We focused on the strengths of the participants and facilitated setting impactful goals for themselves and the organization. Process included workshops on leadership topics and individual coaching.

Mercer Medical Center
Hospital leadership was being challenged by changing healthcare environment and new competition. Hospital had recently had a large consulting firm come in and their recommendations had seriously adversely affected morale. Turnover was high and significantly impacting on some departments. TMA provided workshops and coaching to Executive Team that led to changes in dealing with staff and “patient focused care”. Changes were made in organizational structure including reducing what had become a top heavy staff. Many people in the organization took on new leadership roles, while others had their positions redefined to better meet the organizations needs and made better use of their talents.
Trenton Municipal Court – Trenton, New Jersey
Chief Judge of the court felt the need to improve the court’s overall customer service to the community and to do this he needed all the judges and administrators to take on more active leadership roles. TMA conducted a thorough analysis of each participants strengths and weaknesses, shared values and goals. We helped develop greater awareness of each person’s leadship style, personal mission and organizational mission, and creating greater alignment for all employees. TMA provided assessment, consulting, workshops and coaching to the participants with the result that direction was clearer, communication improved and positive feedback from the public increased.
