Change Management Consulting

Our consulting helps your organization embrace and incorporate operational, strategic and other corporate changes in a manner that reduces distractions, maintains focus and sets your organization up to achieve its objectives.

All too often companies fail to make necessary pivots because new strategies are not executed upon due to misunderstandings or disagreements, or new process improvement tools are not utilized. Or inertia wins over the efforts required to generate and implement new ideas. Change is hard for people and organizations.

We can help- we’ll successfully guide you through a proven process to plan, evaluate, implement, and validate new strategies and processes, as well as measure results.

We developed the ENHANCE performance™ model as a flexible, systemized approach to integrating teams post-acquisition and facilitating organizational and procedural changes, to adapt corporate cultures and organizations so they endure and consistently drive high performance. The book Get Employee Engagement: Future Proof Company Strategies describes all necessary elements of a successful change process, and provides a model you can follow to establish course corrections for your organization. Read Get Employee Engagement for specific change management practices, tools and strategies that work and guidance on how you can apply them. The ENHANCE methodology is summarized as:

Eliminate biases and barriers to productivity.

 

Notice strengths and weaknesses.

 

Harness employee input, skills and experience to create value.

 

Align individuals based on common ground.

 

Navigating individual interests, change and conflict.

 

Communication.

 

Entrepreneurial execution.
