What are leaders saying about ODA
Successful organizational design and development outcomes require intricate internal navigation and a fine balance of using multiple of approaches ranging from the large scale structured interventions to intense personal conversations. The uniqueness of ODA is that they have managed to achieve this through their engagement with IDFC in last one year! They straddle this full range and that, makes them not only more efficient (one doesn't need to go to multiple organizations) but incredibly more effective at helping the business leaders achieve desired outcomes. I have worked with Santhosh at length and his ability to synthesise the different strands, spot patterns and "suggest, way forward is truly syncretic and often magical!

Refreshing Mission Vision and Values for an organization can be a fairly energizing and unifying experience, if handled deftly. This is exactly how it turned out for us when Santhosh Babu facilitated this initiative with our top leadership team. Santhosh has this unique style of connecting with the audience by understanding the organization environment, and key business drivers. His simplicity of delivery, insightful anecdotes and expertise in human behaviour make him a good choice to facilitate large scale critical people intervention. He has demonstrated this skill several times. Besides helping Max Life team refresh its Vision Mission Values, he has also effectively facilitated multiple Max Group level Leadership meets. Santhosh has been a great partner and we wish him and OD Alternatives all the best!

I have worked with ODA in multiple occasions in the last five years. Facilitating our strategy meet, help our teams manage change, support our leaders through change and building team effectiveness are some of the ares we worked with ODA team. What strikes me is their ability to understand complex organisational contexts along with individual contexts of leaders and design interventions that are innovative, impactful and transformational. There is a personal touch, customized approach and con-ceptual rigor in what ever they do. Driving change and Transformational leadership is something in the core DNA of ODA.

OD Alternatives' deep understanding of people, their behavior, the culture they create in organizations and the essence of leadership traits become visible in anyone's first interaction with any of the ODA consultants. They bring out their insights in Organizational Development and transformation of organizational culture through an extremely creative style of presentation and interaction with their audience. They do not get people lost in the functional jargon of the subjects, instead stick to the 'real ' world. Engaging with the ODA Team is a sure guarantee to generate fresh internal high energy and a renewed sense of purpose for any human being!

Around the time when adversity had hit Ranbaxy from multiple external directions, engagement with ODA was very powerful catalyst for the employees of Ranbaxy at all cascading levels of leadership, to not only emerge successful in dealing with severe crisis but also stay coherently as one team to grow the business - By helping each leader align their inner purpose with the larger goals of the company, ODA strengthened Team Ranbaxy at a very critical time in its history.

ODA is a true customer delight to work with,they go extra mile in diagnosing the problem , providing in-depth solutions and are continuously involved till they deliver the desired change. I have personally worked with Santhosh and Subin - they bring a very different perspective to every discussion, substantiated with their rich experience in Organisation and Leadership Development. It was a great experience working with them on our Leadership Development Journey for Middle Management , it was so powerfully designed with a unique learning map for every participant. We received great feedback on the program from participants and Leadership sponsors- I highly recommend them for any complex Organization Diagnosis, Leadership Coaching and Development assignments.
ODA has helped us through the change management journey. For an year we had multiple interventions with ODA to navigate through the ambiguities when we moved from Lafarge to Nuvoco. ODA also partnered with us in evolving our new vision, mission and values. They understand the organization context quickly, connect at a heart level and design interventions that are impact-ful.
