The transformation support team ensures the success of partnering institutions through comprehensive institutional engagement in transformation strategies that lead to institutional resiliency.

  • Provides comprehensive pro-trusive (proactive + intrusive) institutional engagement.
  • Uses the ACT Framework, our emotional intelligence approach, to operate with authenticity, compassion, and transparency, while expecting the same from all stakeholders.
  • Executes continuous improvement through the AEIOU Framework: Articulate the problem. Equip the resolution owner. Improve the process. Observe the solution. Universalize the solve.
