Why I want to change CHANGE...

It's long overdue that organizations become change-enabled. I want to help as many as possible build strong in-house capabilities to move up the change management maturity model; from at the lowest level employing change management to ad hoc projects all the way incorporating change management tools as "the way we do business."

What you should know about ME

I’ve seen it all. As a former senior consultant for one of the Big Firms (PwC), I've led the Change Management strategy & execution activities to get your company/organization across  the finish line, only to then move on out of your organization/company as soon as go-live is complete or to a new project within your company. And yes, any consulting firm’s dream is to move from project to project within the same client.

And they want to staff as many consultants as possible for as many hours as possible. I don't work this way.


I’ve seen this time and time again as change consultants are utilized repeatedly; the organization doesn’t think about the dependency that is created by NOT developing in-house Change Management capability.

I feel it's a tragedy, really.​

I'm here to help organizations move from dabbling with change management to become a change-enabled organization. Let's start with a workshop in your organization!

Let's Turn Ability Into Agility

The Path from Change Management to Change-Enabled

Although change happens one person and one project at a time, developing change capability means far more than applying a change management methodology on multiple projects. It requires embedding the discipline into the fabric of your entire organization, enabling every person and every project to deliver the benefits your organization needs. Organizations that become change-enabled consider change management a core competency as important as say, marketing, customer service or innovation – it’s integrated into the way they do business.

In this presentation, you’ll learn the 7-Step S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Model for moving your organization from Change Management to Change-Enabled and leave with immediate actions that you can take to begin the path from change management to change-enabled.

Change is tricky to implement within the same culture. Implementing a change management methodology can downright crazy making across many cultures in this global world in which we live. They way to success is to understand the way people react to change based on their cultural mindset.

In this presentation, you’ll learn how you can apply Richard D. Lewis’ Cultural Classes Model to successfully implement your change management methodology across the globe. Understanding the cultural spectrum to which different countries belong will guide you to customize your change management interventions for greater impact and efficacy.

Learn how to customize key change management activities to different cultures for the best success: case for change, securing engagement & buy-in, mobilizing a change network, managing resistance, keeping stakeholders motivated and sustaining the change.
