Services Provided

CLC Consulting provides an array of consulting services that focus on




Engagement Process

An initial telephone discussion will start the process to determine if the services available through CLC Consulting meet the needs of your organization. Once need is determined, a more detailed conversation will be scheduled to discuss your needs and expectations. This can be arranged through a face-to-face meeting or video conferencing. CLC Consulting will then submit a complete proposal with all associated costs for review and approval. CLC Consulting requires that the approval of the proposal be made by a person who has the financial authority to enter into contracts.


Person-centered thinking is a two-day intensive training using the curriculum developed by the Learning Community for Person-Centered Practices written by Michael Smull and SDA Associates. The trainers are certified person-centered thinking trainers who will lead the two-day training.
