Discover a path forward that addresses complex needs, with critical insight and buy-in from many stakeholders

Our facilitation is top-notch, and our approach is driven by Appreciative Inquiry. That is, we reframe problems through a lens of strength and possibility. We engage stakeholders with diverse perspectives to reflect and listen to each other, guiding the group to develop a cohesive path forward. We offer meeting design and facilitation for board and staff retreats, visioning sessions, advisory councils, public meetings, working groups, etc.


“It was our pleasure to work with the DeYoung Consulting Services team as they worked with us to develop and facilitate our Youthprise 2020 kick-off staff retreat. We appreciated their team’s collaborative approach to the facilitation of our group meetings; and the leadership and guidance they provided to ensure that equity played a substantial role in our team exercises.” Wokie Weah, President of Youthprise
