Change Management

Most organizations overlook the very important discipline of change management. When the change that they hoped would happen does not occur or doesn’t “stick”, organizations can be perplexed as to why. I use proven change management models to lead organizations through change that creates a new reality and achieves desired outcomes. Relying on resources such as the Kotter change model, William Bridges transitions, and the Energy Leadership Index assessment, change no longer needs to be painful for organizations to go through. In fact, it paves the way to the future.

Leadership Development

Responsible organizations develop leaders throughout all levels of the leadership pipeline. I help organizations structure leader development initiatives so that high potential leaders are assessed, “ready now” leaders are developed, and succession plans can be real. Leader development is paired with coaching to enhance the leader development process.

Innovation

Organizations can struggle with getting “the next idea” to further diversify revenue streams, create new products, or enter new markets. I lead group ideation sessions that inspire new ideas from participants so ideas can later be analyzed, evaluated, and implemented. Additionally, I utilize a 9 box assessment that plots participants on a creativity and risk-taking grid, so that everyone has a meaningful role in the innovation process.

Culture Development

It is said that culture trumps strategy and I can personally testify to it. Few organizations would admit to the truth of that statement, but culture is extremely powerful in terms of determining organizational results. I help organizations to understand the drivers of their culture and the personality of their organization, so that they can leverage their culture into an asset to generate results. For those organizations wanting a cultural shift, I help leaders to identify their cultural ideal and take the necessary steps to make the cultural shift.

Employee Engagement

Much has been written about the power of employee engagement and its connection to positive organizational outcomes. Forward thinking organizations know that to harness the power of the employee base, highly engaged employees are essential. I help organizations to construct the employee engagement survey questions, conduct the survey, interpret the results, and build action plans. The key to success in employee engagement is to show employees that they are heard and that action is taken based on findings from the surveys.

Strategy Development

Strategic choice can be a lost discipline in an age of corporate attention deficit disorder. I help organizations to build and articulate their strategies. Relying on Michael Porter’s quintessential Harvard Business Review article “What is Strategy”, I help clients identify trade-offs and choices essential to a sound strategy. Through challenging questions and inquiry developed from my coaching practice, I help organizations to “acid test” their strategy for reality testing, achievability, consensus, and competitive edge.

Post Merger/Acquisition Integration

I have been on the buy and sell side of many business transactions. Typically where mergers and acquisitions fail is in the integration phase. The visionaries that painted the picture of a combined organization are generally not the same leaders that execute on integration plans that are synergistic and achieve efficiencies. I help organizations to align goals, anticipate problem integration areas, marry up cultural attributes, and work through the change associated with integration.

Meeting Facilitation

I facilitate board and executive retreats and meetings to gain the most productivity from everyone’s time together.  Many leaders want to participate in their meetings vs. directing the meetings themselves. Having someone from outside of the company to assist and be objective can allow full participation from everyone in the meeting.

 

Testimonials

Within the first month of working with Evan, I was able to achieve measurable, meaningful results.

Specifically the awareness created by our conversations and his proven process resulted in taking responsibility for my priorities, my attitude and my emotional state. Just realizing what influences my decisions has helped improve them in the office, on the road and at home with family.

The most stunning evolution as I look back at the process is how several areas of frustration that dominated my thoughts a year ago have totally evaporated.

Far from being “fluffy” managerial one-liners or some “rah, rah” feel good motivation that fades quickly, Evan and I were able to integrate the coaching relationship directly into my business strategy, performance metrics and direct reports’ development plans.

Evan’s methodology is now central to how my team sets, achieves and reflects on goals. The results have been amazing — largest orders ever for the company, entirely new sources of revenue, increased resources allocated to our team, increased engagement by our customers. And it actually feels effortless, because it is fun.

Bob, Global Sales Leader, Minneapolis, MN, USA

Evan has been a great guide to me. At a time when I was at a crossroads professionally, I got connected to him through a common friend of ours and thereafter there was no looking back. Be it in dealing with under-performing subordinates or dealing with difficult customers, he taught me to look at situations from completely new perspectives. As a coach, he showed me the value of questioning techniques and the value of introspection.

His genial demeanour,  patient listening, and ability to make himself stand by me for support is what always gave me the courage to talk to and ask questions to him without any inhibition or discomfort. A discussion with him at any time made me feel rejuvenated and emerge from darkness to a point where I could see the end of the tunnel. What I liked the most about him is that he never undermined my apprehensions, always acknowledged my fear and yet made me see solutions to them through discussions with him.

Interacting with him is always fun, enjoyable, and fruitful.

Nilakshi, Director, Mumbai, India

I honestly thought I was in a pretty good place as a business leader – successful on the surface, all the best ingredients for happiness. Through thoughtful conversations, the right questions and meaningful coaching, Evan has helped me understand the obstacles I’m putting in front of myself – obstacles which are preventing me from living an abundant life. His style is non-judgmental but exact, warm but determined. Every session with Evan has helped me feel more self-aware and more deliberate in my actions in the world – he challenges me to think bigger, broader. Don’t be fooled – as in the traditional sense of “coach,” Evan doesn’t do the work for you, but instead helps you walk to the beginning of the staircase, take the first step and then is there with you as you climb. The experience has been a freeing if you will, an awakening – this from a woman who thought she was pretty darn awake already. My highest recommendation goes to Evan. Talk to him.
