Organizational Development Consulting

When the leaders and teams in organizations don’t have a clear understanding of how what they do directly impacts the overall Mission, they can feel confused, disengaged, unmotivated and unappreciated. We help leaders, their teams and their organizations gain alignment to reverse the negative effects that are always a result of mis-alignment and lack of clarity.

We help leaders by providing the ‘voice of an expert’  to help convey the importance of developing and maintaining a culture that aligns with the values of the organization.

Blending multiple cultures together is no easy task. There is a strategy to doing everything possible to make this succeed. We help you navigate the white waters of change, reorganization, integration and cultural transformation. Having a partner who has been a part of many change efforts can help you get it right for your unique organization. 

Let us help you identify your gaps and help you strategically bridge these gaps so that they don’t derail all of your efforts to succeed. If you are human, working with other humans, there are certainly communication challenges. These can easily be improved and overcome with the right strategies and an aligned leadership team who is committed to transparency and clarity. This is often easier said than done, but it’s possible, if you use a hi-performance strategy and commit to being consistent. 

What our clients say.

“Darrell was the right person at the right time for our leadership team. He very constructively called us on some of our unhealthy behavior and set us up for some of the most productive years I have spent with my organization. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Darrell for any organizational coaching, team building or retreat facilitation.”


“I’m truly pleased to have worked with Darrell Hammond, Sr. He is among the best consultants that I’ve had an opportunity with which to work. If you have an opportunity to consider his services, I strongly recommend that you do so!”

Executive Director

“Darrell has worked in organizations ranging from high-tech to non-profit. His organizational development expertise is not organization or industry specific and he is a subject matter expert in this field.”  Watch a video interview with Dave
