When to Call Sedruola
For an Assessment – Sometimes, it takes a conversation to figure out what you need. But sometimes, a deeper more deliberate assessment process is needed to identify your specific strengths, needs, and opportunities for positive change. Sedruola will work with you to design and implement surveys, interviews, and focus groups. She’ll review existing data and other documents, to fully understand where you’re starting. She’ll then provide an assessment report with recommendations for next steps, which could include coaching, training, and sometimes other more cultural and structural changes.
Leadership Coaching – Coaching is the best tool to use for a few key people in your organization to deepen their understanding in a sustained way. In contrast to trainings – which are often crunched for time, and try to teach a little bit of info and skills to a lot of people at once very quickly – coaching allows a “go slow to go fast,” approach using in-depth conversations, reflection and practice to support your key team members in building their capacity for enacting social justice.
Employee Resource Group Development – Employee resource groups are a great way to begin the work within an organization to shift culture. Sedruola will work with your group to develop a strong steady structure and foundation to ensure sustainability. Together you’ll decide on group goals and format so it’s fully inclusive to anyone within the organization.
