  • Match University clients to skilled internal and external practitioners, facilitators, coaches and trainers who will achieve the best result;
  • Develop short and long-term solutions that contribute to integration of learning and best practices into organizational planning and day-to-day activities.

Organization Development Services include: 

  • Change Management

  • Performance Management Coaching
  • Performance Management Consulting
  • Retreat Planning and Facilitation
  • Staff Development Programs
  • Team Building and Dynamics
  • Team Objective and Goal SettingTraining Programs

WLP staff works with University areas in a 5 step process:

Area representative initiates a request for consultation using the Organization
         Development Request Form;

2.      A client meeting is scheduled to determine needs and preferred outcomes, and establish
         budget and timeline;

3.      A project design is developed, which includes project outcomes, timeline and 
         deliverables, and resources required;

4.      Implementation may include training, on-going consultation, coaching, or facilitation;

5.      After services have been delivered, the final step is to complete an evaluation of WLP 
         services and project impact.
