City of Long BeachClient:  City of Long Beach, Planning Bureau and City Manager

Beacon as a prime firm was contracted for a nine-month engagement with the Planning Bureau of the City. We conducted an organizational assessment which helped to identify the problem areas and inform the development and delivery of trainings and management coaching. Topics covered included communication, permissive engagement, recognizing your leadership style, creating a high performance culture, effective project management, public speaking, and professional writing. Beacon further conducted management development group and individual coaching sessions with the management team.

Beacon is additionally providing executive coaching to managerial staff in the office of the City Manager on performance enhancement issues.

“Beacon’s principals, Susanna and Brandon, were retained as a result of a formal employee complaint filed with the City…. Beacon conducted an organizational assessment and used various organizational development, leadership management, and inter-group consensus building techniques, delivering comprehensive services around employee relations, leadership development, team building, project management and communications.  Beacon consistently debriefed management during the engagement and provided a comprehensive final report, with recommendations for further actions to enhance productivity and improve overall team building.  I continue to use Beacon to conduct executive and management coaching and am very satisfied with their services.”
