Navigating across an ocean requires a vessel that is sea-worthy. To remain competitive and win in today’s volatile marketplace requires an organization that is “change-worthy.”
Leading organizational transformation is less about implementing a new process or system than it is to design a “change-worthy” organization able to navigate through continuously changing market environments, updating structures, adjusting processes, and helping teams and people to quickly transition to new ways of engaging and contributing.
You need to be continuously evaluating how you drive value and how you operate as an organization. You need a capacity for leading transformation. As in all things, when it comes to organizational transformation, leadership is the single largest determinant of success. It takes leadership to build an unsinkable organization.
Three major barriers to effective organizational transformation are:
- A lack of strategic alignment,
- An unwillingness or inability of senior leadership to embrace and lead change,
- Operational and tactical actions that are uncoordinated and pulling teams and the organization in multiple, competing directions.
Working with Giuliano Associates and following our tested and proven approach, you’ll build an unsinkable organization. Together we will:
- Create Alignment around a high-level vision, strategy, and action plan for transformation at an enterprise, function, or initiative level.

- Coordinate Action using familiar tools that build, replicate and scale careful, strategic thinking and effective communication.

“Two years ago my life changed when Greg became my executive coach, a feeling that I know is shared among the people he works with. Greg’s approach delivers exceptional results. He quickly and intuitively identifies the talents of each person, and then develops a bespoke plan. Our plans balance the short and long term to drive growth and personal development. The work always ties to an outcome. What’s the business objective you need to deliver and what are your personal hopes and dreams? The approach works for a busy executive while keeping you accountable! Lastly, he takes the time to get to know his clients as people, learning about our families and lives. He cares about the whole person, and as a result, builds trust. I highly recommend Greg and appreciate the opportunity to be his client.”
