Organizational Development and Faciliation Projects
U.S. Department of the Treasury, Facilitation and Change Management Support (2012-2015)
EnCompass is contracted to provide a variety of organizational development and effectiveness services. This will include planning and facilitation of meetings, workshops, and other activities related to management and leadership, change management, and workforce engagement for both senior level leaders and junior staff.
EnCompass provided comprehensive facilitation and curriculum design services for this agency under a long-term agreement. Specifically, EnCompass collaborated with the agency to design and deliver its internal workshops, meetings, and learning events that addressed staff communication, collaboration, planning and implementation, team building, change management, and knowledge sharing.
EnCompass supported the integration of six offices under the new Office of IDEA. EnCompass conducted a survey, interviews with the senior leadership team, and focus groups, and designed and delivered a one-day retreat that launched the new Office. We also developed recommendations for managing culture change as the Office grows and implements its mission to bring innovation in development work across the Agency and world.
EnCompass led an organisational development/change management consultation to support implementation of a five- year project to address the challenges of providing logistical, administrative and information and communications support to field missions on a global scale. EnCompass assisted in the implementation of recommendations on restructuring to achieve better efficiencies, facilitated decision-making work planning processes, and supported development of a communications strategy to address staff morale, resistance to the restructuring processes, and information gaps.
EnCompass designed and delivered a half-day workshop for Field Presence leaders to strengthen their influence and dialogue skills. EnCompass conducted interviews with key stakeholders and potential participants to inform workshop content. The workshop focused on: learning to balance inquiry with advocacy; how to craft powerful questions; and how to apply influence skills in a variety of situations. The workshop encouraged participants to discuss and work through real-time situations/cases. Shared learning debriefs during the workshop captured best practices and recommendations.
EnCompass delivered a five-day learning activity for the WHO titled “Becoming a Strategic Business Partner and Talent Management.” The workshop was part of the new WHO Global Learning Program designed to improve the developmental needs of the diverse global HR community organization-wide, with a view to preparing HR professionals to better meet the requirements of the changing global human resources function.
EnCompass supported the senior management team through a number of organizational development activities to strengthen internal management systems and develop more effective and collaborative leadership processes. EnCompass conducted a needs assessment and designed and facilitated two retreats. EnCompass then provided coaching services to selected team members.
EnCompass conducted a two-year organizational effectiveness initiative for a large regional institution within the United Nations. The initiative included a comprehensive set of processes to enhance the effectiveness of a 700-person organization. EnCompass provided support in redefining the vision of the organization, clarifying strategic areas of focus and development priorities, and redefining internal cultural and structural mechanisms required to better deliver results to the region.
EnCompass facilitated teams in two different missions to manage a challenging period of transition and strengthen the missions’ effectiveness. Activities included assessments, interviews, surveys, and the design and delivery of retreats for Agency staff members, including Foreign Service and U.S. resident officers.
EnCompass facilitated a two-day strategic planning meeting for representatives from country offices and agencies of the United Nations to develop and agree on guidance to country offices for reporting guidelines. Forty participants engaged in collaborative discussions to develop a shared understanding of strategic goals, best practices in reporting, and to harvest lessons learned from their own experiences.Return to Top
