Find your transformation agents within

Sometimes organizational transformation has to be signaled, driven and reinforced from within the very culture it seeks to influence. Consultants can be helpful for framing processes and facilitating examinations. Yet, the consultant can only survey the scene, it is the people inside of the organization who have to solve the problem(s) by living forward the transformation long after the consultant leaves.

So, before jumping to a consultant as part of your effective transformational strategy, look inward for ambassadors and agents. (You might even find someone not only capable of helping you move forward but also eager to make that contribution.) And, if your search from the top to the bottom of your org chart reveals a willingness for change but a lack of understanding for how to make it possible, then consider how you'll get better results if your consultant of choice works from a platform of employee engagement.
