Organisational Needs Assessments

If you’ve ever asked yourself any of the following questions, your organisation may benefit from an organisational needs assessment:

  • Are you at that point in your agency, where it’s time to take the next step, but not sure how?
  • Are you questioning whether what you are doing is making a difference?
  • Are you worried about your agencies survival into the future?
  • Do you want to grow your agency, but need help with planning this out?
  • Or do you just need someone external to facilitate a planning discussion with your team?

Luke will facilitate an organisational needs assessment with your Board and staff to identify the strengths of your organisation and areas that you may wish to improve on.  Luke will then link you into relevant resources, mentoring, training to enable you to work on the priority areas for improvement and offer ongoing support for up to 12 months.

This is another free service.
