Client and Partner Accolades

“I greatly value the CGS team’s expertise in organization development. They offer best practices for how to bring people along to accept change in our complex organization with stakeholders and employees around the country, world and at headquarters in DC.”

– A Senior Government Official

“I think the CG Strategy team brings out the best in what we do, helping us to think through what’s important and articulating that. You make the most of our time together and help us hold productive meetings.”

– A Senior Government Official

“First and foremost, one of the big strengths CGS brings is an almost seamless integration with the government team. They are aware and respectful of the business culture and don’t try to impose an outside consultant culture into our organization. That resonates really well with an organization like ours where we have so many cultures and have skepticism about an outside party coming in.”

“I really had a blast developing our strategic plan because of CG Strategy’s support. You helped us engage in a way that let us bring everyone along in the development of the plan. You used different techniques to get input, made sure people were heard, and communicated the results. We were able to evolve the strategy in a way that was helpful, reacting to the needs and concerns that were expressed. I thought it was awesome. I learned so much and was able to finish that project and say that I really had a pulse on what the organization viewed as important.”
