Bringing about Profound Change

While some client relationships focus on single projects, more often they are the start of larger organizational culture and mindset shifts. We make a very personal connection to the work, walking beside you to help you see your work through new eyes. Clients quickly learn that Gary Hubbell Consulting can provide them with the tools and the guidance to operate in ways that creates new openings and resources, greater alignment, and sustained positive change and impact.

Our clients reflect every sector:

  • Social Sector/Nonprofit Clients—Executives, boards, and individuals within educational institutions (private and public); healthcare providers and systems (acute, long term and specialty care); social service, religious, and cultural organizations; associations and foundations.
  • Proprietary/For-Profit Companies— Executives, boards, and individuals within mid-size companies where the founder/CEO has hold of the tiller and is growing a capable executive management team.
  • Individual Consultants and Coaches—new to private practice or those with long-standing offerings who feel a need to shift or reposition. We help these individuals reimagine their work and what too often feels like the constant tug away from the creative impulse in order to address the tyranny of the immediate logistics of running a small/or solo service business.

Clients seek us out because they intuitively feel that the relentless pace of change requires adaptation. Many of the 1.0 (and even the 2.0) solutions are no longer adequate. Many of those clients—you perhaps?—want a thinking partner who can quickly get what you do and help you illuminate what’s good and grow it. This is a recipe for success and for strong mutually fulfilling relationships built on trust. Repeat engagement—with some partnerships spanning decades—are hallmarks of our practice.
