I also aspire to provide a unique value based on my knowledge and experience
to a varied selection of clients. I am grateful for all the kind words and acknowledgements.
"PPHC hired Dr. S. Eric Christensen of Change that Works to assist the Leadership Team at one of our facilities in improving engagement effectiveness. His deep understanding of complex change processes resulted in the implementation of executable strategies in support of our company’s goals."
I have worked with Dr. Eric Christensen for over 25 years as an internal client, a student, a mentee and a colleague as he has served in various corporate roles and as the owner of Change that Works. He has provided me with invaluable counsel on the deep realities of change and how to sustain it in my manufacturing roles as training manager, continuous improvement manager, operations superintendent, plant manager and owner of a consulting/coaching practice.
Dr. Christensen’s deep experience comes from a career spent working with all levels of manufacturing organizations to create sustainable change that delivered value to the bottom line. He has lived the realities of the change process and produced real results, giving him the rare ability to help others do the same. He knows the secret to making sustainable change happen.
Dr. Christensen is an extremely diverse, “out of the box” thoughtful strategist and project leader for complex/sensitive organizational change projects.
Eric demonstrates unique academic and personal skills in his approach and methodology to change management and transformational leadership. Through experience, he encourages you to follow the process which leads to identified end game results. As I look back on each experience, it didn’t seem like work but more of a journey to achieve something that benefited everyone involved (company, mill, leaders, and employees). We were able to convince, convict, and convert everyone of a common vision / goal to a better business environment and personal incentives. Built into this approach was sustainability through investing in strong and effective employee training programs.
Both of my experiences were very successful, and to this day I do not hesitate to pick up the phone and call Eric for advice or to share thoughts on Change Management. He is a true visionary and practitioner on the subject of transformation and change management.
Eric demonstrated an unexpected ability of grasping and dealing with the hard issues regarding talent that helped drive major change initiatives in our organization.
CTW improved our Performance Management and Employee Development processes by obtaining leadership evaluations from our team that were hard-to-hear but that were also critical to our improvement.
