Organizational Development and Learning

What We Do

The ODL team provides resources and learning opportunities in support of the development of Mason’s faculty and staff and to help leaders build and sustain a high-performing team. Through our leadership development programs, we encourage supervisors and managers to develop and implement a leadership philosophy and strategies to foster a culture of trust, communication, and collaboration.

We offer organizational development consultation services, beginning with a team needs analysis, followed by a collaborative design process of team interventions such as strategic planning support, facilitation, or change management initiatives. Our team members are trained in a number of assessments, which we use in these initiatives or as a part of the coaching process, as we work to build and broaden leadership competencies across the university. Additionally, we seek to foster and grow a coaching culture at Mason through our developmental workplace coaching program and partnership with executive coaches in Mason’s community.


Members of the organizational development and learning team are available to help supervisors set goals and identify training opportunities for their teams or individual team members. Contact us to get started.
