Rick Maurer works with leaders who want to accelerate the implementation of major changes - and with people who need to build commitment to those changes.
Rick's approach to leading change is unique. Knowing how to work with resistance is key to turning skepticism and opposition into support for major new initiatives. If leaders understand resistance they can often avoid it before it occurs - or get things back on track when a change is about to derail. John Loose, former chairman and CEO of corning said, "said "Beyond the Wall of Resistance, captures the primary impediment to successful reengineering implementation - employee resistance to changing from old ways to new ways. It is a practical guide on how to turn a resisting organization into one that actively embraces change."
Rick works closely with clients to develop and adapt change management strategies that will work in their unique culture. His clients have included Deloitte & Touche, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, AOL, IBM, Syngenta, Charles Schwab, Verizon, National Education Association, NASA, Tulane University Hospital, Kaiser Permanente and many government agencies.
