Founders and Directors
Sticky Change was formed in 2004 by its founder members and Directors: Mary, Fiona and Pauline. Pauline is now enjoying a life of leisure whilst Mary and Fiona continue encouraging people to do it differently.
We chose the analogy of change as a journey across the seas deliberately, because of the inherent unpredictable nature of change. Planning for change can be a contradiction in itself, since change tends to be fluid and... the unexpected happens. Once you begin to change, a series of reactions are set off, positive and negative, just as, when you begin a sea journey, it is not always possible to chart a safe and smooth passage.
Research suggests that at least 70% of all change programmes fail... we work with our clients to ensure their change initiatives avoid being part of this costly statistic.
