Are you match-fit for continuous change?
Change isn’t just a process, it’s a form of intelligence
"Rich generated the most positive feedback of any third party we’ve hired. He has a unique ability to connect with people, and the learnings have become a living, breathing thing inside our business."
"Rich changed how we approach our customers. The workshops were fantastic – the right mix of fun, story-led change experiences, and a driven agenda. As a direct result, the very next day we won a major contract with a prospect we had been chasing for some time. "
"Rich was instrumental in steering us through an unprecedented period of change as we restructured pretty much everything about our business model!"
"The whole concept of Change Intelligence really resonated with our leadership team. And Rich was outstanding, blending his own experience with relevant research, and delivered with humour and empathy. He is a true thought leader."
High Performance Change Specialist
Rich has been leading change with some of the world’s most innovative organisations for over 25 years, in roles that have included CEO of a multi-national, head of a 1b euro supply chain, and founder of the High Performance Change Programme. Having worked as a change manager, a programme manager, and a change sponsor, he has direct experience of the challenges organisations face when they only prepare people for change on a project-by-project basis. That led him to discover that change isn’t just a process, it’s a form of intelligence. And having seen the effects of how that re-positioning of change helps organisations become match-fit for continuous change, Rich is on a mission. And that mission is to help as many people as he can enjoy rather than endure the ever-increasing levels of change that lie ahead for everyone.

The high performance change model
The High Performance Change Model explains what Change Intelligence (CQ) is and how it works. It’s founded on a simple principle: those who embrace change are progressing, and those who don’t are regressing. The model identifies 6 levels of Change Intelligence, and users can judge for themselves a) their current level, and b) the level they need to attain. Each level is logically linked to the levels above and below it, and whilst multiple levels can be experienced concurrently, it is likely that there will be one emotional state that will dominate.
The CQ scale is for illustrative purposes only, designed to indicate that Change Intelligence is an exponential journey, not linear. For example, the performance levels of those who learn to control their fears or embrace freedom are leagues ahead of those who don’t.
|progressing||Freedom||Change is wanted because it gives the freedom to act||+64|
|Belonging||Change is wanted because its purpose unites people||+16|
|Value||Change is wanted, and is seen as a chance to succeed||+4|
|regressing||Doubt||Change is wanted, but is seen as a chance to fail||-4|
|Anxiety||Change is unwanted, and passively resisted||-16|
|Fear||Change is unwanted, and actively resisted||-64|
