Leading Transformational Change
Change is a constant in society and organizations. It would serve leaders well to integrate change as a necessary strategy within their strategy.
Whether it's new leadership or a shift in your business model or a new policy from the top, a leader must be adequately prepared to lead her organization and community through the turbulence of change while maintaining her key team members, resources, and clients.

DEE DEE HARRISON, DIRECTOR, FAMILY AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT, BAKERSFIELD CITY SCHOOL DISTRICT
An Example of Our Work
An county government organization was selected to pilot a new state program that would shift they way they enrolled foster parents. Very few systems were set in place in the beginning and multiple changes were made long after the program had rolled out. This particular county organization had already experienced low moral due to prior leadership, causing a lot of distrust and dysfunction. And on top of that, they had to learn to work together to implement this new state initiative.
Our BEK Impact coach worked with the executive team for approximately 8 months helping leaders rebuild trust in the organization, while learning to work cohesively
Upon our recommendation, the director made some leadership changes, moving some to other departments where they could flourish. Once she had the right leaders in place, the executive team followed the Playbook we customized for them and was able to role out the pilot program as a unified team, make timely changes to the program, and maintain key employees on their team.
