How do we do it?


Customized Consulting, Planning and Coaching

When we meet a new client, we ask lots of questions and do a lot of listening. This helps us identify the current state of the organization's development and recommend an approach that will address their most pressing needs.

We have worked with clients of many different sizes, in many different industries, and our team brings a fresh perspective to the process of organizational development. Our services include consulting and facilitation, as well as workshops, classes and seminars focused in the following areas:

What Our Clients Say:


"A powerful lesson we learned from the strategic planning process was not to try to be ‘all things to all people, The strategic planning process helped us identify who we wanted to be. It not only enabled us to rename ourselves and prepared us to celebrate our 125th anniversary but also it later helped us refine our core competencies.

Really what occurred was a culture change. Through a highly involved process of working with staff from the agency and our Board, we have weathered the economic downturn and stayed focused."
