Are you working like your hair’s on fire? … without the results to show for it?
Connect works with leaders like you who are responsible for two jobs simultaneously—your day job and your complex change initiative.
You need to influence employees—many of whom don’t report to you—to get on board with a new initiative and work in different ways. They—and you—may feel they didn’t sign up for “re-learning something they already know how to do.”
You may be a leader in Finance, HR, IT, Communications, or Marketing and be facing one, some or all of these challenges:
- You are committed to leading a new initiative yet you struggle to juggle everything you know you need to do, including keeping your words and actions in alignment, especially as employees and other key stakeholders are closely watching you and wary about your calls to action.
- Customers—either internal or external—complain about inconsistent service, slow timing, misunderstandings, or lack of initiative.
- Your team frequently falls behind on its promises and loses credibility with other leaders and colleagues.
Yet, it’s critical you succeed. Your department, your company, your personal credibility, and professional reputation depend on you to get results with the change initiative you’re leading as well do your regular job.
You can get relief as well as results as you lead your new initiative. You want to make sure you’re working quickly and effectively toward:
- Achieving your goals without the drama, delays, and distress so often associated with change.
- Building your credibility as a progressive leader who leads by example and is listening, involving and supporting your team and other employees.
- Gaining clarity around the change to sharpen everyone’s focus and stay on the same path.
The good news: You can make this happen.

Don’t wait until your credibility is on the line.
