Welcome to TandemSpring


About Us

TandemSpring is NOT that kind of consulting firm.
It is a process of authentic engagement with others in doing good business.


TandemSpring was founded because we were looking for ways to have more meaningful impact when working with others. To do this we had to get above the corporate “rules of the game” that are designed solely for the benefit of those already at the top, and not necessarily those with the most vision or passion. With the understanding that everyone has valuable strengths and talents, they wanted to truly partner with people across all levels of the organization in a way that simultaneously benefited the individual, the community, and the business. Business designed well, non-profit or for profit, can have tremendous impact well beyond the bottom line.
TandemSpring, is about staying true to one’s sense of purpose, leveraging strengths-based approaches, and designing sustainable systems that leverage the talents of the individual and organization. Partnering with good people doing good business is just good for everyone.
