Change

One thing is for sure…CHANGE

As we adapt, re-invent and restructure for a changing world, an organizational transition is inevitable. Change is a constant in this economic climate whether a result of a downturn, merger, divestitures or internal transformation, or a booming market. Taking your people through change can be the “make or break” of these important evolutions.

Leaders have an important role in leading these changes with their teams, peers and across the organization.  Change management is no longer a skill left to a small group of dedicated professionals. Leaders are now tasked to manage and navigate change initiatives and they must have the skills to adapt and sustain the impacts of change.

“Sarah is highly credible, and beyond that, she does a great job engaging with her audience, from front line employees to C-suite leaders; she’s knowledgable, insightful and engaging from start to finish!”

Morag Ritchie, Director of Organizational Effectiveness
The Calgary Airport Authority

“No single change management initiative in our organization had the same impact as the Change Capability Workshops. The change capability workshops shifted mindset and built capability amongst leaders, project managers and initiative leads. Attendees gained not only an understanding of change management but the capability to introduce change within their teams and organizations in a way that ensured it was adopted.

The workshop was customized to discuss efforts specific to attendees and the breakout sessions ensured that the learnings would transition into day-to-day efforts. 

Sarah was an outstanding facilitator, sharing her wealth of knowledge in a clear, fun and energetic way, creating vibrant and interactive sessions. As a co-facilator, it was always a pleasure watching her bring the room to life as she shared her passion for change management.”

“Working with Sarah to build change capacity with in the team was amazing. Her ability to read the room and understand what each person needed was remarkable. I would highly recommend her expertise to help any team excel in developing and growing their skills to be better prepared for success with any project that has a component of change.”
