Dr. DAWN-MARIE TURNER, MEd., CMC,
Hello, I am Dr. Dawn-Marie Turner. I am the author of the best-selling book: “Launch Lead Live: the executive’s guide to preventing resistance and succeeding with organizational change.” I am also a certified management consultant (CMC), international researcher, educator, and speaker. My interest in change started over 20 years ago as I helped people adopt a heart healthy lifestyle.
Gradually I applied that knowledge and interest and began working with organizations. My goal is to help organizations become healthier and stronger because of change.
Not in spite of it.
To compliment my masters in education from the University of Manitoba, I also have a doctorate in applied management and decision science from Walden University.
Leaders tell me one of their biggest barriers is resistance to change. Resistance to change is not inevitable. It can be prevented.
There is a better way to approach change. It doesn’t have to be all about managing resistance.
How we can help
To prevent resistance to change, and to help you stop managing resistance, I developed DEAM©. An organizational change framework that helps leaders design, plan, and accomplish healthier more sustainable change.
I created the Living and Leading Change: Change Leaders’ Certificate program and the Executive Change Leader’s Course. These were created to help leaders and managers gain the knowledge and skills they need to lead and manage organizational change.
I have published and presented articles on change management best practice and methodology, business process change management, project management, readiness and resistance to change, and informatics. My work has been published in the International Journal of Quality and Service Sciences and the International Journal of Knowledge, Culture and Change Management.
By focusing on the perspective of the people who will adopt the change, I show leaders how they can prevent resistance to change and use change to increase their competitive advantage.
