Individual Effectiveness

Individual Effectiveness

Successful organizations are increasingly aware of the importance of engaging their people, not only in terms of their individual competency (Can Do) and their motivation (Will Do), but in terms of aligning their fit with all elements of their personal and professional context.  From personal life to their work role, team and the business objectives, this level of alignment empowers people with the foundations for self-efficacy, mastery and personal accountability.  From knowing, to doing, to being, our programs instill the know how that stretch and strengthen participants ability to break through self-imposed limitations and reach new heights of effectiveness.

We assist individual, team and organizational learning so that all members see themselves as continual learners empowered to be active participants and partners in the essential process of sustaining viability and agility to move and grow with changing markets. This results in more engaged and satisfied employees, greater efficiencies and significant, measurable performance improvement.

Our personal and professional development workshops build the foundation competencies of personal and interpersonal effectiveness. Our consulting programs engage individuals by lining up those elements critical to success in their unique personal and professional life.

Align Your Self

Align Your SelfPersonal effectiveness is the quality of being able to generate success in what you want and in the way you want.  This coaching program is for those who want more out of life or feel there is more to life and aspire to be all they can be.  We all have dreams, goals, callings and ‘bucket list” items that when we think about them, make us feel as if something is missing:  Something of substance and meaning without which we do not feel authentic or complete.  

The Align Your Self program begins with an exploration of the self, examining all the elements of the system in which we live and that makes each of us unique and gives us a sense of meaning.  Participants undertake a variety of interactive and experiential activities in addition to assessments and inventories specifically designed to draw out deep personal drives, eliminate blockages and liberate your authentic self.

Whether you’re looking to discover your true vocation, transform your sense of self, find the courage to answer a call from your inner voice, or wanting a life worth living; wherever you happen to be—emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually—the Align Your Self program will meet you there and help get you to where you want to be.

Its not until you truly know your self that you gain the autonomy to find what you\\\'re doing that doesn\\\'t server you.  Thank you for helping me see my way clear of my blockages.

 Never have I felt more in charge of my career.

My career is balanced with my lifestyle now and I didn't know how happy that would make me until I had the opportunity to evaluate what made my heart sing.

There is such a difference between giving half and giving whole.  I am more productive and efficient and I work less.  This was not the outcome I was expecting.

On an individual level ODR provided me with mentoring and feedback as I coached the team though this process and the challenges associated with team development and change management.  I highly recommend Delia, ODR and its services."

This program was the catalyst in making my new company so successful.  The accountability and responsibility for not just outcomes but aligned results is exactly what the business needed.

My boss looks at me differently, because I look at myself differently.  He now sees who I want to be rather than who he thinks I am.  

I not only know, I have negotiated for what my soul desires and it rocks!
