Our Team

The CG Strategy team is comprised of experienced organization development practitioners. We have a passion for our work that is contagious and inspires our clients to make meaningful changes. We view our organization as a “community” where we practice what we preach. We are committed to learning and every member of our team dedicates time to remain current on the latest trends in our service offerings.

Our team members also invest in formal learning opportunities, which give our clients access to practitioners with masters’ degrees in fields such as public policy and administration, and prestigious certifications in areas such as Project Management, Balanced Scorecard, Executive Coaching, and Organization Development.

In addition to our staff, our community includes a team of partners who both supplement and complement our skills. Thus, we enhance our ability to meet client needs as they arise. We have established long-term relationships with many of our teaming partners and are connected with the larger consulting community through professional organizations and other networks. Our teaming partners include both individuals and companies who are familiar and experienced with our approaches and methodologies.

Hands holding an arrow

Our approach to staffing projects is simple:
