An example of how Organizational Architecture assists its client with leadership development is our recent work with the City of Strongsville and its leadership development program. The City of Strongsville is a large suburb of Cleveland, Ohio. Not only does it have a larger population than other suburbs, it has a diverse mix of residential housing and businesses and attracts thousands of visitors each day who enjoy its amenities. Steve Kilo, Director of Human Resources for the City, said, “Our Mayor feels that one of our most effective advantages as a City is the quality of our departmental leadership. He has led our efforts to foster teamwork, break down barriers, and provide the tools our leaders need to be good stewards of the public’s trust. “Organizational Architecture has helped us over the years with tools to enhance our leadership skills.  Workshops on Communication Styles, Change Management, Accountability, Coaching and Conflict Resolution, and others, have made our department heads and their assistants better at leading their people.  They have had a big impact on how we lead, how we coach, and how we responsibly manage the City’s resources”. Cities have unique challenges. As we are able to do for our business and not-for-profit clients, Organizational Architecture can be your partner to help your Directors, Assistant Directors, Supervisors, and other management personnel be successful and effective leaders.

Client success story – leadership coaching, development, and training

Today’s success story brings you to a vibrant suburb of Cleveland, Ohio. That’s right…Organizational Architecture even partners with municipalities to support their workforce strategy! We started working with this city’s leadership team to assist with on-going leadership development. Our initial assessment uncovered these challenges: The need for clarity around what characteristics are possessed by effective leaders The lack of meaningful and relevant training and development for their leadership team There was a need to foster teamwork among members of the leadership team. First, an assessment was conducted of the current managers to identify leadership potential and coaching and development needs. After identifying developmental areas of the city’s core competencies, we recommended training and development activities to meet these needs and created an action plan to deliver training workshops throughout the year. To fully commit managers to the training and development process, we also integrated the same competencies into their current performance management system including talent review and succession planning process. For the past five years, we have been able to provide customized leadership training and development to fit each department, while also targeting the specific competencies that have been deemed areas for improvement, ensuring that the entire city’s leadership team is provided a well-rounded training and development opportunity.
