Our Expertise

Organizational Design & Development

Welcome to Mindshift Consulting. We offer organizational design and development services for leadership and organizational excellence. A key element in everything we do is design: it is the strategy for leading a change or transforming a culture; and it is the structure of community building and the foundation for effective leadership development. Our leadership engagements offer personal and professional development aimed at real world application and returns. Design work toward organizational excellence can involve strategy, structure, process, and culture, and of course, change. Whatever your needs may be, we can help.

The challenge for leaders today is to guide an organization in the midst of navigating uncertainty and change, where even the best can find their capabilities stretched. To stay fresh and on top of their game, leaders need time to restore energy and regain perspective. Coming from a deep understanding of people and organizations, we offer distinctive development opportunities to refresh and renew. Opportunities for personal and professional development range from developing greater self awareness and self discipline, to team and organizational skills based in learning streams like leadership, communications, strategy, change, and culture.

Through meaningful conversation, discovery work, and design, together, we clarify purpose and strategy, increase awareness and learning, build capability, and improve outcomes. We design stucture and process to support your strategy, connecting our work to your organization's purpose and values. We design engagements to help you build these capabilities within, and we design them as developmental experiences, because every change is also about development and growth. Located in Montara, California, 20 miles south of San Francisco, Mindshift accelerates organizational effectiveness and personal development. We enable you to see yourself and your organization 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. Flow is an essential strategy.

Developing Organizations

A living systems perspective.


Organizations, like any living system, are complex patterns of behavior evolving through continual transformation. Add the variables of growth, global markets, technology, diversity, human desire, and relentless change, and things get interesting. The balance to complexity is simplicity. Using our MC3 process, we create simple solutions and sound strategies, We help organizations evolve to meet their future.

developing people

Communities of shared learning.


We believe the primary role of an organization is to learn. Logic follows that the role of leadership is to create a learning organization and to continually develop people through shared learning experiences. We design consulting and coaching engagements that combine personal and professional development with insight and real world application. In our learning experiences, leaders observe, reflect, and renew. 

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.
