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.

Partnership with our Clients

Dorrier Underwood works in partnership with companies that are committed to off-the-charts results, not just getting a little bit better. When people discover blindspots that have limited their performance, they start to operate with freedom and joy. Our clients are known for bringing complex projects in on time and on budget, producing “impossible” results.


Where are we as a company regarding race, equity, social justice, following the golden rule, caring, caring about “the least of these,” caring about anybody, caring and reaching out?

There is the statement, “We do not discriminate on the basis of…” and “We hold these truths to be self-evident…”

Our People

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

Track Record

At first I was skeptical when I was asked to participate in yet another “executive corporate culture” workshop and frankly approached my first session with very low expectations. After participating in the first several workshops, I was so impressed with the content and how it related to me that I expanded the participation to my key managers and leaders within my group.

One challenge, especially now, is cost justifying “touchy feely” consulting. However, I can directly tie the work Dorrier Underwood has done with my aftermarket team to a 6% increase in orders in the first 5 months alone. Looking at where we are headed, I fully expect this to be 10% at the end of the year. Dorrier Underwood has enabled us to have open, frank and ego-free conversations, to build an environment of mutual respect and trust, and to be able to work as true teams all driving to a common goal.

Our leadership team is accountable for outcomes rather than the to-do’s to get there, for example, being measured on seeing contingencies that are not predictable. The shift from people giving suggestions to owning their answers is huge.

The Leadership coaching team at Dorrier Underwood is incredible at unlocking our inner ability to solve our own challenges both personally and professionally. They have an uncanny ability to inspire leaders to trust their instincts and accomplish things that may seem impossible.
