About Us

In 1950, Tom Lawrence founded one of the first management consulting firms in the nation. For over five decades, the firm has established a reputation for integrity and skill, helping hundreds of smaller firms and not-for-profit organizations improve their management and achieve success. Trade associations and professional societies have been important clients throughout our history. In 1988, Tom Lawrence was the first Management Consultant to be honored by ASAE with its Distinguished Contribution Award. Lawrence-Leiter and Company serves trade associations, professional societies, small and medium-size businesses with a focus on management, organization, strategy and planning.

Located in suburban Kansas City, the firm conducts a nationwide practice. Our approach is pragmatic, low-key, client-centered and free of gimmicks. We assist clients to carefully analyze where they are now, help them determine where they want to go, and develop the strategies and plans to get there.
