates that.

Oyster does that.

Successful organizations have a plan, capable leaders, and engaged employees… with everyone working toward the same goals.

Looking for success? That’s where to find it.
