Organizational development (OD) is important for your business because the only thing that stays constant in a business is change. Organizations must change as often as technology, consumer tastes, and cultural needs demand.
OD applies behavioral sciences to improve the performance and productivity of workers in the workplace and exists to improve work processes and job satisfaction. The study of these interests allows organizations to benefit from increased worker motivation, productivity, and results.
Culture and Change Management
In the past quarter-century, Culture and Change management as a discipline has matured and evolved. Researchers have found that for changes to be successful, employees need to be prepared, equipped, and supported.
Vector U’s Culture and Change Management solution helps you to identify, clarify and understand the issues inherent in managing complex change and cultural context, and helps ensure that management practices are appropriate for both managers and the employee groups that are impacted.
The TKI is used by Human Resources (HR) and Organizational Development (OD) consultants as a catalyst to open discussions on difficult issues and facilitate learning about how conflict-handling modes affect personal, group, and organizational dynamics. The TKI is also extensively used by mediators, negotiators, and many practitioners in the coaching profession (executive coaches, career coaches, business coaches, life coaches, etc.)
The TKI is prepared to take on the most complex problem solving or strategic planning challenge. They help individuals and teams alike be more productive and make better decisions while fostering creativity, problem solving, and teamwork.
The world is growing, and with it, our opportunity to build valuable relationships with people who are different from us is. Cultural competence is important because, without it, our opportunity to build those relationships is impossible. Instead, we’ll co-exist with people we don’t understand, thereby creating a higher risk for misunderstandings, hurt feelings, and bias—things that can all be avoided.
We’re here to help you understand the value of cultural competence and how you can use it to build stronger relationships in the workplace. Vector U provides a set of skills, knowledge, and behaviors which enable effective intercultural engagement.
