Cultivating Change

Approximately 70% of change initiatives fail to achieve their original goals. Why is this? Recent studies reveal multiple reasons, but at the root of these is a common trend: the need for strong change leadership.


Your next change initiative can be a success through intentional, empathic change leadership. In this unique, results-oriented program, you will identify a change you are leading, then we will guide you in developing an action plan to address the change. By the conclusion of the workshop, you’ll have the tools you need to lead your employees through the change and ensure sustainability long after the workshop is over.

  • Delve into the psychology behind change and why we resist change. Use your newfound knowledge to empower your employees to embrace change.
  • Learn how to address the common factors that limit success and weaken corporate confidence when change is afoot.
  • Discuss how to intentionally cultivate change within your organization as a technique to bolster your audience and strengthen your company’s initiatives.
  • Create a plan that incorporates Biltmore best practices and includes tailored solutions for your organization

• Executives: Execute change initiatives in your organization with sustainable results.
• Entrepreneurs: Uncover insights into your team’s needs for positive results through growth stages.
• Professionals: Take back strategies and techniques to improve your organization’s ability to embrace change.

“Without a doubt, one of the most professional and well-organized training sessions I have attended. The messages were clear and all objectives were met. A hospitable group of leaders who have a true passion for their customers.”
