What do we do? 

We provide OD services to managers and leaders from within the following five key themes. 

Theme Description 
We will work to develop an agile, flexible and collaborative culture across the Council by embedding our shared values and behaviours.  
Engagement We will work to build a happier, healthier and more motivated workforce who are committed to achieving the Council’s ambition through increased employee voice and engagement.
Leadership We will nurture and develop our internal leadership talent, succession plan for business-critical roles, and help build a pool of leaders who can deliver the Council’s future organisational objectives.
Team Development We will work with teams to strengthen relationships, instill the Council’s shared values and behaviours, foster team cohesiveness and build on the skills required to support the One Service programme of work and One Workforce Plan.
