People Produce Results

Always putting profit before people can drain your team’s energy. Studies show people are motivated by autonomy, mastery, and purpose.

We believe that leaders with vision who appreciate the value of an engaged workforce lead to great results.

When leaders tap their teams’ talent, team members and employees become more productive, engaged, and generous.

We’ve witnessed this powerful change happen over and over again with our founder’s more than 35 years working in and with corporations, the public sector, and non-profits. And we have the research to back it up.

Our solutions help you reach your performance goals while engaging your employees, bringing out the best in your team members, and not simply retaining your top talent – but tapping the talent of every team member.

At Henson Consulting Group we equip vision-driven and people-centered leaders to produce wildly effective organizations by tapping their team’s latent talents.

Our custom consulting and signature Power N.A.P. (Napkin-sized Action Plan) Solutions accelerate you and your team toward realizing your vision in ways that transform the way you lead.

Who We Are

We are consultants who ultimately realized the limitations of standard business theory. We’ve been trained in business schools and corporations to adjust the precise land, labor, and capital dials to produce remarkable shareholder wealth.

Conventional triad of finite resources: Land. Labor. Capital.

Conventional benefactor: Shareholder.

Our first discovery: The conventional business approach is emotionally bankrupt and ironically costly to companies.

Our second discovery: The only infinite resource in a company is people.

We work with mission-driven organizations defined as triple bottom line corporations, government agencies, and non-profits.

The new triad of resources: people, planet, profit.

We have perfected our business models to balance people’s natural tendencies towards goodness to produce improved business results. We work with organizations that want to tap the greatest talent already present in the organization.

The exponential benefits: more satisfying and virtuous results for individuals, families, businesses, society, and shareholders.

I believe leadership is about taking people to a place they would not go on their own. It’s a significant responsibility when a person is placed in a leadership role.

I also believe that people – employees and team members – want to contribute meaningfully and do a good job.

Beginning with those beliefs, any difficulty between leadership and employees is not personal or about the personality, but likely about misalignment or misunderstandings – and those matters are solvable with the right focus, dialogue, and tools.”

Cindy Henson is an experienced consultant and deft problem-solver who combines an engineer’s mind with a coach’s heart. For over 35 years, Cindy has taken on big projects involving thousands of employees with elegant, workable solutions.

Her re-engineering of San Diego County’s Financial and HR information technology systems helped 20,000 people work more optimally while allowing the county to meet its financial requirements.

I believe work is the sand box for which a person can fully express both the professional and the personal side of themselves. Balancing the needs of an organization with the whole person is a tricky dance. Yet, when people, leaders, and employees discover and express their gifts and natural talents, we all win – the person, the organization, the customers, colleagues, society, and beyond. Focusing on people is the first step to create this level of impact.”

  • Every successful executive has a coach and Cindy is amongst the top 10%.  She possesses the perfect blend of business acumen, continuous improvement methodology and organizational psychology.  I have been through many growth and turnaround stories, but none were faster, realized better results and were more satisfying than when I contracted Cindy.  I use her services still today and recommend you do also!

  • Cindy has an ingrained passion to help people and teams identify their goals and systematically dismantle the obstacles to their success. I've been a client of Cindy for over four years and regardless of the need you will be more than pleased with the results and value Cindy produces. Cindy has been nothing short of phenomenal for me from individual coaching to team training to facilitating executive alignment - she does it all flawlessly. Cindy is a true partner, leader and coach.

  • Cindy has this uncanny ability to get you to your own realizations – making you feel as if you knew the answer all along.  Because you get there yourself, the learnings become ingrained and just feel natural. I find myself using the things she taught me over and over again in my job, and when I do, I always smile to myself and think "Damn, Cindy is good."

    Kamie Kennedy VP of Lifecycle Marketing, Craftsy
  • Cindy’s coaching helped me articulate not only what I was looking to do, but more importantly, the necessary steps to do it.  She doesn’t use a cookie cutter approach, but listens to understand, and then helps figure out what will work best in that scenario.  She helps you lead authentically because she learns what you can genuinely implement. I’ve learned so much about leadership from Cindy because she truly is a leader!

    Mandy Mills Animal Care Facility Administrator City of Chula Vista
  • Cindy Henson’s executive coaching sessions challenged me to not only figure out what my leadership style is but also to be excited about how far it could take me professionally.  One of many epiphanies I experienced during our coaching sessions is that leading an organization and managing people are not one in the same. Cindy has also developed and facilitated staff one-day retreats and team-building sessions when our agency has experienced key staffing changes and plain burn-out. She has such an in-depth knowledge of all facets of human resources and a creative way of helping professionals to understand the important relationship of leadership, teamwork, motivation, and great results.  The best in the field!

    Carolyn Emery Executive Officer, Orange County Local Agency Formation (OC LAFCO)
  • Hi Cindy, I really wanted to thank you for Thursday. It was hard, but then worthwhile change always is. I have felt stagnated in my personal growth since we last saw each other and you gave me the kick in the pants I needed. I really meant it when I said you were a genius. I really felt in the moment that you needed to hear that. You really are genius. You build people up. You listen non – judgmentally and you have pushed me in directions I didn’t even know I needed to go. Thank you for coming into the mud with me. You will never know how eternally grateful I am.

    Elaine Adlam Registered Nurse, Student Health Services
  • I have counted on Cindy to help me stay centered as I have faced challenging situations in my work. I feel stronger and more secure in my professional life knowing that Cindy’s coaching is a resource that I can call on when needed.

    Jennifer Mazzon Product Director, Coursera for Business and Government
  • Cindy has been the single-most important key to our success by way of plotting a course for our organization that began with thought-provoking, yet targeted questions.  Her inclusiveness and truly caring style helped us identify the best in ourselves, and create a path to provide the best to those we serve.
