, AE170047 Best for Leadership Consultancy Services – Tasmania & Best for Business Development and Strategy Coaching - Tasmania Shaping Change is a specialist consulting practice in the field of Organisational Development and Human Resources. We invited Rosalind Cardinal to tell us more about the firmand the services it offers. Shaping Change work with leaders and managers who want to make a difference and are having the challenge of truly leveraging the talents and skills of their people, bringing an energetic and proactive approach combined with a wealth of knowledge and experience to help its clients achieve their desired outcomes. Rosalind talks us through the firm’s dynamic and innovative approach to supporting leaders and their staff to achieve more. “At Shaping Change we are in the business of making a difference, by creating better workplaces, great leaders and inspired teams. We coach corporate executives, help organisations manage change, engage and motivate teams to be more effective, and empower leaders to release their fullest potential. “Through our service offering we equip people with the skills, tools, and strategies they need to achieve resilience in the face of change and thrive in new environments. We ensure that teams are not simply coping with change but embracing it constructively. Focus is particularly placed on establishing the most effective culture for success for organisations, and overseeing that the right team members with the right talents and skills are in the right jobs.” Business consultancies have faced a number of challenges over the years, including the economic struggles around the world which have led to clients reducing spending in their market. Despite this, Shaping Change has achieved phenomenal success thanks to its multi-faceted approach which allows it to recommend powerful strategic interventions and implementations for its clients. Rosalind is eager to discuss the importance of such services and how her firm really does make a difference to its clients’ businesses and lives. “Fundamentally, our purpose is ‘releasing true potential’. We make a difference in the world by creating better workplaces, great leaders and inspired teams. “The world is in desperate need of better workplaces. Statistics tell us that the majority of people are not engaged at work - they do their jobs well enough to keep them, but there is a lack of motivation because they feel that their roles are not adding value, and are of no real significance. Our work helps businesses and leaders create meaning and connection to purpose so people can thrive. Thriving people are motivated, happy and inspired. “Leaders are the ones who affect change in our world. When we equip individuals with the resources and tools they need to maximise their potential and become the leaders they were born to be, they go on to have a revolutionising impact on their organisations and within their sectors. We enable people and businesses to do the work they’ve been called to do, and to bring more of it into the world.” Overall, Shaping Change is now in its 6th year of business, and has been a success beyond imagining. In her concluding comments Rosalind considers what the future holds for the firm. “In late 2014, Shaping Change launched a Leaders Mastermind Group, The Shaping Change Inner Circle, for driven leaders around the world who are passionate about making a difference, building successful businesses and leveraging the talents and skills of their people. In 2015 we created a Premium membership level, including face to face networking and events. Our plan for 2017 is to further leverage this and expand the reach of the group, first in Australia and then internationally. We are partnering with ELM Australia to launch a leadership program in Ghana, in 2017 - 18. “Our current strategic plan is focused on growing the business through potential licensing of our products, joint ventures, and new products and services. We are also looking to further our community contributions through our Not for Profit partnerships and alliances and are excited for the opportunities that these partnerships and our plans will bring.” Company: Shaping Change Contact: Rosalind Cardinal Contact Email: [email protected] Address: PO Box 344, Kingston, Tasmania 7051, Australia Phone: 0061 4 1757 2770 Web Address: www.shapingchange.com.au
