"We're here...for you."

Albert Bondurant

Welcome to Organizational Development and Learning. As you’ve probably noticed, our ‘brand’ is illustrated by three different, yet interlocking, puzzle pieces. That image represents a number of ideas: OD and Learning being here to help you put the pieces of your puzzle together; the knowledge, skills and abilities we all need; the diversity required for organizational success; the strategies, structures and processes that OD and Learning can influence; you, your department/school/organization, and OD and Learning – as an integral piece of your puzzle.

As our Mission Statement clarifies, we are here as a resource for the staff of Wright State and for the external community. Whether we’re offering one-on-one coaching services, consulting services, facilitating a retreat or instructing one of our programs for a large group, we are here to serve your needs.

Our one-on-one sessions range from internal career counseling to executive coaching. Our consulting services focus on taking a look at your department/school/organization to clarify strengths and challenges, uncover gaps, and recommend solutions. Our facilitation services include third-party perspectives for meetings and retreats and the delivery of one of our programs.

Please let us know how we can best serve your individual and organizational needs.  We’re here … for you.
