Relational Coordination for Change

Please email RCRCinfo@brandeis.edu if you are interested in this training

This 13-week online course taught by Dr. Jody Hoffer Gittell (RCRC, Brandeis University), with coaching provided by certified professionals, develops relational leadership capacity for leading relational coordination change projects. This program is highly practitioner focused, helping leaders and teams through the stages of change in their own organization. You will launch a Change Team to carry out the work. As a team, you will assess the current state of relational coordination to identify areas of strength and weakness using the Relational Mapping Tool and/or the Relational Coordination Survey. You will identify the structures in your organization that weaken or strengthen relational coordination using the Organizational Structures Assessment Tool. 

Moving from analysis to action, your Change Team will engage with key stakeholders and use tools offered by this program to refine the scope of your change project and carry it out successfully. You will develop and practice potential intervention strategies. Your Change Team will use the Relational Model of Organizational Change as a guiding framework to design interventions.


The RCRC training certification process certifies that the content and pedagogy of the training program is consistent with the principles of relational coordination.
