We define Organizational Development (OD) as the positive growth and development of organizations (companies) using the ability and willfulness of the people and various groups in those organizations. Vital companies move forward each day ahead of the competition. They improve the quality of the work they do, gain financially, serve customers or clients, and enhance the lives of employees. They are good citizens in their communities. This is a lot of work for companies and it cannot be done without the dedication and good work of people.
Priority Learning is an Organizational Development company focused on the people aspect of work. Leaders, employees, customers, clients, vendors and stakeholders are all part of the success or failure of an organization. The work of designing, delivering and following up on state-of-the-art facilitation, training, coaching and development to each of these groups is what Priority Learning does.
We work in Organizational Development (OD) so organizations can focus on strategy, objectives, barriers, and getting the day to day work done. There are three aspects of our work:
Product, which is the deliverable of business, such as a new chair off the assembly process or service to a customer in a teller line.
Process, which is the "how" of doing the work to serve customers, such as granting a loan, processing raw materials, and even billing.
People, which, of course, are the folks who do all the producing and processing above. We focus on what clients tell us is the most difficult of the aspects - people!
At Priority Learning we have the time, knowledge and resources to focus on the skills and behaviors that make people better, smarter, more willing and even more creative every day. What gets in the way of success is low morale and lack of personal satisfaction. We help people to realize their full potential to grow and learn and to find their willingness to risk and stretch personally. Add to this the ability to immediately implement learnings and you start to see why we do what we do.
We listen, watch and build. Organizations know their people; we ask the right questions and get the answers to help your business grow their natural resources - people. As a product of listening we can provide a variety of services:
