Through high-quality professional development seminars, classroom observations and individualized coaching sessions for teachers, the Organizations In Training (OIT) staff transformed our school climate by providing our faculty with the knowledge and skills required to empower our inner-city youth and create a culture of accountability at our Charter School. We are grateful to James Giantis, Shane Walton and their team for their unwavering commitment to providing opportunities and hope to all San Diego youth.
OIT has made a lasting positive impact on our students. The OIT team has a strong ability to connect with the students that they work with to systematically teach them essential skills that increase self awareness and promote interpersonal problem solving.
Parents come to the OIT workshops because they look forward to the honest conversations and learning why they and their children interact the way they do. Parents return to the OIT workshops because they feel more proactive, positive and capable. I believe that OIT has had a huge impact on the behavior of students and parents because of the genuine and caring relationships they build and the trusting environment they create.
Before OIT was introduced to our organization, we were lacking in performance, problem solving and overall well-being. We were not providing the service to our clients that we had set out to in the beginning and our team was losing faith in our mission. OIT worked side by side with our organization and TOGETHER we were able to analyze and understand the problems as well as bring to the surface some of the internal struggles that each of us had that affected our performance. OIT helped us develop new and improved skills, a more effective problem solving process and a new vision that our organization can now believe in and strive for.
I am a believer. Before consulting OIT our organization faltered and struggled to accomplish even the simplist tasks as a team. There was no accountability, poor leadership, excessive demands, and no clear system set in place. Through the diligent work we as an organization have done with OIT, we are now a well oiled machine. Our entire team understands their roles within the organization, their purpose is clearly defined, and the TEAM is now all moving together in the same direction. The work required to get to the place we are now was extremely intensive. Many of us were forced to take a deep look within ourselves and truly examine who we were, are, and want to be.I’m confident that as our organization continues to grow and evolve that we will be able to maintain our new found hope, joy, and purpose collectively. Without the present system that OIT clearly laid out and defined, where we are and are going would have never been possible. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Hiring OIT was the best decision I’ve made since starting the organization. Their team helped guide myself and my employees to uncover the issues holding back productivity and effectiveness and get to the core of what drives us and makes our organization great. The cloud has been lifted and my employees are activated and more engaged than ever before. OIT let us be ourselves and never preached or came from a place of arrogance. Their approach put us at ease and helped break through our discomforts. If you’re looking to take your organization to the next level I fully recommend OIT and the system they stand for.
