NP Linder Consulting offers process and analysis services to individuals, groups and leaders in nonprofit and government social services, healthcare and education sectors.

We also offer Workshops on topics that support sustainable change.


Types of Services Available:

Systems-thinking based Organizational Development, including:

  • Meeting design and facilitation
  • Organizational analysis
  • Board & leadership retreats

Specializing in complex change intiatives involving diverse stakeholder groups


Work with Leaders
We work with leaders to identify key elements of change, critical leverage points and clear strategies for engagement and alignment to get to desired short-term results while considering long-term consequences and issues of sustainability.

Work with Groups
We offer highly engaging meeting design and facilitation for ½ day, full-day and multi-day events. Our emphasis is on accomplishing clients’ immediate goals while enriching the group’s capacity to work better together over time.

Work with Individuals
We firmly believe that real change in the world begins on the inside: with each person working on his or her own understanding of the world, building communications skills and using personal strengths. NP Linder Consulting helps individuals—from new executives to line staff—make the most of their positions and their selves as change agents in their work and lives.

Workshops & Training
Our engaging and informative workshops are tailored to organizations’ needs to support specific change or growth strategies.
Topics Include:

  • Applying Systems Thinking to Complex Change
  • Identifying Leverage Points within a System
  • Making the Most of Change
