CENTRE FOR ADDICTION AND MENTAL HEALTH
As director of organizational development at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, Paula Harrington oversaw the restructuring of a significant business unit within the organization in 2016. To work
through the issues that arose, she facilitated a series of working sessions for the company’s leaders to come together and formulate the proper strategic responses.
Given the ubiquity of mental health-related challenges, CAMH continues to promote measures that contribute to positive mental health among its employees, and to handle change fatigue and uncertainty, all of which are dependent on the HR and organizational development team implementing solid change management practices.
Harrington has more than 20 years of experience in leadership development and coaching, talent strategy and management, organizational design, and change management, and has worked with both Canadian and global organizations in the public and private sectors.
