Services for Organisations, Teams and Individuals
to Improve Organisational Effectiveness
COVID-19 has created a new reality for all of us, changing our way of engaging with each other, of meeting and working. At Tamarind Tree we have adapted several of our services, using a variety of online or distance approaches, to offer support to organisations who are looking to meet the new reality creatively. Where circumstances allow, face-to-face workshops can still be offered.
1. Sense making to collectively grasp the current crisis
Group processes that will allow you to gain clarity about what risks and possibilities are present, unblock fears and anxiety and enable more conscious team understanding and collaborative work.
2. Strategic Reviewing & Renewing
A set of team thinking processes to re-examine your purpose, values, strategy and practice into the foreseeable future.
3. Organisational survey - Taking the pulse of the staff and responding developmentally
Getting confidential feedback from staff on any organisational issue and working with the organisation to participatively address what emerges.
4. Support for leaders - Renewing perspective and self-awareness and mobilising own capacities and strengths
One-on-one coaching processes to provide regular spaces to help leaders to reflect and rebalance themselves and find the perspective and wisdom as they lead in these new demanding and stressful times.
5. Using the Action Learning Cycle to continually improve and deepen practice
There are several choices: developing practitioner Action Learning Sets, working with case studies, deepening conversations and writing, or developing more meaningful learning-oriented reports to stakeholders/donors.
6. Renewing organisational culture and self-care – refreshing relationships and the will to work - overcoming social distancing
Group processes that build new ways of including, motivating and adapting to a new work reality. Building relationships and empathy so that different staff facing different home circumstances (e.g. as women, single parents, in low income housing etc.) are supported appropriately. Approaches to self-care and mutual support.
7. Improving online processes - Developing more effective online conversations, meetings and workshops
Learning to design and facilitate processes that are more thoughtful, participative, motivating and able to build authentic connection.
