Leadership & Organizational Effectiveness

We help build organizational capacity and expand public policy influence. Using assessment tools such as TotalSDI, we help leaders understand individual and composite strengths and weaknesses, helping to manage conflict and often uncovering opportunities.

Government Affairs

We plan and execute multi-faceted government affairs programs that impact public policy. Whether building trust with regulators and legislators, increasing community engagement, or creating lobbying campaigns, we help clients advance their interests through legislative or regulatory processes.

Crisis Management

We work on the front-lines of reputation management and community engagement. Our efforts have helped public and private sector clients resolve high-stakes conflict and avert millions of dollars in regulation and legislative compliance costs.

Public Affairs

We help clients harness the power of the collective for advocacy and engagement at local and state levels. Whether creating new networks or re-visioning existing ones, we connect our clients with key partners from business, not-for-profits, and government agencies to expand their reach and advance their messages.

Communications Management

We create opportunities for clients to tell their stories to their most important audiences via earned media, op-ed writing, social media, newsletters, speeches, videos, annual reports and more. We draw upon our knowledge, skills and connections to open doors to a broad network of reporters and influencers.

Our Work

The OSG team works with a variety of clients in the public, not-for-profit, manufacturing, real estate and agricultural sectors.  Below are a few examples of how our custom communication strategies have helped our clients achieve their goals:
