“Throughout the process, G&A was very flexible and responsive to OFCY needs and priorities. They created multiple structures to fully engage different sectors of the community and, in particular, they thought ‘outside the box’ to develop strategies for eliciting input from youth who are not normally engaged in the civic process.”

— Director of Human Services, City of Oakland


Proven and effective organizational development and coaching services

G&A provides organizational development and coaching to a range of clients in education, public health, and social and human services.  G&A assists clients in developing performance measures, benchmarks, and accountability systems to align activities with strategic goals. Working with school districts, G&A designs restructuring systems to comply with legislation and to reduce the achievement gap.   Our services also include one-on-one coaching to leaders, and technical assistance to support leadership in overall organization and time management. 

Research on Organizational Change:

Making any kind of system change requires changes in organizational operations and culture. G&A uses research into organizational change and adult learning to inform its approach, working to ensure that all plans incorporate implementation guidelines, benchmarks and/or performance measures.

The G&A Approach:

  • Participatory: We engage both the client and the consumer of services

  • Asset-focused: We identify strengths, before deficits

  • Research-based: We incorporate best and promising practices

  • Data-informed: We use multiple sources of data throughout our process
