The purpose of this case study and accompanying research is to investigate the viability of superimposing an individual counseling process for change onto an organization. Following research into both human nature and organizational nature, a parallel is made that allows for a common framework for change. An organizational counseling framework was designed involving four phases: visioning, investigating, interpreting, and reorienting. The results of this study show that the process is easily adapted to different contexts, makes use of current theory in practice, provides a clear model to view individuals and organizations and addresses the needs of the individual within the organizational context. The project concludes with a case study that illustrates this process at work in a Southern Alberta high school.
