More Leadership. From More People.

Consulting

We wrote the books – and we know how to accelerate results by applying what’s in those pages in a practical, flexible way.

You need a partner whose sole mission is to advance the craft of mastering change.

We know what leading change feels like; both the exhilaration of daring to build something that doesn’t yet exist and the discomfort of discovering where to begin.

In a world where change is not episodic but constant, it’s not about just getting one change done. It’s about giving organizations the tools to quickly and effectively adapt to change – delivering results and driving impact now and into the future.

While no two challenges are the same, here are just a few situations we frequently tackle in partnership with our clients.

Strategy Execution

Bridging the gap between strategic planning and activation starts with a compelling vision of what’s possible and continues by mobilizing people throughout the organization to break down barriers, solve problems, and inspire innovation. Kotter’s approach achieves that and more, enabling leadership at all levels to unlock the capability to sustain and scale the results of strategy activation.

Digital Transformation

Digital transformation is both a technology and people transformation. By focusing early on the behavior and process changes that will enable a successful implementation, we partner with our clients to increase engagement, transparency, and excitement for the new technology, leveraging heightened change readiness to deliver the desired business impact.

CULTURE CHANGE

Organizational culture is a powerful force in driving action. The often-repeated phrase “culture easts strategy for breakfast” reflects the reality that even the most compelling vision and strategy cannot succeed without a culture that supports it. Kotter partners with clients to drive intentional culture change that starts with new actions, generates better results, and eventually produces an evolved culture.

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

To truly drive long-lasting impact, we need more leaders at more levels. Even the most successful organizations struggle to build this bench of change-capable leaders. Kotter’s approach to Leadership Development leverages intensive, tailored leadership development courses and action-based learning opportunities that drive fast results. Our solution provides the breadth and depth necessary to advance change capabilities up, down, and across organizations in a sustainable and scalable way.

OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY

For many organizations, continued operational improvement is increasingly difficult as many of the optimization opportunities are already realized. Traditional improvement methods yield, at best, temporary and incremental change. Some even set progress in reverse by sacrificing innovation for efficiency. Kotter’s approach holds an external lens to the organization, orienting around outcomes to engage the diverse workforce to uncover new ideas and the capacity to lead, innovate, and drive value for the customer and the business as a whole.

M&A INTEGRATION

In too many mergers and acquisitions, the emphasis on quantifying the deal value overshadows how the value will actually be realized. Kotter’s approach moves the “how” of M&A integration to the top of the priority list – right next to the “what.” We focus first on culture and people to ensure that employees of both organizations see the promise of what’s possible together and are empowered to take ownership of the change to turn that promise into value and reality.
