Welcome! Thanks for visiting.

“Change” can be a challenging concept to grasp, especially while we are in the midst of change in our personal or professional lives.

Change is happening constantly and it can be hard to keep up. When change comes along, it requires that we too change. And this can be hard when we disagree, when we are overwhelmed, or when we are feeling like we don’t have the bandwidth for more change in our lives. It leads us to ask the question, 

“How can we rise to the challenge of what’s being asked of us?”  

The answer? Shift our thoughts and behaviours to align with new vision of who we want and need to be! 

I’m not talking about ‘rah-rah’ platitudes that are ineffective and keep us stuck. I’m talking about real knowledge, skills and tools grounded in science.

Workplace change requires us to be real with ourselves and with others. That’s why I make it a point to share funny and inspiring real-world stories that will help you open your mind and your heart. 

Let’s harness the magic of change, together.

-Gregg

Everyone has the ability to shift people’s mindset during change.

My work helps people influence, lead, and navigate change strategically and decisively. During these times, leaders and teams have told me they use this work in their professional capacity and in their personal lives as well. There is an overlap more than ever.

I use a lens of organizational psychology, behavioral science, change management, and talent development so you can create the “right” practices for you and your team.

Everything I discuss I’ve used with colleagues, co-workers, and clients. I share the ones that work – and the ones that bomb.

This personal knowledge and skill development, I believe over-rides all the plans, budgets, and frameworks. It's our day to day interaction with others that will make or break our careers and the success of our organizations as we shape the future of work.

How I work:

I prefer to work closely with you to tailor the engagement to your audience and environment. (No, I won’t eat up all your time. I’m quite low maintenance.) If you’re looking for someone to parachute in, without consultation with you, I’m not that person!

In my career, I’ve found the best speaking engagements with the most takeaways come when we work together to determine what would be the best approach that will work with your audience. One size does not fit all.

Energy and engagement:

Past clients and audience members say that I bring high energy, relatability, interaction, and actionable strategies and tips to all my engagements. (Oh, and a dose of fun!) You can see these comments on my the Speaking page and some below!

Reach out! Let’s create a great event for your team, together.

The Top 10 Change Hacks

Over the last 30 years of working with diverse groups of people in many different environments, I’ve discovered that there is one thing we have in common in order to thrive: the power to break through limitations and create positive change in our world.

As Rumi, the 13th-century Sufi poet and mystic put it, "Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right doing there is a field. I'll meet you there.” This involves suspending judgment about what you feel is right or wrong about the change and developing a strategy to bring skeptical team members on board.

I hope you enjoy the conversational style of this book, gain some new insights and refresh your memory of material you may already know.

Ready...Set...Change AGAIN!

While change is a big topic, with many models, theories, processes and steps, I felt a need to have a quick and handy reference book that comes from the over 25 years of experience I have in working with people from diverse backgrounds.

Regardless of the type of audience I’ve spoken to, they needed to know how to plan for change, to improve how they handle all the changes thrown at them, how to help the people around them adapt to change – while at the same time, continuing to do all the regular work in our lives!

I hope you find it useful!
