A little about who I am:
I enjoy working on … transformational change projects that really get under the cultural skin of an organization to maximize the potential of the people who work there for the betterment of the services delivered.
I feel a sense of achievement when … when I get buy in from someone who has been resisting a change or even fighting against it, but realises the need for the change.
I would describe my work ethic as … industrious challenging and not afraid to be different.
I am always challenged when … I get asked by an employee if they can opt out of the change or what are the options to not get involved?
I want to do more … spreading the word for change management and organizational development.
People who know me would describe me as … passionate about change and making change management more accessible.
My greatest success is … that people know and respect me for my views and passion for change management.
In 5 years I want to be … writing more books, sharing my knowledge and nurturing new generations to embrace change management.
