Transform Through

Leading Change to Improve Performance, Innovation, & Growth


When organizations transforM through change, they Create new value and new opportunities.

Change can be difficult to navigate, and failing to transform can lead to a number of problems. If you are facing the challenges of a change in your organization you might be asking yourself these questions:

    • What are the potential consequences of failing to change in our organization?
    • Can our team members adapt and embrace change?
    • How can we effectively lead our organization if we have uncertainties or fears?

Disturbing the ‘Status Quo’

Transform Your Culture From ‘What it is’ to ‘What it could be.’

Change is something that can NEVER be avoided. What do leaders need to know to make that change work FOR them?

Through research and personal experience, Dr. Jones created the I AM Model™. This model provides a comprehensive three-step approach to help organizations and their leaders to Transform through Change that improve relationships, lead to success and ultimately increase profits.


The I AM Model™ 3 Step Approach

Designed to help individuals and organizations tap into their inner strengths and take actionable steps towards achieving their goals. This powerful approach can help bridge the gap between the current reality and desired outcomes.

STEP 1. Reclaim Your IDENTITY

Many of today’s leaders are suffering from an identity crisis. The magnitude of this crisis can range from distorted, diluted, and destructive behaviors, and in some cases a deranged form of what they inaccurately define as leadership. When leaders become lost and confused, it doesn’t just impact them – it creates a ripple effect through an organization with a destructive force much more closely resembling a tsunami. CHANGE will require an organization and its leaders to reclaim their IDENTITY to generate NEW VALUE.

STEP 2. Resubscribe to ADAPTABILITY

Change is a natural part of life and workplace adaptability is the ability to respond effectively to different scenarios and challenges within the workplace. Adaptable leaders develop targeted skill sets, processes, and frameworks that allow them to deal with different situations quickly and efficiently as they arise. When leaders don’t adapt, they lose their ability to embrace change, they have a closed mind about what’s possible, and anxiety tends to grow about losing opportunities.

STEP 3. Rejuvenate Your MOTIVATION

Change of any sort is usually somewhat stressful, uncomfortable, and challenging. And more importantly, it is a process that gradually unfolds over time which has an impact on our motivation. We can grow frustrated by other’s resistance or lack of enthusiasm for change and the practices we use may threaten critical drivers of motivations. It’s important to know that motivation comes in different forms, which are also linked with different results. Since all motivation is not desirable, it’s important to rejuvenate your motivation by avoiding those practices that are counterproductive.

What People are Saying About the work of Dr. Jones

Dr. Samuel Jones was exactly the speaker that our public health workers who are members of the MS Public Health Association needed. They came into the virtual conference being so tired from all of their work on the pandemic. His presentation lifted them up and sent them away from the conference feeling renewed and refreshed. His closing session, Necessary Risks: How to Lead and Live Beyond A Crisis was so appropriate for them at this time. The evaluations of his session indicated just how effective he was, even virtually! We can definitely recommend him for any group!
