About Us

FACILITATE. MOBILIZE. BUILD.

Transform Consulting Group is a woman-owned consulting firm with staff across Indiana and Michigan. We work with government, nonprofit, education, and communities that are addressing complex social issues. Whether it’s helping organizations disseminate data to stakeholders, diversify funding, build capacity to manage projects, or create systems for managing projects – we come alongside our clients to offer tangible solutions for accelerating their impact. 

Our #Transformers are mission-driven. We’re former practitioners, social workers, and educators who have worked in the field and are driven by a desire to change communities for the better. We’re passionate about helping our clients make lasting changes in the lives of children and families.

Our Approach

COLLABORATE

We follow a participatory approach with our work.  We believe in the importance of building our clients capacity to sustain the work that we start beyond our engagement.  By working closely with our clients, we increase buy-in and ownership and are also equipping them and their team to accelerate the work.

ASSESS

Before we take any action, we ground our work in the data to make best practice recommendations.  We gather the latest trends and research in the industry and collect new data, if necessary.  Then we will benchmark successful strategies, identify gaps and opportunities and develop a solid plan for the future.

FACILITATE

We often see many planning team members who want to jump into the strategies and problem-solve the needs/ gaps identified. The first step in consensus building is to reach agreement on the “What” you want to accomplish. We call this setting your big goals and top areas of focus. Once you have this set, then you can get into the “How” you will accomplish your goals through strategies.

CREATE

We design, develop and recommend plans, policies, programs and reports to accelerate our clients’ timeframe to achieve these opportunities creating greater impact. As partners with our clients, we monitor the success and outcomes of each project to ensure we are making a difference.

Standing Against Racism & Working Toward Equity

My project-1 (3)

In our work, internally and externally, we strive to create equitable environments and outcomes. We know that we cannot achieve our goal of improving communities without facing and addressing current inequities. Marginalized and racialized people face hurdles that other groups simply do not. We need to understand this current reality so we can work to change it. Internally, our team is reading books, looking at data, and having conversations to understand the world as it is, our individual experiences and biases, and how these factors impact our work. In our client projects, we work to bring a lens of equity to all we do. We know we won’t always get it right, and we know we have to keep at it regardless. We strive to apply our core value of continuous quality improvement to ensure we are improving in our efforts to stand against racism and create a more equitable world.
