Leadership and Collaborative Change


Effective leadership is critical to instilling change in any organization. The goal is to enable leaders to achieve full transition potential by:

  • Understanding why change is necessary and identifying the motivation to change
  • Practicing leadership skills to create collaboration across silos and through enterprise politics
  • Aligning with other leaders to drive actions required for change to occur and to sustain
  • Learning how organizations fully realize the benefits and ROI committed to justify the change
  • Developing team coaching skills to sustain change objectives

Critical Meeting Design and Facilitation

Critical Meeting

There are times when it is valuable to have the skills of an independent, objective and skilled facilitator designing your critical meeting and allowing you to “sit at the table” and fully participate in the work.

Transition and Change Partners has extensive experience in creating the meeting you want that will deliver the solutions you need!

Strategic Planning and Execution

Strategy Planning

Transition and Change Partners has a proven record of success in facilitating rich and constructive leadership dialogue to create strategies that achieve shared and aligned goals while holding leaders accountable for executing on their commitments. This work includes:

  • Current State Assessment
  • Strategic Planning Workshop focused on:
    • A process that has its roots in the “voice of the customer”
    • A process that is repeatable for the organization over time
    • A Management System that encourages and sustains progress

Lean Leadership

Financial Growth

The Lean Leadership Initiative provides senior leaders a critical lens through which to view their enterprise continuous improvement efforts.

“Do better” work initiatives often look the same with 10 ‐ 20% one time savings coming from Process and Tools deployed.

Real returns come from effective leadership transitions. This form of sustaining cultural change delivers 80-90% ongoing savings resulting from a focus on “what we value in word and action”.
