We understand that when you’re planning a team event or managing a conference that you want to hit a homerun with inspirational content.

What Makes People Before Things So Different?

Conventional methods of “change management” mostly focus on communications and training to coerce people to accept change. However, leaders complain that when they invest in these activities, they still struggle to get buy-in and achieve strong business outcomes. We help get to the root cause of change resistance with a simple and repeatable model that has already helped thousands of leaders.
