What We Believe, How We Work


Jeff & Linda RussellRussell Consulting, Inc. was founded in 1987 with the vision of building effective, productive, healthy, and enduring organizations. Since our creation, we have worked hard to create significant value for our clients by helping them identify and understand where they are today . . . and where they must go tomorrow to achieve their goals.

We hold a mirror up to the lives of our client organizations-which enables them to see what they need to see so that they can do what they need to do. We don-€™t provide answers to our clients, we guide them in discovering their own path.

The best solutions to the challenges you face are those you discover through professional challenge and direction. That-€™s the role that Russell Consulting can play in your organization.
