Change is inevitable
Resistance is not
It’s all about your people
Change initiatives don’t typically fail because of poor strategy or bad planning.
They fail – or struggle, are delayed, or run out of budget – because the people and cultural aspects of change are overlooked.
Supporting your people, helping them understand how the change they’re being asked to undertake will impact them individually and as a group, alleviates resistance and encourages active participation.
Simple, yes. Easy? When you know how, yes.
And it’s not just about your change initiatives
Globally, change is happening at an ever-increasing rate. And external change can be just as difficult – if not more difficult – for your people to deal with.
Which makes it that much more important to help them build resilience and teach them the tools of change leadership.
How I help
I offer specialized support for the people and cultural aspects of your change initiative, increasing success and decreasing frustration, failure rates, and timeline or financial overruns.
I’ve been there, done that as a business analyst, project manager, and professional services department director.
And I’ve been there, done that as a consultant and change leadership expert, helping clients understand the people side of change initiatives.
I can show your people how to manage the impact of change on themselves and their teams, helping them develop resilience to change, thereby creating a better experience and better outcomes.

I’m a leadership geek with a side of MacGyver-like resourcefulness – and a recovered (!) corporate executive who grew up in tech and finance as a business analyst and software developer, creating business intelligence systems that people said couldn’t be done. (Go ahead. Ask me about that!)
Years of executive leadership and employee mentoring through multiple change initiatives – some successful, some not – mean I know what it takes to create successful, sustainable change. And after years of research, practice, study, reading, and thinking … well, my perspectives on change leadership are different from most mainstream approaches – and they tend to get better results.
