What is Change Management?

Change Management is the “magic” that helps people within an organization move from the current state, through transition, and into the future state.  It puts people first in the disruption of corporate adjustments.  

Change management is not a power play, nor is it heavy-handed.  
It certainly isn’t a parable, simply read, to make people willingly accept the uncertainty of change.

Change Management is a leadership discipline that can be learned. Change Management Communications Center is coaches, clients, consultants, and community learning and applying change management theories and practices

We partner with business leaders and community leaders to achieve positive change results.  Change management marries research-based theory and models with best practices to move people through the cycle of change 

That’s Change Management
