PASSION LED US HERE
We share a love for creating resilient people, resilient teams and resilient businesses, through attuning Culture, Teams and Business in a unique way that makes company culture transformation last.
We don’t work with everybody … but if our values fit with yours, then it’s time to undertake one of the most rewarding journeys you can take as a leader. And leave a legacy to be proud of, whilst solving the biggest issues you face in business today.
"A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way."
John C Maxwell
We serve game changers
Changing Change International (CCI) is a global consultancy that specialises in partnering with successful business leaders to produce breakthroughs in performance, and transformation in critical areas of their business, by creating attunement in thinking and behaviours that are fundamental to success.
Bottom line? We want to change the world through changing the culture of organisations, unleashing the best in every person, and the best in every workplace.
We founded Changing Change International (CCI) in 2016 with the vision of changing the way change happens in business – creating culture transformation and change that is sustainable, replicable and ecological, so that the culture, team and business is change-ready and change-resilient. Everyone gets to do what they love, and love what they do, and enjoy better results.
Our solutions are flexible. Which means that whether you need culture and change transformation, or training to increase your bench strength, or want to understand the theory of change, or mentoring and coaching, our team is here to support your best talent – and help you get the most out of your existing programs too.
There’s never been a better time for a different approach to company culture and change. Change that is purely project or systems-led, isn’t holistic or sustainable. Change that only focuses on giving people leadership skills, without addressing the fundamental culture, or the business environment, will fail. The speed of change is increasing; adaption to change is too slow, and companies are reactive. You need more than a bandaid.
It’s faster results for fast times. By moving beyond engagement, education, and empowerment, our method challenges the established notion of change being achieved purely through empowerment and alignment. By focusing on attunement and ownership through the lens of culture, teams and business, you effect sustainable change. And you can start reaping the rewards today.
“Find people who share your values, and you’ll conquer the world together.” John Ratzenberger
What you see is what you get
CEO and Founder: Culture, business performance and behavioural specialist
Passionate about creating workplaces that bring out the best in the people, and the best in each business, the force behind Changing Change International (CCI), and creator of Culture Incorporated™, is business executive Julie Alexander.
In her own words: I’m a former corporate executive who has lived in the real world, and frankly didn’t enjoy all of it. I have worked in companies that sucked the very life from me – and for those that made me feel better the moment I walked in the door, where I was happy to give my all. Throughout my career, I have developed high performing teams and individuals, consulting and mentoring executives and making change last.
I have over 25 years’ experience working for the British Government and blue chip companies such as Avis, Cendant (owners of brands such as Century 21, Wyndham and the GDS Travelport). I have also worked with clients such as NatWest, Lloyds TSB and RBS in the UK. And with ANZ, CBA and Visa Consulting in Australia, to name a few.
I am passionate about transforming businesses and lives; creating ultimate business cultures, and teams to thrive in those cultures. I dreamed of creating a Summit where we talked nothing but company culture, purpose, putting people before profit … and creating a ripple effect, positively impacting 1m people’s lives. I love it when dreams come true.
Ask me about: walking on fire.

A very fine bunch of people who are equally passionate about what they do
Our team is made up of experts in a broad range of specialisms, who we bring together to support you as, and when, you need it. If you don’t need them, then you don’t get them.
What you do get, is the people you need, when you need them, and you will always have direct contact and support from our founder, Julie – you will not be passed off to a junior, never to see the original people you wanted to work with.
To make sure that we can work with you in this way, we will only work with a select number of clients, and we are just as choosy about who we work with as you are. So, the first thing we will do is work out if our values match yours, and whether we think we can truly make a difference in your organisation, and to your people.
Because we like to work with people who believe what we believe, and who share our values.
We are proud supporters of the Vinnies CEO Sleepout in Australia, the CEO Sleepout ZA in South Africa, Kiva.org, Exodus Foundation, Heart of Glebe and Our Big Kitchen. You can check out how we give back here.
How we think and how we deliver
Three things drive us: Passion, Courage and Humility
Our values are our “riding instructions”, or guiding principles, by which we navigate every decision, every action, every interaction.
We know what opportunities to pursue – and what opportunities not to pursue – and how to go about it without needing lengthy debate.
Values help us determine our standards, expectations, attitudes, beliefs of what is possible and our behaviours. In essence, our values are verbs: and these are not just words … this is who we are.
This is what you get when you work with us.

Say it all, say it now
Open communication, transparency, robust discussions, courageous conversations; we speak the truth and do so with boldness and compassion. We advocate for your success.
Play hard or go home
We play full-out; this isn’t a dress rehearsal, so we seek to do something every day that scares us a little, squeezing juice and joy out of everything – we live life like we mean it.
People mistake us for Russian gymnasts
We are agile, flexible and we always nail the landing. We are consistent, focused, and courageous, can hold our own against the big boys and have a singular desire to reach the goal that is good for you, good for me and good for the greater good. That’s the gold standard.
Our sandpit or yours, it doesn’t matter – passion and playfullness are guaranteed
We take ourselves lightly and our work seriously. We bring our personalities and individual strengths to work and give others permission to be themselves. Authentic, regardless of situation.
We deliver. Period. (And more.)
We do what we say we are going to do, when we say we are going to do it. It’s not about being right, it’s about doing the right thing. And we do it all with a liberal sprinkling of WOW.
It’s our job to set the stage, not perform on it
We lead ourselves so that we can better lead our clients and our teams. It’s about empowering you to shine – without needing to be the ones on the stage. We transfer the knowledge and the expertise, so you take full ownership without needing us to be there all the time. So you can shine.
An attitude of gratitude
For our clients, for our team, for our families, for our supporters, for our detractors; to see the changes made every day is a privilege. If you’re not getting it wrong every now and again, you aren’t doing anything particularly innovative – and we’re not afraid to get it wrong; mistakes are the jewels of learning and we love challenges because they help us focus on new solutions.
Our other favourite colour is green
With degrees from the University of Constant And Never-ending Improvement, we love to learn, to grow and in doing so discover the next best versions of ourselves. Green and growing. Professional human beings, we challenge everyone to take the journey to their best selves with us too.
