Challenge

A county government - seasoned in perfecting processes - was caught unprepared for significant cultural shifts in their community. The leadership was in need of a new perspective to help them adjust how they operate internally in order to remain relevant to their constituents and keep up with the pace of change.

Approach

Through a dynamic ALR work session, leaders were challenged to get out of their comfort zones, put aside perfection, and find new solutions with limited resources. We provided a real-world experience, which confronted mindsets about the risks and rewards of flexibility and adaptability in practice.

Outcome

In addressing their own resistances to change head-on, this civic leadership team took a crucial first step towards redefining organizational approaches to address the significant cultural changes happening in their community.
