Lead change more effectively, and get the results you’re looking for

Progress is impossible without change. - George Bernard Shaw

Partnering with you to lead change that works

We offer tailored change management services based on deep, practical, hands on experience leading change

Whether that change is occurring at the individual, team or organizational level.

After years of having change “done” to us in addition to “doing it to others,” at Change Essentials we have learned that there are better ways to lead change more effectively, and to get the results you’re looking for.


For example, getting 90% of system users up and running within one year on a US-wide expense reporting system implementation for 5,500 employees. Or increasing retention in a highly competitive IT organization by 1% in one year. Or helping a senior client lose 20lbs, get better sleep, reduce stress and manage conflict in a healthier fashion within 6 months.

We have also learned that having the will or desire to change is not necessarily enough. You also need the capacity and capability to make the changes you want happen. At Change Essentials we offer capacity building services that:

  • Strengthen leadership team capability and alignment
  • Build resilience (Cultivating ResilienceTM programs)
  • Build management, employee and organizational capacity (leadership development programs)
  • Augment your teams’ effectiveness and
  • Magnify your people power (individual coaching).

Our results show that these capacity building programs can be highly effective, for example, increasing organizational commitment by 12% and strengthening specific resilience competencies by 60-70%.

Capacity Building

Change is inevitable and many times people and organizations are ill-equipped to deal with it

You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf. - John Kabat-Zin

At Change Essentials we significantly increase the odds of changes sticking in an organization by building organizational capacity to deal with the change.

We build capacity through strengthening the “people power” at all levels in the organization from senior executives down to employees.

Specific Capacity Building Services Include:

Developing Teams
Most work these days is being done by teams and yet these same teams are faced with constant changes: members coming and going; limited resources; changing goals and deadlines; not being co-located; organizational restructuring etc.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I)
Change Essentials is committed to creating work environments where individuals and teams of all backgrounds can engage, succeed and thrive. We help people strengthen their awareness about diversity, equity and inclusion through designing and facilitating powerful awareness and skill building programs.
IT Assessment
IT Assessment is a participative 3-month program designed by Change Essentials to baseline the current organizational state, gain employee insights, and collaboratively prioritize IT roadmap.
Providing Individual (1:1) Coaching Services
Sometimes we have to change because the pain of the status quo has become too much for us to bear. Sometimes we have to change to survive. Sometimes we want to change because we are bored of the status quo and want to build our capacity and grow.
Resilience Programs
Cultivating Resilience® is a highly effective, 4 month virtual, interactive, and research-based development program designed by Change Essentials LLC specifically to strengthen organizational capacity through increased individual resilience.
Running Cohort-Based Leadership Development Programs
Change Essentials has designed, managed and facilitated highly effective tailored leadership development programs for 10-75 participants in both commercial and federal organizations.

Change Management

Best practices show that effective change management increases successful change outcomes fivefold!

The world hates change, yet it is the only thing that has brought progress. - Charles Kettering

You know what changes you want to make. At Change Essentials we partner with you to make those changes a reality.

Specific Change Management Services Include:

Employee Engagement
Strengthening your employees’ engagement is a significant performance enabler. More engaged employees tend to be more productive and willing to go above and beyond. Engaging employees in change is an effective way to increase buy-in and commitment, and ensure the change is done right from their perspective.
Organizational Change
The rate of change facing government and commercial organizations is staggering. Changes can be driven by legislation, new leadership, old structures and processes no longer working, a change in mission/purpose, new systems, an unhealthy culture, or a need to innovate.


Building and implementing an effective strategy is critical to provide a sense of direction, prioritization and organizational alignment

Without a strategy, execution is aimless. Without execution, strategy is useless.. - Morris Chang

Their leaders need to become more adaptive. Change Essentials can help you build the strategic competencies you need to succeed.

Strategic Portfolio, Program, and Project Management
