We have worked with a wide range of organizations. Our clients are looking for outside support to build skills, cope with change, or evaluate strategy.

An abbreviated list of clients includes:


Martin Seligman, Fox Leadership Professor of Psychology and best-selling author, refers to Doug Hensch as one of his “most talented young colleagues.”

“I have known Doug for over 20 years and he’s bar none one of the finest people I’ve ever met and worked with. He is a supremely well-rounded professional who excels at presenting, training, managing and delivering results. In his latest venture with Happier.com, he developed an idea into a viable business with more than 50,000 users in less than a year. We worked with him on communications strategy and execution for Happier.com and he was a dream to partner with. He is engaged, strategic, and a leader of unquestioned integrity. I have witnessed him in a variety of settings with coworkers, clients and others and he impresses bar none. Any organization worth their salt would be lucky to have him in a management or leadership role.” – Jim Hock, 463 Communications

“As a Wellness Program Manager at Paychex, I hired Doug in multiple capacities. We used his organization’s website, and Doug’s expertise as a consultant, to develop a program to increase employee happiness and well-being, based on evidence-based principles of positive psychology. In addition to providing a unique web-based resource around which we built this campaign, Doug’s combined knowledge of positive psychology as well as his sensitivity to our organizational need were a perfect match. In short, the program was successful, largely thanks to Doug’s involvement and his knack for organizational communications, implementation processes, and program evaluation. Finally, one thing I appreciated in Doug was his readiness to identify emerging needs in our organization (whether it was a different workflow on the website or more frequent individual communication) and adjust accordingly. Additionally, I hired Doug to personally visit our company and conduct a presentation for employees at a couple of our sites. Doug is a lively, engaging presenter. One of his audiences, 100+ Organizational Development specialists, generally is – quite honestly – a tough crowd to impress. Yet I still hear from attendees how much they enjoyed and valued the presentation and how they continue to integrate into their daily lives and into their work much of what they learned from Doug. I recommend Doug whole-heartedly.” – Bob Merberg, Paychex

“I had the pleasure of working with Doug to create a new Organizational Effectiveness team at Nextel. Doug brought a wealth of organizational development experience to the team, and throughout the time we worked together, he continuously challenged all of us to join him in his ongoing pursuit of new approaches, new learnings. He loved working with both new and existing teams, to find new ways to improve team dynamics and help both the individuals and the teams identify ways to use their strengths to improve their individual and group effectiveness. Doug’s focus on the positive aspects of change were vital to the successful deployment of a variety of interventions during the difficult merger period with Sprint. To this day, I find myself approaching new projects using the positive psychology “filter” I learned from Doug.” – Kimberly Beach, Infinitive

“Doug Hensch is a positive and thoughtful leader. I have known Doug for a long time and he consistently displays the qualities that every leader and teammate should possess. He is a person that everyone should get to know because he adds value to every situation he encounters.” – Joe Valerio, Wells Fargo
