Change-Expertise

Creative and pragmatic change expertise for chief executives, top-level managers and project leaders
  • Yes, everybody is talking about change, but how exactly do you accomplish it?
  • Are big changes coming?
  • Are your projects in danger of failing?
  • Have your employees become disengaged? Have they mentally checked out?
  • Do you feel non-stop pressure from all sides?
  • It’s all so much. Where to start?

It’s not surprising that people respond to change often with frustration, rather than enthusiasm. However, with the right techniques and tools, you can meet all challenges head-on with energy and creativity. Learn how to wake your Lust for Change and manage changes successfully!

Change affects many aspects of our professional lives: implementing IT tools, enhancing a client-centric focus, optimizing processes, increasing efficiencies, changing organizational structures, and many more. Let us discover your path to success! I will guide you with practical experience and sound expert knowledge. No consultant-ese! That’s a promise. 😉

Change processes rarely happen as planned. Frequently, the team’s initial enthusiasm turns into frustration, and the perpetual nay-sayers feel validated. The root cause is often inadequate attention to people’s emotions. In contrast, in our people-centric collaboration, we will focus on the people as the central participants of change and configure all important aspects accordingly. Even in business settings, emotions influence decision-making, both consciously and unconsciously. Because we’re all human.

Together, we will create a vision of how to channel emotions and resistance into broad support for your change initiative.

Successful change initiatives start by acknowledging people’s needs and emotions. Change is not simply imposed, but people are integrated into the entire process as active participants. As a result, everyone pulls into the same direction. Yes, that’s possible, despite some hurdles at the start or along the way.

Together, we’ll design customized change activities. I will guide you how to discover effective solutions and adjust parameters to even most complex challenges.

I am Ms. Change. The subject „change“ has been present throughout my entire life, going back as far as the 1990s when I lived and worked in New York, Beijing and Shanghai. After 15 years of excelling as a leadership expert and executive for a major international business conglomerate, I started my own business to help clients discover their passion for change. Creating “Lust for Change“ is my contribution to make the world a better place.

To date, I have more than 27 years of professional experience, including 20 years of high-level engagement and leadership responsibilities involving a wide range of change projects.

From my own experience, I know how to initiate successful change. That’s why I work closely with chief executives, top-level managers and project leaders through periods of complex change. My guidance is clear, inspirational, profound and genuine.

Straight talk and frank discussions about the challenges at hand, without any whitewashing. That’s my style.

Clarity and transparency will guide you through even the most complex changes.

Creativity is my “super power.” It’s the key to success for even the most complex questions.

You’ll discover how to apply inspiration and creativity to solve problems, those of today and of tomorrow.  

Extensive training and applying the newest findings in neuroscience are of utmost importance to me. I am continuously integrating the most recent scientific research into my work.

You can depend on change support that is grounded in sound, scientifically proven principles.

Genuine and lasting change starts with every person himself/herself – that’s why I am authentic and principled. No confusing double-speak. In addition, I offer many years of practical professional experiences and insights.

I will not abandon you with nothing but PowerPoint slides and a few buzzwords. Instead, I will support you through every phase of the change process, no matter how complex. Your lasting success is my goal!

I am looking forward to working with you to discover together the Lust for Change.
