Design for Change

Organizational Design | Personal Development

Consider what all organizations have in common—people working together to achieve a shared vision, cultures producing, leaders guiding the organization in the face of uncertainty, everything moving in a state of constant change. Yet, success ultimately depends on how well your people can adapt. What differs from one organization to another is the ability to change, to adapt and integrate with the world around us. From within the organization, it is about intention.

At Mindshift, our expertise is the human side of management—helping people and organizations develop and change. Much of our work is transformational. Transformation begins with a change in intention, followed by direction and form. Within this process, identity may also change. We design approaches to change. Our services include counsel, leadership development, executive coaching, and strategic communications.

Productive organizations have vibrant cultures. Leaders are challenged today to create a powerful culture while guiding an organization in the midst of uncertainty and change. Even the best can find their capabilities stretched. Successful leaders thrive on meeting the future with uncompromising truth. To help, we design learning engagements aimed at elevating awareness, developing insight, and expanding the view. With our deep understanding of people and organizations, we offer distinctive leadership opportunities for personal and professional development. Our coaching practice delivers skills with real world application.

Located in Montara, California, 20 miles south of San Francisco, Mindshift Consulting accelerates organizational effectiveness and personal development. We enable you to see yourself and your organization with new possibility. We are organizational psychologists who bring extensive knowledge and experience in both human and organizational behavior. At Mindshift, you will not work with junior staff. If you have a need, let's get started. Describe the change you want to make, for yourself or your organization.

embracing Change

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

Designing 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

We look forward to working with you. If you'd like, please share a little about what you want to do differently, either personally or with your organization. This will go directly to me, the founder of Mindshift. As you know, we offer opportunities for change. From my own experience working with industry leaders like HP, Cisco, and Genentech, results are shaped by intention, design, and commitment. If you have a current need, let's get started. Describe the change you want to make for yourself or your organization.
