"Dr. Chordas is a great facilitator, he allows participants room to flush out ideas but is skilled at reining them in when inevitably folks stray off topic."

What is organizational Development?

Where is the organization now?   Where does it need to go?   How will it get there?

Emerging from human relations studies in the 1930’s, psychologists realized that organizational structures and processes influence worker behavior and motivation.

Organizational Development is the general term used to describe the study of successful organizational change and performance.

CS limited utilizes techinques adopted from Organizational Development to assess and improve operations, profitability, and employee morale. Our main services include…

Strategic Planning

Strategic Planning is a process of determining what an organization intends to be and how it will get there. It sets priorities, focus energy and resources, strengthen operations, ensure that employees and other stakeholders are working toward common goals, establish agreement around intended outcomes/results, and assess and adjust the organization’s.

Resource Planning

Resource Management is the efficient and effective development of an organization’s resources when they are needed. Such resources may include financial resources, inventory, human skills, production resources, or information technology and natural resources.

Conflict Management

Conflict Management is the process of limiting the negative aspects of conflict while increasing the positive aspects of conflict. The aim of conflict management is to enhance learning and group outcomes, including effectiveness or performance in an organizational setting.


Leadership/Staff Training

Leadership training expands the capacity of individuals to perform in leadership roles within organizations. Leadership roles are those that facilitate execution of a company’s strategy through building alignment, winning mindshare and growing the capabilities of others.


Funding is all important with any nonprofit organization. We can help facilitate the process of research and writing grant proposals to help your organization succeed and grow.
