Leadership218Consulting (formerly Paradigm Consulting Group) began in Mobile, Alabama in 1998, and is currently based out of Huntsville, AL.  Our on-site and distance consulting have allowed us to reach far beyond our main office. The foundational concept for consulting is that an outside resource can often see things, events, or possibilities that those inside cannot easily see.

Our name is taken from one of the most significant leadership events in the Bible. Moses, a great leader for God’s people, was doing his best to lead and manage the nation of Israel. One day, his father-in-law came to visit. After observing Moses in action for a while, he pulled him aside and offered wise counsel that enabled Moses’ leadership to become highly effective.

This event is found in the 2nd book of the Bible, the 18th chapter.

Over the years, 218Consulting has been able to bring insights and possibilities to individuals and organizations. We are pleased to have played a significant role in helping our clients achieve their goals and live out their dreams.

Our consultants have significant experience in their respective arenas. Combined, we are able to offer innovative and effective approaches to the problems that you face.


Most organizations have teams and committees that focus on a myriad of areas.  Different personal agendas and interests often drive the content and direction of these meetings. Do you ever ask yourself…

“Which of these issues really matter?”

What really matters is putting you attention on the areas that will bring the most significant impact. But how do you do that? 218consulting is ready to help you focus on the areas that make a difference.

Through innovative tools and techniques, we can help you and your organization break though the issues and barriers that are holding you back.

All consulting is done in a completely confidential manner – we never release the names of our clients. Your concerns remain just that – yours!

218Consulting offers a variety of services to equip both individual leaders as well as the organizations that they lead. . Contact us today to see how we can help you.
