Over the years, my belief in the transformative power of change has never altered, whether my customers have worked in sales, operations, product development, supply chain, or human resources. In the last ten years we've all felt the pace of change accelerate considerably.
Today you must solve more problems in a shorter amount of time, each one more complex than the last. You are pressured to get results with the expectation that you'll know how to innovate on demand in order to do so.
With such massive leaps in advanced technology within the next decade, organizational change and workplace disruption will certainly add to business, job and career challenges. But they will also usher in one of the most exciting times in the history of business, presenting you with unique opportunities to lead yourself and others through transformative change.
This is where I can help, either in the role of Change Strategist or Change Practitioner. As a Change Strategist I add real value to your existing strategic planning teams or create a foundation for a new team by engaging two types of indispensable approaches--the Connector and the Stimulator. Learn why this is important during strategic planning sessions.
If you partner with me as a Change Practitioner, I’ll work alongside your new or existing implementation teams to combine the vital expertise of both a Connector and Stimulator to catalyze real results. Deep experience as a change agent and project manager allow me to provide your team with hybrid expertise and a 360-degree view of how to design implementation plans that make an impact. Learn how RFS brings value to your organization.
The Past Feeds the Future
I started my professional life in Silicon Valley in the 1970’s where I worked in manufacturing as a fab operator, becoming a trainer, and eventually heading up training departments for start-up and established semiconductor companies.
I played a part in the emerging (at the time) computer chip industry where I worked alongside brilliant, innovative, and emotionally intelligence people—executives, management, designers, engineers, maintenance, facility and production personnel—but I also experienced the soft underbelly of toxic, politically destructive behavior and the pain associated with damaged organizational cultures. I would be tested and challenged (setbacks can serve as a path forward!) and still use these experiences in my practice (no such thing as a wasted experience!).
Over the years my passion for helping career professionals navigate and adopt business and workplace change has led me to the place I find myself today: bridging a technological future as we fully face the age of A.I. It’s a future that raises the bar on responsible risktaking for business leaders and teams figuring out a new ground game for innovating at one end of the spectrum and getting work done at the other end. It’s a transformation that includes designing and implementing a hybrid workplace of people and smart machines.
