Recent research from CEOs indicate their intense and urgent interest and leading and sustaining an ongoing change agent organization.

Futurist, David Hule, says, “We have left the information age and are moving into the “Shift Age”. Everything is in a state of shift. Companies and leaders need to be able to transform their company if they’re going to succeed in the next 10 years.”

This session will share a researched and proven methodology to transform organizations.

Whole System Transformation best starts by having each executive and the team as a whole transform themselves before they initiate full engagement for enterprise-wide systemic and systematic change.

Come and hear how we have taken whole system change and large group work of Kathy Dannemiller, Dick Beckhard and Bob Tannenbam to new levels. The aforementioned, God rest their souls, were key in the start up of Whole System or Comprehensive Organization Development Service.

The company was awarded one of the ten most important companies in the country by the President. The CEO texted and said the recognition would not have happened without our WST intervention. This country has the chance of leading the world in all aspects by the end of the century.

NO! The magic is not because of who Roland Sullivan is. It is because of the foolproof processes that has been re-engineered from founders of the Organization Development profession. And the beauty is… we can teach it to YOU!

We believe that 80% of current OD practices are missing opportunities. We strongly believe and have research to support my belief that the “WHOLE SYSTEM” best be involved in any transformation effort.

We know of no better way to “Teach the Elephant to Dance” that is, empower the enterprise to change in a positive manner.

We will also share using our process with one of the largest European corporations.


Here is the executive team having a dialogue with all. The greatest joy for me was to be emailed a year after I was finished helping them. The internal change agent said that “ALL” agreed that they had just had their greatest summit ever. I was not even present. I did hear that the presence of my spirit was there. My aim is to break the dependence on external help and leave them with the competence to sustain the journey.
