The world has changed.
Your organization is trying to adapt and transform.
Your people are stuck.
We Help Leaders and Organizations
Embrace Change, Transform, Reinvent, Grow.
We design and deliver Change Workshop Experiences that help people and organizations get unstuck and move forward.
- Feel better about uncertainty
- To be more open to new ways of working and thinking
- Regulate their own anxiety and emotions
- Owning it & having personal responsibility
- Taking action to move forward
Our approach is to design Change Workshops that focus on the Human Experience and how we experience the world as whole people – through our intellect, subconscious, emotions and body.
- In order to move forward, we need to align our whole person with the change.
- Because we bellieve that people don’t change because they’re told to do so.
- People change because they make a CHOICE mostly based on emotion and feelings, not logic and reason.

Harmonize Post Merger Organization
Disengagement, mistrust and lack
of focus often result post merger.
Typical post-merger integration efforts focus on headcount
reductions and synergy savings at the cost of potential revenue
growth. This focus on the numbers, along with numerous,
disparate, top-down edicts, leaves employees feeling a loss of
control, confused about future, and, sometimes, even
While the outcome of synergies are often realized quickly, the
resultant demotivation, disengagement, and distrust often linger
and fester, impeding the new organization from realizing its
potential for growth. This is because the causes of these feelings
are usually ignored – the loss of the many intangible assets an
employee has accumulated over the years, like promises, favors
owed, reputation, and other goodwill, and uncertainty about their
We believe that in order to boost engagement post
merger, we need to address what people feel they
have lost in the merger first and foremost. If the
underlying sense of loss is not addressed, colleagues
will be distant, disengaged and slow down the process.
asking powerful questions during
the workshop such as:
- What have you lost in this merger?
- What are the intangibles that you care about? Friendships?
- Camaraderie? Loyalty? Reputation? Promises?
- What choices would you like to have?
then, we reframe the losses as opportunities
for reinvention and renewal:
- What were you lacking before the merger?
- What do you think you can gain with this merger?
- What future would you like to create for yourself and others?
- We then move forward towards Reinvention, turning what seems like a negative into an opportunity for growth in the new situation.
Overcome Obstacles to Change
While many change efforts start with a
vision of where they want to be and a
plan to get there, oftentime, existing
barriers to change get overlooked and
the implementation fails.
Those barriers consist of both organizational structures keeping employees stuck in their current operating mode, like performance rewards, and internal mindsets that prevent them from moving forward, like stress or information overload, which hog people’s mental capacity for new behaviors.
We believe that in order for change to stick, we ﬁrst need to identify and remove the organizational barriers that may be impeding progress, like reporting structures and performance rewards. We’ll map these out and develop a plan to address them
Once we’ve identiﬁed organizational barriers, we’ll begin examining limiting beliefs and mindsets and experiment with adopting new ones.
Redirecting Uncertainty Into Opportunity
Radical transformations require
creative thinking and a mindset of
experimentation, which is often
suppressed by fear.
Radical transformation requires innovation and creativity, and creative thinking requires both a sense of security and optimism for the future. However, when we face uncertainty, we often fall prey to fear and default to the past way of thinking because itgives is comfort and certainty. This closed mindset is characterized by:
- Internal focus / myopia
- Habitual behaviors
- Shock, discomfort, denial – unproductive reactions
- Fixed state mentality
- Overwhelmed by complexity
We believe that people possess a tremendous capacity for creativity and change, under the right circumstances. We use story telling as a method of identifying the right conditions for individual change,including emotional, intellectual, and psychological needs, and then use those stories to build resilience and optimism.
We also believe that creativity is easy to achieve with intuitive techniques like modeling, thought experiments, and leading by curiosity and we conduct some simple exercises that alterperspective and expand people’s repertoire of behaviors.
FOR ORGANIZATIONS FACING:
Embracing a Change & Growth Mindset
People are stuck in the past, resisting
change and impeding the organization
from moving forward
At the root of the resistance to change lies the notion that we
have lost control of job & career. People need to feel like they
have control & certainty.
Colleagues resist change in subtle ways, hindering efforts to
grow. They may say the right things but their behaviors return to
their old routines. Or they may find excuses for why the change
“We tried that but it didn’t work.”
“We don’t have enough resources to do
what you’re asking me to do now.”
Lack of engagement or interest in new initiatives, being
proactive or delaying decisions impedes progress frustrating
other colleagues and management teams.
We believe that people don’t change when they’re
told to. They change through self-discovery and
choice. The impetus to embrace change must come
from within, often sparked by dialogue and an
interest in listening.
IN ORDER FOR COLLEAGUES TO BE
OPEN TO CHANGE, THEY MUST:
- Let go of the past mindset and ways of working
- Accept that while they don’t have control over the change – they do have control over the actions they take – and the mindset they have
- Reduce overthinking and overanalysis
- Re-Imagine a New Future that pulls them forward
- Take action
Not only does this lack of engagement
impede progress, it often spreads like a
virus throughout the organization.
-Dr. Michelle Murray,
It was wonderful to work with Bob. Not only was he a lively, engaging and a wonderful speaker facilitator in how he managed the messages around change, but his style of engagement prior to and in preparation of the engagement was unparalleled.
Bob did such a great job connecting with the organization as part of his preparation, that in the end, he was truly speaking to us about the things we needed, making the experience very personal.
Bob also did a great job with follow-up to ensure learning transfer.
Bob was so easy to work with, very well organized and highly skilled. His slides were great and his stories meaningful.
Staff were very well engaged and we received a lot of great feedback from our employees about the positive impact Bob made. It was an honor to have Bob be a part of our organizational change journey.
