See the big picture with Grove Services, Workshops and Products

The Grove Consultants International is a San Francisco-based consultancy, founded in 1977 by David Sibbet. Our consultants and tools support organizations, teams, and individuals to envision and achieve change.

The Grove offers a complete range of services: visual facilitation, strategic visioning, trainings, and communication design. We are leaders in using large-scale visualization in real time for strategy, leadership, and team development.

Our approach is rooted in creating panoramic and interactive graphic environments that foster collaboration, action, and change. Our tools for collaboration are informed by more than 30 years of client work on teaming and organization change.

About the methodologies that inform our work.

The Grove was among the first in the field of organization development to use visual techniques. We have been recognized for our work in this field by the Organizational Development Network, an international association of organization-development practitioners. In 2013 David Sibbet received ODN's Lifetime Achievement Award.
