About the Abdale Consulting Logo

about_our_logoBased on a contemporary Buddhist symbol our logo represents the convergence of altruism and pragmatism and the unstoppable wave of positive energy that occurs when both these principles meet in equal measure.

This concept – the equal balance of altruism and pragmatism – is at the core of all our services.  Too much focus on the the altruistic can lead to decisions that ignore financial realities or other necessary components of a healthy organization.  Too much focus on the practical can lead to decisions that diminish the soul of an organization’s mission and ultimately alienate donors, volunteers and staff, and institutionalize systems that no longer consider a client’s best interests the primary focus of everyone’s effort.  Either path can lead to an organization’s dysfunction and demise.
