Howell Consulting Group?

Howell Consulting Group is a small organizational development consulting firm based in San Diego County. We have extensive experience with non-profits, community driven and guided initiatives. We are able to serve our clients on initiatives and projects throughout the world.

We offer a very broad range of organizational development and capacity building services. While many of our services cut across different industries and sectors, overtime we have come to specialize in specific arenas, such as early childhood prevention and education, arts education, and domestic violence and sexual assault, just to name a few.

We are a small team and are dedicated to high quality and customized services. We collaborate with a myriad of other consultants, firms, and specialists in our industry. We are a learning organization, and believe that these relationships help strengthen our knowledge and abilities.

Our Beliefs, Mission, and Core Values

We are selective in choosing both clients and collaborators;

Our Clients: we believe to best serve our clients, our values, beliefs and mission must be in alignment with our clients'. Additionally we believe in being as passionate about our clients goals as our client is about thier goals. This ensures that you, the client, will be successful in your mission while we are successful in serving you. We consider the HCG-Client relationship, a partnership. As a consulting firm, word-of-mouth is our most common and most valued marketing tool and we believe that we are not successful if our clients are not successful.

Our Process: in our HCG-Client relationships, communication is herald as our most important asset. We begin our relationships with others by having a conversation about the client's organization, goals, needs, etc. and follow that with an explanation about HCG, who we are, how we do business, our history, our staff and partners, if we feel we are a good match to help, and if so, how we would help. During all levels of the process, we encourage open and constructive dialogue; most of our client relationships last no less than a year, and many times continue for more than three years. Open and continous communication with our clients ensures that our client's needs are always met and that HCG has maintained our quality service and tools at every level.

Our Collaborators: they are as important to us as our own independent employees; our collaborators don't only represent Howell Consulting Group, but they represent our values. We bring on a collaborator only after we have directly worked with them and seen positive results directly impacted from their work.

Pointing us in the right direction...

“Thank you for helping us update our strategic plan and solidify the implementation process.  It’s going great!  You do an amazing job and I VERY MUCH loved working with you and appreciate all your help in pointing us in the right direction.”

Made the difference...

“Howell Consulting Group made clear the difference between real accomplishments and interminable discussion of possible options. They brought together and re-ignighted engaged collaborative partner agencies and a group with diminishing interest and attendance.  Their approach to strategic action planning and their action plan follow-up meetings provided us cohesive plans with benchmarks and real-world achievements.  We would definitely hire HCG again!”
