The EMT Approach to Navigating Change
Assess We evaluate your goals, understand the scope and impact of your change, what's working in your current change management process and identify the resources you need to move forward.
Implement We set your change up for success by creating a simple change vision to help your employees understand what's changing and why, then we'll develop an inspiring and effective communication strategy that creates buy-in and lastly, we'll align on success measures and a plan to track your progress.
Engage We'll involve and develop your people leaders early to help them understand the change their leading, providing practical support and tools to make it as easy as possible for them to effectively lead their teams through the change.
kick start an organizational change
Set your change up for success from the beginning. We’ll create a clear vision, inspiring and informative communication and agreement on measuring progress to achieve your desired future state.
reset a change already underway
Support at any phase of your change implementation, especially if it’s not going as you hoped. We’ll evaluate the current state and understand what’s working and what’s getting in the way, and then take action to get your change back on track.
develop your people leaders
Live or virtually facilitated training to help your leaders understand their role in leading through a current or future change, including creating two-way communication with team members to uncover and address concerns, create clarity on new actions, overcome resistance and celebrate success.
Elizabeth’s approach to leading teams and organizations through change has finally achieved what the numerous articles, books and workshops on change management have not – results! . . . Having structured, yet open and collaborative conversations about the benefits and challenges of our change is a powerful differentiator of Elizabeth’s approach which helped us get buy-in sooner than we had with previous changes. In fact, while we use the change leadership practices on our own, Elizabeth continues to be a trusted coach and advisor when the speed and amount of change becomes overwhelming. She helps me and my team remember where we are strong and how to use our talent and skill to meet any transformation challenge."

Following the acquisition of our company by a much larger entity, "change management" became the amorphous buzzword of the moment, eliciting aggressive head-nods and "yes, very important" endorsements. But until Elizabeth arrived with a clear process that produced a plan for our evolution, not much had happened . . . Elizabeth helped our leaders think about the critical aspects of their messaging and communication and helped all of us organize and chunk the work into manageable action steps: a communication plan; coaching and development sessions for leaders to actually lead the change and a simple way to get feedback from our employees along the way . . . Heavily versed in the neuroscience and human behavioral aspects of change adoption, she translated the science into an easily understood, intuitive approach for me and my leadership team. Our evolution was very successful, thanks to Elizabeth's manageable, hands-on approach."
