The "Are you an employee engagement consultant or change management consultant?" question is one I field often.
The short answer? It's a bit of both. That's because one informs the other.
In the way that I deliver for clients, an initial focus on employee engagement reveals the strengths and opportunities of a company's culture, systems, and operations.
These become the ingredients and focus of the recommendations within a change management plan.
Having been a fitness professional for the better part of 2 decades, I've got plenty of fitting analogies.
In the fitness world, there's a saying, "proximal stability before distal mobility."
The stronger the foundation one has in the former, the greater opportunity there is for improved efficiency in the latter.
I have next to no knowledge in new home construction. But, I know enough not to build on a poor foundation.
It's reasonable to believe that the process of building might be tougher, given a shaky starting environment. In the event that construction is completed, the iffy atmosphere might not allow for the house to remain intact.
The same is true of business and change project outcomes. All the hard work you and your team may have done to achieve a result can be short-lived if employee engagement and organizational culture aren't considered from the start.
Despite my lack of skill in construction, I can still put together a fun and results-focused, personal training program. But, my academic and professional experiences support a new type of programming for my clients.
Now I spend my days:
I begin my work as an employee engagement consultant, and transition to change management consultant as companies rely on their newfound core strength to introduce the changes that allow for decreased expenses, improved revenues, and business sustainability.
Here's what to do next: ⤵️
I'm looking forward to supporting you as both your employee engagement consultant and your change management consultant.
