Our Expertise

Design & Development

Whether your need is around strategy, change, leadership, or transformation, it is a matter of design. We base our work on design principles like flow. We consider how our work will result in a flow of new ideas and energy across your culture, new insights flowing within the conversations of leadership, better process flow, or a steady stream of products. Whatever your need, we design engagements as developmental experiences, because every change is also about development.

The challenge for leaders today is to guide an organization in the midst of navigating uncertainty and constant change. Even the best, at times, can find their capabilities stretched. To stay fresh, leaders need time to restore energy and perspective. Using our deep understanding of people and organizations, we offer development opportunities and time for renewal. Located in Montara, California, 20 miles south of San Francisco, Mindshift accelerates organizational effectiveness and personal development, and enables you to see yourself, your organization and your culture with new possibility.

the leader within

To see ourselves differenly takes a willingness to look again at our basic assumptions.

embracing Change

The pace of change is relentless. Resistance is futile. Organizations evolve to survive. 

design for organizations

By necessity, organizational structure is changing, and so is design. An ability to flow is essential.

Developing Organizations

A living systems perspective.


Human systems are living systems, and like human nature, messy. Add the variables of growth, global markets, technology, diversity, human desire, and relentless change, and things get complex. The balance to this is simplicity. Our focus is to bring this balance to your leadership, learning, and every change and transformation. We help organizations evolve to meet their future.

developing people

Communities of shared learning.


If the primary role of an organization is to learn, then the role of a learning organization is to continually develops its people through shared learning experiences. We design consulting and coaching engagements that combine personal and professional development with insight and real world application. Our learning experiences offer reflection and renewal. 

about you

Opportunities for change and learning exist in many forms, from strategic alignment, vision and group work, to mergers and acquisitions, retooling your systems, and upgrading your talent. Every engagement offers opportunities for learning. Results are shaped by the intent of your design, what you move toward, and what you're willing to do differently. We look forward to working with you.
