Positions Available at Solid Ground



About Solid Ground

The team at Solid Ground Consulting – six great people here in Portland, one in Vermont and other partners around the country – is connected by a common bond:  We want to make a difference.  It’s a desire we share with people in every corner of every community.

As organizational, strategy, and leadership consultants, we’re on this planet to partner with others make a greater impact – to build greater confidence, by expand their capability, and  partnering to discover a clear pathway to achieve their goals.  Within organizations, these are not small things: They often represent transformational changes that can make all the difference in the world.

Solid Ground Consulting approaches organizational development consulting through an integrated approach that organizes our work around four dimensions of organizational impact – leadership, strategy, brand and culture. We are looking to build our expertise in the Culture Practice – guiding organizations as they seek to build an intentional culture including equity and inclusion.

Solid Ground works with nonprofits and public-sector organizations with missions focused on healthy environment, thriving economy and / or vibrant community. Our clients in Oregon and SW Washington are quite varied and we have a national practice in land and water conservation. Our projects range from small planning engagements to complex large scale mergers and strategy initiatives.
