Over the last few months, our team has consulted with different organizations of various sizes and spoken at several conferences of government leaders.
In Boston at the annual conference of the International City/County Management Association Patrick presented his “Your Leadership Playbook” workshop.
The City of Chandler, Arizona retained the Mejorando Group to design their inaugural Succession Planning Program. Our report outlining the City’s new competency model for non-supervisors, supervisors, managers and leaders was provided in late October. The next step is the creation of a Pilot Leadership Development Program.
Patrick designed and facilitated an Advance meeting with the Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services Department of the City of San Jose, California. The intent was to embed into the workplace culture the entrepreneurial approach of delivering department services.

Patrick designed and facilitated an Advance meeting with senior management team members of the City of Austin (TX) Community Services area, including Animal Services, Health and Human Services, Library, Parks and Recreation and Neighborhood Housing and Community Development departments. The purpose was to ensure group cohesion in the City’s approach of converting the headwinds of change into a tailwind of opportunity.
The City of San Jose, California retained the Mejorando Group to develop a Workforce Planning Program. The City has experienced unprecedented budget reductions resulting in the loss of a number of seasoned workforce members. Fortunately, the budget situation has improved and organizational leaders wanted to clarify a path forward on ways to equip the City’s workforce with the capabilities necessary to succeed in the 21st century. Our team’s report was provided in October and offered a series of progressive strategies to restore the City’s Employer Brand and immediately improve the City’s recruitment, selection, succession planning and learning and development efforts.
In Monterey, Patrick presented “Succession Planning: The Sequel” at the annual conference of the California Public Employer Labor Relations Association.
The Mejorando Group was selected to conduct a Service Delivery Optimization Study for the Town of Queen Creek, Arizona. After scores of employees were laid-off, resulting from a 40% decline in their general fund revenue, trends are showing an uptick in residential and commercial development and the budget is on the mend. Our report provided in mid-October included a series of synchronized recommendations to make immediate improvements to service delivery through added staffing, better use of technology and enhancing internal business processes.
