Organizational Consulting


Big, small, city, state, federal, local, national, nonprofit, for-profit: it’s hard to find an area in which Laura has not worked.

Often she gets a call when something in an organization is really, really not going well—perhaps the staff is in crisis, or an agency finds it is faltering in its ability to fulfill its mission. At other times the call is proactive—organizations may want to see if they are doing their best for their workers before they burn out. Either way, we will get to know your organization and help you discover where the stressors lie, and what you can do about them.

The consulting relationship can last anywhere from a few hours to a few years. We are here to help you figure out what is the most efficient and effective use of your resources and time and what would best meet your needs.
