Our Expertise

Design & Development

Whether your need is a new strategy, leadership development, or a major transformation, it is also about design. We base our work on design principles. One such principle is flow. We ask: How will our work together result in a flow of new ideas and energy across your culture, new insights flowing within the conversations of leadership, better process flow, a steady stream of product design, or a revolution in your market space? Whatever your need, we design engagements as developmental experiences for everyone involved, 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 can find their capabilities stretched at times. 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 aims to accelerate organizational effectiveness and personal development, and to help you 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

The primary role of an organization is to learn.


A learning organization is an organization that 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 exist in many forms, from strategic alignment, vision and group work, to mergers and acquisitions, retooling your systems, and upgrading your talent. In the end, you get what you design for and move toward. We look forward to working with you.
