Government

Greenleaf has been serving Federal government clients since our founding in 2008. Our proof of exceptional performance spans a range of institutional support, leadership development, and strategic assessment and planning services. With deep expertise supporting government organizations with personnel operating in highly demanding environments, we deliver sustainable, tailored solutions that mitigate cumulative risks to mission success.

Our diverse expertise, including best-practice skills, techniques, processes, and tools, enables government organizations to meet challenging human resource requirements, elevate performance, accelerate positive outcomes, and protect the wellbeing of people.

Greenleaf understands how to achieve measurable impact within unique government agency environments. Regardless of the solution type or scope, we offer exceptional proficiency in financial and program management as well as a record of 100% on-time, on budget performance. Additionally, Greenleaf’s seasoned personnel security team provides industry-leading turnaround times for our employee’s interim security clearances.

Institutional Support

As agencies work diligently to serve and protect citizens, many often struggle to meet their missions within highly demanding, and often dangerous, work environments. Leaders and staff are stressed as they face rapidly changing demands and threats with under-prepared personnel and sub-optimal processes.

Greenleaf helps agencies meet many of their dynamic human resource challenges with our exceptional Institutional Support services. Our instructional design and training experts offer extensive past performance in training customization, optimization, and administration. They are equally adept at integrating and delivering customized coursework, working with agency subject matter experts to meet their specific content needs. As Greenleaf delivers Institutional Support services, we apply our expertise in the qualities and practices of resilient organizations and people. This unique combination of capabilities enables agencies to elevate performance while positively impacting their cultures with more qualified, knowledgeable, and resilient talent. A sampling of our services includes:

  • Customized Operational and Functional Training
  • Talent Management
  • Process Optimization

Leadership Development

Government leaders operating within the high demands of volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) environments experience cumulative stress and, frequently, unseen burnout. Under intense pressures to be high achievers, many leaders struggle to maintain their wellbeing while ensuring the wellbeing of their work. Most are also unsure of how best to develop the resilience of their staffs.

Greenleaf supports the personal development and growth of government organizations’ current and emerging leaders. We use evidence-based tools and techniques to assess each individual leader in numerous areas that impact resilience. Based on the resulting data and our science-based insights, we implement tailored leadership development programs around critical competencies, including diversity and inclusion, implicit bias, sexual misconduct and unwanted behavior, conflict resolution, resilience, and stress management. We also create and implement strategic frameworks for spreading resilience-building processes and behaviors across teams, departments, and enterprises. The positive outcomes include significant improvements in emotional intelligence, situational awareness, morale, communications, collaboration, and productivity. Our specific leadership development services include:

  • Leadership Assessments
  • Leadership Development Workshops and Programs
  • Strategic Planning and Implementation
  • Executive Coaching

Organizational Wellbeing

Federal organizations with missions tied to helping others are exposed to the negative impacts of cumulative stress and vicarious trauma. Fatigued bodies and brains, scrambled cognition and attention spans, execution errors and absenteeism, low engagement and productivity. For some, the challenges are fairly isolated. For others, it may be a combination of intersecting issues related to policies and processes, cultural dynamics and expectations, leadership behaviors, and shortfalls in staff care activities.

Greenleaf combines assessment insights with scientific and organizational expertise to deliver a holistic roadmap tailored to your wellbeing objectives and unique environment. From ongoing programming to rapid interventions, we help you expertly implement a strategic wellbeing plan in relevant operations. Feeling empowered instead of overwhelmed should be, and can be, the norm for you and your people. Specific related services include: 

  • Enterprise Assessments
  • Organizational Development
  • Workforce Training
  • Change Management
  • Process Improvement

Trauma-Informed Design

Organizations that serve or encounter traumatized populations, such as humanitarian aid providers, are fueled by urgency and high ideals. However, they may lack the tools or lenses to detect the way trauma affects everything they do and everybody they touch. In these fields of work, trauma is a cross-cutting theme that, if ignored, causes negative or poor outcomes. Greenleaf practitioners offer expertise in “Trauma-Informed” principles for which organizations can learn competencies.

The U.S. Government promotes these principles through campaigns by SAMHSA, particularly for organizations that deliver care. Because a diverse range of organizations need and want to incorporate trauma-informed principles, Greenleaf applies trauma-informed design widely and offers customization for very specific missions and operations. From processes and systems to staff knowledge, behaviors and emotional resilience, Greenleaf will help your organization design and culturally embed a trauma-informed way of being. Our services include:

  • Process Assessment
  • Change Management
  • Professional Development
