ODRL was founded by Dr Kay Sahdev in 1996; she is driven by a personal commitment to enhance organisational performance through strengths-based approaches, talent management, employee engagement and culture change. Kay has substantial experience of helping leaders understand the process change and how it affects people, organisation structures, customers, and HR systems and processes. She has conducted extensive research to explore the impact of organisation change/downsizing/restructuring on people management activities and productivity of organisations. Findings of her research conducted in diverse organisations such as manufacturing, utility, banking and local government sectors using the case study methodology have been published in a book entitled: Creating a Resilient Workforce: FT/Prentice Hall Publishing. Through in-depth case studies Kay has developed an organisational model for building and sustaining resilient organisations which forms the basis of much of ODRL’s work with organisations aspiring to achieve and sustain excellence. Her approach to learning and development and change management is a synthesis of the principles of organisational psychology, positive psychology and systemic models of change.
ODRL has over 150 highly qualified and skilled consultants located world-wide with over fifteen years’ experience of working with large, complex and global organisations. Based on the needs of our clients we put together teams to design and deliver programmes.
