I am a passionate and capable enabler of sustainable and positive organizational change and process improvement. With over a decade of experience in change management and process improvement in the private and public sectors, I am an expert at navigating complex systems to affect meaningful organizational outcomes.
Having undertaken long- and short-term projects at the U.S. Department of Defense, the International Monetary Fund, the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Regional Government of France, and Boston Scientific, I am experienced at working in large and complex systems to smoothly navigate bureaucracy and organizational matrices.
I bring to bear proven and effective techniques that have been honed over many years to help organizations function at their peak operating capacity, making use of both dialogic and diagnostic change management methodologies to help organizations identify their desired future state, and create and execute strategies to achieve that state. One of the key tools I use in working with organizations is liberating structures, which creates opportunities for productive dialogue and action to take place at all levels of an organization, thus tapping into latent organizational capacity.
Possessing a U.S. Top Secret/SCI clearance with a full-scope polygraph (available for verification in Scattered Castles), I can work within the U.S. Intelligence Community.
