Create Excellence


Transform Your Organization with Lift

Lift Consulting is a leadership & organizational development consulting firm that builds belief in unconventional assumptions that lead to excellence.


We get excited about teaching people to see beyond existing norms and patterns.  We turn problem solvers into leaders who see the value of using the organizational vision to guide their actions.

Our services focus on leadership, team and culture development. That isn't unique, but the fact that we only accept clients willing to do the real work of change is.  Our purpose is to facilitate true transformation - not compliance.


Let's create excellence together, while achieving your unique goals.

Unleashing Potential

One of the things we take great pride in is our connection to the University of Michigan's Center for Positive Organizations.  Members of our team pioneered research on how to build more successful organizations. 

We believe that early on we are culturally programmed to believe ideas that hold us back from reaching our greatest potential.  These ideas are reinforced by most organizations, but there's good news.  Our mental maps can be changed to tap into latent resources that allow us to achieve more and create excellence. 

Here are a couple of our e-learning videos on changing mental maps.
