“I have been in education many years and have worked with innumerable consultant firms and professional development providers. G&A is among the very best.”

— Principal, Elementary School


We offer customized consulting services to public and private
sector clients to improve their organization’s effectiveness

Through research, evaluation, and planning, G&A helps public and private agencies build their capacity, leverage resources, and improve organizational effectiveness. With over twenty years of experience providing consulting services, G&A has developed its own approach to meet each client’s needs.

The G&A Approach:

  • Participatory: We engage both the client and the consumer of services

  • Asset-focused: We identify strengths, before deficits

  • Research-based: We incorporate best and promising practices

  • Data-informed: We use multiple sources of data throughout our process
