Leadership and Management

Griffin-Hammis Associates believes that without great leadership and abundant management skills, organizations cannot excel in cutting-edge employment innovation. Our core team of associates has over 100 years experience in leadership as Program Managers, Executive Directors, Board Members, Family Members, Policy Consultants, and as Front-line Staff. 

We believe that organizations must be “Leader-Full” at all levels and that the practical application of superior service delivery sculpts policy and operations. Implementing efficacious rehabilitation techniques requires management systems to change, with guidance from an agile leadership vision. Griffin-Hammis Associates can mentor your organization’s team to greatness.

While we have numerous training and consultation offerings, our most effective leadership development package is based on our six-tier organizational development model. Customized to each community and agency, this curriculum includes a mix of highly interactive and experience-based classroom instruction, intensive team consultation, and individual mentoring. The six tiers include:

  • Values, Mission, and Purpose Refinement
