The practice of organizational psychology consists of intervening within organizations to achieve one or more of the following objectives:
- Strengthen Leader Effectiveness
- Identify, assess, coach Emerging Leaders
- Align organizational outcomes with Strategic Direction
- Improve Work Stream processes and relationships
- Enhance performance
- Strengthen Inclusion strategies
- Increase employee engagement
Always within the context of organizational strategy, interventions may focus on individuals, project teams, groups, cross-functional groups or whole organizations. Methods of intervention derive from explicit psychological concepts and practical leadership approaches appropriate to the strategic objectives of the entities engaged.
When fully utilized, the practice of organizational psychology begins with assessment or diagnosis, proceeds to design and implementation, and concludes with evaluation of the efforts of focus. Organizational psychology is practiced with service delivering and product generating organizations from the public, private and not-for-profit sectors.
