Arbinger Leadership Institute for Nonprofits:

Organizational change starts with individuals. In fact, an organization will only change when the people who make up the organization change. The Arbinger Institute facilitates individual mindset change in people at all levels of an organization and provided the implementation and follow-up support needed to coordinate and sustain these shifts across a team or entire enterprise.
