Leadership Savvy has worked with 6 strategic restructures outside of Los Angeles, across the country. We have worked on 4 strategic restructures in the Los Angeles area. 2 were merger exploration projects under another consulting firm, one was to develop a collective impact model, and one is currently undergoing strategic partnership/merger exploration. 1) Community Health Partnership This project brought together a county level human services agency and multiple ethnic communities to address health inequities for under-served communities. As the lead facilitator representing a joint-powers agreement council of 15 cities, we embarked on a partnership exploration process to better engage and serve the health needs of SE Asians, African and African Immigrants, Latino and mainstream communities. We facilitated strategy meetings and developed a shared partnership structure. Together we identified a joint vision and created a collaborative to help underserved communities be more aware and engaged in improving health outcomes. The partnership was a success and received significant state funding to provide culturally informed substance abuse programs. What started as disparate groups ended up in a cohesive partnership, where communities were more empowered, connected, and making meaningful impact at the program and policy level. 2) Joint Community Police Partnership As a representative of a Human Services Council (a quasi governmental agency), we worked in partnership with two police departments and their Community Liaisons. The vision was to foster healthy relationships between the police and the increasingly diverse community. The partnership worked with community members and leaders (adults and youth of diverse backgrounds) to define shared goals and actions. The effort also included partnerships with city council members, the county, nonprofit organizations, local businesses, schools, and the faith community. It was a huge success and an important model for community-policing partnerships. 3) Community Schools Health Resource Center In 2009 Independent School District 286 was facing serious academic and wellness issues of their students. Fortunately, under the leadership of the Superintendent, we were able to bring in over 100 community partners to help meet the needs of children and families. One of the most prominent success stories was a partnership between the school district, a medical clinic, children’s dental clinic, and a mental health agency. Recognizing the needs of students and families were rooted in health and wellness, we brought the agencies together to collaboratively design a community health clinic. The process including convening a planning council, hosting community forums, navigating data sharing, pursing funding and partnerships. In record time, a community clinic was built into the high school, as well as additional health resource rooms across the district.
