Laura Barnard Impact Engine Instructor

Laura brings to Change Management coaching extensive and highly relevant experience and an exceptional abilities to communicate ideas and suggestions and to answer questions. It is obvious that she has worked successfully with many clients to facilitate and greatly improve their transitions. Her training and coaching modules are extremely well organized and provide many templates and worksheets that are excellent tools at all levels of change management and for all personnel involved. I highly recommend these coaching sessions to anyone who will be a key player in an organization’s improvement and growth.

Bill NewtonProject Manager

Laura’s command of Change Management clearly displays her expertise in the field of project/program management. Laura’s tutorials/webinars for helping PMP’s achieve positive change in your work place should be viewed/listened to by all and more than once!

Marie Ann LeykoProject Manager

I thoroughly enjoyed the class.  I thought the information presented was directly relevant to my role, timely, accurate, and well organized….Much of it can help me understand how to support my customer’s challenges and carry through the strategy to the boots on the ground.  As my contract gets recompeted, your change management methodology can help me by applying a transition plan to our new contract.  I am looking forward to applying your methods and templates to my PMO and the new Transition Plan.

Terrance O’ConnellProgram Manager

Amazing business model—access to the information outside of the class is awesome. The price is reasonable.

Lu C. Hais

Your session was so well done and hit the nail on the head. I have tried for many years to communicate, both with PMs reporting to me as well as to executives wanting to dig in to the details, why a one page dashboard is effective to help us move the ball and not get caught up in the weeds.

Emi Kustalworked in PM for 15 years

Great suggestions, wonderful templates – thank you for sharing. These tools will help me implement the lessons from today. And having the slides we could take notes on was helpful. I took a lot of notes.

Lindsay McQuiston

Excellent and useful insight! Instructor clearly knowledgable and passionate about the topic!

Joe Bishop

Really helped me validate that my team and I are doing the right things. Thank you! Also gave me some great new tools and templates to take back and use. Need to have a 30 min version of this for my team!

A System Based On Experience

Our Change Management system works if you follow it.

How do we know?

This system is based on 20 years of direct, hands-on experienced creating change for a broad range of organizations across industries. 17 of those years creating changes of various size were IN YOUR SHOES as an employee. She then took those battle-tested techniques and packaged them into a change management system to serve a greater market and deliver more value to more people that really need help making their change efforts effective and sustainable.

A Word From Your IMPACT Coach

“I wish I had me when I was you…

I could never find one resource to help me address all of my PMO and Change Management needs from training, to coaching, to staffing, to rescue work, to latest trends and techniques, to a network of my peers dealing with the same challenges, and so much more.

My passion is helping others. I do that through the nonprofit I started called Project Management for Change and various board positions for nonprofits that serve the community.

But, that’s not enough. I also have a calling to help those of you that are in the same position I was in as a PMO and change leader for 17 years for companies of all sizes and across industries. I truly wish I had me when I was you and my mission now is to give you all of the tools and resources that I have found hold the keys to creating effective and sustainable change while increasing your own personal value to the business you support.
