Change Management

Times they are a changin’. Here’s what to do about it.

Times they are a changin’. Here’s what to do about it. 2016 has been a weird year. Forget the presidential election for a minute, and reflect on how many changes have occurred at your company since last year.

Ready, set, goal!

“If I set a New Year’s resolution, I always achieve it.” - said no one ever.

Culture starts at the top

Don’t you hate it when everyone and their grandma piles onto a media story and dissects it to death? Yeah, me too, but in this case I really couldn’t help myself.The media is all abuzz about Marissa Mayer’s appointment as the new CEO of Yahoo!, and even more so with the news that she’s also pregnant with her first child....

“Communications Has Always Been a Challenge”

One problem we hear time and time again: "Communications has always been a challenge." Sometimes it’s a bandwidth issue. After all the time spent critically evaluating a change that needs to be made, creating a plan and then going through the process of consensus-building on a particular approach, it can be a mad dash to the finish to communicate the...
