Orrtanna, PA – March 5, 2018 – A new national consulting firm promises to do more than help businesses and non-profit organizations address their most pressing issues. The Gettysburg Group offers a diverse portfolio of services and a team ready to apply their expertise and help position any organization to successfully meet its goals in innovative and meaningful ways.
“Frequently a business, non-profit organization or academic institution engages consultants who focus on one area, when the actual need is for a more comprehensive approach,” said the Rev. Michael Cooper-White, founder and president of The Gettysburg Group.
“Leaders often have the gnawing sense that ‘something isn’t quite right’ or ‘we aren’t reaching our potential and need an outside perspective that might help us expand our reach.’ The Gettysburg Group’s approach is to partner with leaders on the scene in identifying areas where we can be of assistance. Like a good family physician, our diagnoses and recommendations assess and seek to enhance the well-being of the whole person or, in this case, the entire organization,” said Cooper-White.
An initial team of seven spanning the country offers a rich array of services in the following areas: strategic planning and visioning, public relations and marketing, crisis communication, executive coaching and staff training, conflict resolution and dispute mediation, organizational and leadership development, project management, mergers, accreditation and regulatory compliance, proposal development and auditing.
Joining Cooper-White in the new collaborative are his family members who live in Los Angeles, Chicago and Omaha, as well as the Rev. Eric Shafer and Ms. Cheryl Williams of Los Angeles and Baltimore, respectively.
Referring to the new group’s name, Cooper-White, who remains a resident in the historic Gettysburg area where he retired from the presidency of the Lutheran Seminary, explained: “At Gettysburg, the nation’s future was determined when ordinary citizens became adaptive, courageous leaders. Today’s challenging work and service environments likewise require nimble leadership by individuals who, often ‘under fire’, draw upon others’ experiences. We will consider it a privilege to be of assistance to all who may request our help.”
