Our Mission

Training and Organizational Development (T&OD) provides professional development services for individuals and teams within the NC State University employee community and to External Partners.  Our services include organizational consulting, individual coaching, instructor-led and online learning, and both leadership and policy certificate programs, which result in a culture of continuous improvement.


Organizational Development & Custom Initiatives

T&OD consultants partner with university leaders, work teams and individuals to build custom programs using tools, metrics and content that are utilized in our established leadership certificate programs.  We design and develop the best solution to assist you and your team in achieving high team morale and greater productivity.  Our solutions for strategic planning, goal setting and team-building sessions enable higher-performing work environments.  T&OD works with many units across campus to assess the needs of managers and teams in order to deliver the best practices that result in greater workplace cohesiveness and achievement.
