Earlier this year we completed a six month project of business transformation supporting a large local NGO to engage seriously in the work of supporting recovery. Core aspects of the project were architecting the change, supporting an organisational restructure, liaising widely in the sector to promote understanding and garner support for the change and establishing and facilitating four staff recovery groups.
This work yielded powerful results which showed up not only in the lives of the consumers with whom the staff worked, but also in the staff’s own lives and practice. As part of this process, 13 potential recovery group facilitators were identified and subsequently mentored over a six-month period in order to embed the recovery approach in the organisation.
The measure of success of this project was that Ros Bowyer Consulting were able to step away after this time and the organisation continued down the path of supporting a recovery-enabling approach.
