Strategic Planning & Organizational Design


Strategic Planning Design

We believe planning is where strategy and leadership come together in a dynamic process for designing the future, making decisions and executing effectively. We consult, facilitate and coach so your organization or school excels in a variety of strategic endeavors—from specific strategic “thinking” initiatives to comprehensive strategic planning efforts.



We partner with you to:

  • Develop a fresh approach to clarify who you are, what you value, and why that matters
  • Translate that into a strategy and operating plan that aligns your actions with how you lead, organize and measure—so your strategic plan becomes part of how you do what you do, every day

Organizational Design and Strategic Implementation

GLP believes a well designed organization that clarifies function, unleashes talent and fosters collaboration is a critical success factor for schools and not for profits.

With deep expertise in organizational design and development, GLP brings perspective, insight and sensitivity to the assessment and analysis of your organization—ensuring that your strategy is one that your organization is ready to implement.


We partner with you to:

  • Assess your organization’s design in relation to the outcomes that matter most

  • Define and clarify roles and functions for more seamless execution

  • Manage reorganization initiatives from early planning through communications and execution


Managing Organizational Change

GLP helps organizations—and their people—understand, embrace and adjust to change. Whether the challenge is to design and learn new ways of doing what you do, evaluate your talent needs, build new capacities, or radically rethink your mission and organizational structure, GLP will help navigate this new terrain with sensitivity, foresight and an intimate understanding of your organization’s culture. We’ll give you the honest advice you need to lead, make decisions and communicate well so your organization thrives.


We partner with you to:
