Organization development consultants seek to improve an organization or work-group’s handling of internal processes in dealing with situations such as change, decision making, leadership style, harmful conflict, building trust, teamwork, and communication. They evaluate how an organization operates and make recommendations for improvement. Organizational development consultants are typically hired to support organizations that are not working up to their potential and in danger of failing. They make strategic changes to bring businesses back to profitability. OD consultants empower organizations and their staff, the very people who actually know the work best, to think creatively about new ways of working and getting results. They are committed to improving the performance and effective operation of the organization and simultaneously, to the development and empowerment of its staff. OD consultants act as valued partners of organizations, providing them valuable skills towards future personal and organizational growth and by building morale which reduces employee turnover and rehiring costs.
