Consulting and Advisory Services

Leaders and Leadership

There is no argument that effective leadership and management at all levels is critical to an organization’s success. Leadership shapes culture. Management effectiveness is enhanced by leadership skills and behaviors. Becoming an effective leader at any level in an organization requires more than just reading articles or books. It requires developing specific mental models, skill sets, behaviors and competencies to effectively manage, improve, develop team capability and shape culture. Our consulting services include leadership assessments, coaching, mentoring, retreat facilitation and an expert external advisor to senior leadership teams. We work closely and advise senior leadership teams leading organizational culture transformations and pursing high reliability. MdP Associates also helps organizations design and deliver leadership and management skills training and development and can provide customized leadership training and workshops.


We assist clients with strategic thinking, environmental analysis, competitive positioning, strategy development, strategic planning and execution planning.  We help senior leaders and Boards navigate the changing landscape and provide expert assistance in developing strategy and plans consistent with the organization’s Mission and Vision.   Just as important as developing a clear strategy is operationalizing and executing the plans.  We help leaders create alignment between strategy and day-to-day operations across the organization so that there is line-of-sight between the efforts of the front lines and the overall aims and strategy of the organization. 

Governance and Boards

The need for effective governance in health care and non-profit organizations has never been more acute. Maintaining the right balance between the role of governance and the role of management is critical.

Our services include issue resolution, board effectiveness assessments, governance education, retreat facilitation and external resource for ongoing governance support.
