Impacting what happens within and between people in organizations is our best access point to creating a world that works for all.

How people relate to one another, as human beings and not objects, is directly related to what they can achieve together.

When team members care about one another, are safe to talk straight and to disagree, and to hold each other to account, they can exceed what anyone thought was possible.

Leaders are the source of everything that is and isn’t happening in an organization, and everyone is a leader.

Our People

A consulting team that individually and collectively embodies the Dorrier Underwood culture of Authenticity, Accountability, Compassion, and Transformation.


Judith Underwood, co-founder of Dorrier Underwood, died on December 24, 2022 after a long illness. We celebrate her lasting impact on Dorrier Underwood and our commitment to demonstrate what is possible when work is fulfilling and organizations empower people.

Judith was a brilliant leader and remarkable listener. As soon as she discovered who you aspired to be, Judith related to you as that person, keeping your vision in focus and calling you on anything that wasn’t a match for that future. Her clarity and determination were the source of transformations many people might have thought unimaginable.
