Michelle is a wonderful thought partner for building organizational capabilities. She is very detail-oriented with a keen ability to get people excited about organizational changes. If you are looking to build a Change capable organization I would recommend Michelle as a valuable resource.
Unique presenting style, engaging examples, and detailed descriptions provided the audience concrete examples on how Change Management functions in day-to-day settings and how to overcome certain challenges. Her warm demeanor and wealth of knowledge connects with any audience. Michelle's training program will put anyone at ease whether you're new to Change Management or a seasoned practitioner.
