Testimonials for Strategic Change


My highly technical global function was plagued with service and supply challenges, lack of innovation, and other customer perception issues.  WLH served as a strategic partner to undertake a business transformation that resulted in creating a Center of Excellence (COE), creating global service standards, optimizing critical core processes and altering our ways of working.  WLH took on the challenge with the big picture in mind while effectively guiding our teams through change.

When I had to align my senior team on a new strategy, define an end-to end business development and account management processes, and most importantly shape my organization’s culture – I knew Wendy and her team was and will remain a trusted partner!

Change requires everyone—with their individual personalities and abilities—at the grand table and fully engaged. Wendy’s modern-day guide, Change and Thrive, not only reinforces the type of leadership that welcomes inclusion but also, properly recognizes it as a guarantee of better solutions and results. The Coaching chapter, “Guide All Be All,” in particular, is a standout for inclusive leadership!

Through Wendy’s guidance and help over the last couple of years, we have delivered several structured [account management] training programs for our account teams, prospective account managers, and our field sales force. Her team’s willingness to customize their learning solutions helped ensure participants could acquire the skills and immediately apply learnings to their roles.

Robert McBride
Senior Director of Market Access and Account Training


We partnered with Wendy and her team to help us complete the curriculum for our 2-year blended Account Director Development Residency Program. They helped us to successfully implement this program and developed a capstone project for program attendees to cement the overall learnings from this two year experience.  The capstone project not only challenged the participants as it tied in the two years of content and learning from the program but also allowed the participants to demonstrate their learning and the value of the program to our senior leadership.  We are partnering with Wendy and her team on our next cohort of the Account Director Development and Residency Program.
