Ensure successful adoption and sustainment in all your strategic change initiatives.

It’s insane that over 60% of organizational change initiatives fail, especially when we account for the vast human, capital and lost opportunity costs embedded in those failures. The insanity is further exacerbated when leaders continue to use the same outdated methods. A more innovative approach is required.

Our guidance, training, support and methodologies can ensure that all the strategic change initiatives you lead are successful, even the most complex and challenging.

Develop mastery in Conscious Change Leadership and ensure your change initiative delivers.

We can help you develop Conscious Change Leadership capability. With this core competency, you become able to navigate the complexity of large systems change with deep expertise. You develop greater perspective to see solutions so you can solve key strategic and operational challenges as they arise. You acquire an advanced change process methodology that guides you in how to design and implement all types of change. And you develop the ability to lead “co-creatively,” instilling commitment across diverse stakeholder groups.

Be guided by a proven change process operating system.

We teach you how to use The Change Leader’s Roadmap Methodology (CLRM) to ensure success leading your change initiatives. The CLRM is a strategic navigation system that provides the underlying operating system for designing and implementing any type, scale or content of organizational change. It guides you and your project team in how to lead your initiative successfully from start to finish.

The CLRM is a fully customizable “thinking discipline” that informs your planning and execution. It’s like having an expert change consultant at your side at all times. It immediately raises your change leadership skill, so you can deliver full adoption and sustainment of both business and cultural results from your change initiative.

Get the strategic advice you need to guarantee successful change results.

We can partner to advise you and guide the strategic design and implementation of your initiative.  Our strategy is to work at your side for as long as needed to teach you what we do. This is aided significantly by your development as a Conscious Change Leader and your use of the CLRM. It ensures that you deliver results on your current initiative while building a high level of change leadership capability that will serve the rest of your career.
