Sustainability is much more than green or good for the environment. Every business needs to work hard to sustain itself into the future. In today’s fast-paced environment, businesses need to gather, understand, anticipate and respond to information about their business faster than ever to grow and survive. Change Management Communications Center recognizes that top performing business models are keen to manage a triple bottom line. When business leaders are privy to discrete contributions and expenditures to the people, planet, and profit aspects of their business, they enjoy an exponential advantage to look even better, while making good decisions that affect their brand. If you would like to learn more about how we help others manage a triple bottom line, and all of the benefits attached to sustainable management, contact us today.

Change Management Communications Center consultants are adept in the art of culture mapping. We provide our clients with a Climate Check Assessment that includes culture mapping. Our Climate Check provides leaders with information about
- sub-cultures that exist in your organization
- risks that exist in relation to resistance to change
- influencers that can help advance change
- intentional and unintentional barriers to change that are caused by how people interact at work
- how external partner and customer perceptions affect and influence your change strategy
When you are leading change, your success depends on a crystal clear view of risk and solutions that address risk. As outsiders, Change Management Communication Center consultants are able to ask the right questions without making promises, get the straight answers, and interact with the front line–up, down, and across the organization. We access and gather information in ways that company leadership cannot. Contact us today, to learn more about how we can provide culture mapping intelligence to help you lead more effectively.
Change Management Communications Center identifies succession planning, along with exit strategy planning, as the most under-prioritized business practices today. Business leaders benefit from creating a strong, well communicated, and commonly understood succession plan and exit strategy for their business. Change Management Communications Center has partnered with Amy Pietsch, Director of Fox Valley Technical College Venture Center to deliver a best-in-class Succession Visioning and Game-planning Workshop for business owners and management teams. We have received comments such as, “I wish we would have done this ten years ago,” from Jeff Sment, co-owner of Interstate Sealant and Concrete, and “You accomplished in two days what it takes us more than a year to accomplish with clients,” from Carl Knox, Cornerstone Financial Group. If you need to create an exit strategy and succession plan that works–the kind you can have confidence in–contact us today, and we will share our process with you. You will create peace of mind about your future and the future of your company.
