Mentoring and coaching


Hutt City Budgeting and Advocacy Service, 2014

We were commissioned by Hutt City Budgeting and Advocacy Service, to provide services under the Ministry of Social Development’s Capability Mentor programme. The team provided support to align Hutt City Budgeting and Advocacy to meet the Ministry of Social Development’s goal for funded organisations to report on outcomes. This involved working alongside the grass-roots organisation to conduct an Organisational Self-Assessment, developing a results focused model for the organisation, and developing an Organisational Capability Development Plan.

Pacific Islands Chiefs of Police Secretariat (PICP-S), 2014

The PICP-S supports four programmes through a Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade contract. The four programmes include organising an annual conference, delivering capacity development activities and supporting a Women’s Advisory Network. We worked with the secretariat to build their capacity to collect and report evidence of the work being done with the Chiefs of Police across 21 jurisdictions. The project included aligning the strategic outcomes with the programme activities and developing indicators to measure results.

Newtown Budgeting & Advocacy – Capability Mentor, 2013

As an MSD-approved capability mentor, we worked with Newtown Budgeting & Advocacy Service to complete an organisational self-assessment and capability development plan.  This project involved working collaboratively with the Coordinator, staff, and committee to identify their areas of strength and opportunities for building organisational capability. We facilitated the Committee to develop a clear, one-page model of their Strategic Intent and Plan to focus the committee’s work in the coming year. The Strategic Intent model may be used in future to clearly track the positive difference that the organisation makes to clients and its community.
