Mapping and Reporting

Our expert practitioners will work with you to diagnose the specific conflicts, patterns, and interpersonal dynamics that trouble the organization.

Something isn’t working in your organization. Team leaders keep having the same conversations, unable to move toward a decision. Interpersonal conflicts keep derailing progress. Low retention rates, staff and culture survey results, or DEI assessments tell you there’s an issue—but the fix will be more complicated than a single policy change.

So how do you identify the underlying causes? How do you decide to intervene, and where? What skills do your managers and employees need to develop? What are the systemic problems that cause miscommunication, conflict, and inefficiencies?

Mapping and preparation lie at the heart of the Essential Partners approach. Our expert practitioners will work with you to diagnose the specific conflicts, patterns, and interpersonal dynamics that trouble the organization. Our services include:

  • Community and employee surveys
  • Stakeholder interviews
  • Focus groups
  • Review of existing reports relating to inclusion, engagement, and satisfaction
  • Leadership and management coaching and consultation
  • Detailed reporting

After collecting and analyzing both quantitative and qualitative data, we submit an analysis to understand the challenges as well as the opportunities your organization faces. We’ll also provide a set of recommendations to address the issues that stop your organization from achieving its goals, whether that’s pursuing a nonprofit mission or improving the efficiency of your teams.

Mapping and reporting may lead to staff training that equips your organization with the skills to navigate challenges, leadership coaching with an Essential Partners expert, or the design and creation of working groups that embed these efforts within your organization. We can also refer you to a host of peers if your needs don’t align with our particular strengths and capacities. 

Our goal is to help your organization reimagine what you can achieve—together. Reach out to us today for a free half-hour phone consultation.
