Change Management

Chambers & Associates works with organizations to deal with volatile, unstable, complex and ambiguous changes in their environment by ensuring they have the critical change leadership and change management skills required of the 21st century.

Change Leadership & Management

One of the major reasons change initiatives fail (over 70%, according to the Kotter Institute) is because leaders do not effectively manage the people and cultural aspects of change. While skilled in many other areas, many business leaders are not equipped with the right organizational change management knowledge and skills. Most have never been properly taught – have you?

We work with you to quickly and sustainably accelerate a strategic goal or change, transforming your organization from the inside out. We help you establish new ways of thinking, new ways of collaborating, and new ways of developing and identifying leaders to successfully develop and execute change.

  • The rate of change is not going to slow down any time soon. If anything, competition in most industries will probably speed up even more in the next few decades.
    John P. Kotter, Professor of Leadership, Emeritus, Harvard Business School and New York Times best-selling author
