Transformation… Managed with Inspiration!
Great companies are the product of great cultures. Real culture change happens from the inside-out – when you adapt the way you do business through and with people.
From the time TMI developed its ground breaking cultural change programme, Putting People First®, over 20 years ago, we have been at the forefront of effective organisational change.
TMI help you to take a holistic approach to any change initiative, factoring in structures, processes and capabilities. We also focus on the critical human side of transformation – taking care of emotions, understanding attitudes and modifying behaviours.

The Challenges of Change
There’s no question that transformation can be disruptive and cause more work for everyone – at least in the short-term.
Whilst change can be a challenging journey, with many obstacles to overcome along the way, it also brings inspiration and excitement, fulfilment and reward.
By understanding what to expect and the common pitfalls to avoid, you’ll be better prepared for what lies ahead!
These common sense, but key, lessons might provide some food for thought.
Help your people be ‘change ready’
- Accept that almost everyone resists change to some degree.
- Listen to employees concerns and fears.
- Be open and clear in your communication about the reasons for change.
- Ensure your leadership team is fully aligned about Why and How.
- Be sure that Managers are willing to roll their sleeves up and role model the change.
By taking these points into consideration, you’ll help to reduce uncertainty, foster inclusion and minimise many of the typical frustrations associated with a change journey.

We know every organisation is unique, therefore our approach to Culture Change initiatives is also unique for every client we partner with. There is no 'one size fits all' solution to organisational transformation.
