The Origins of OmniConsultants
Every good superhero epic has an origin story.
I had been working for decades in bureaucratic organizations, and had many opportunities to observe upper management decisions. Because I’m curious and passionate about my work, I was constantly reading books, taking trainings and going out on my own time to increase my skills. As I moved up the career ladder and became an executive, I came to believe that the issue was not just bad management, it was a complete lack of structure. Managers weren’t ignoring line staff, they just had no capacity or systems to recognize and elevate their people. That struck me as fundamentally broken.
Then came my impression of consultants themselves. (Sadly, many of the interesting projects got assigned to outside teams, and not internal staff.) What did the consultants leave us? A stack of Gantt charts and reports. Once the consultants left, my staff and I were left to do the actual work. I saw many reports that were shelved as soon as the consultancy contract ended, never to see the light again. Broken.
And now I get to address both issues, as a Change Management Superhero!
I’ve started my own company to help improve organizations that are dedicated to serving the public good. Superhero capes for everyone.
