About Us

Liberationist is a change leadership consultancy.
We help teams ignite and accelerate a culture of change.

Overcoming resistance to change is anything but easy. Whether your company is going through a significant transformation, adopting a new process or strategy, or accelerating innovation; change always creates opposition.

Resistance to change requires understanding and reframing mindsets, emotions, and behaviors of both team members and those leading change initiatives.

To create enduring transformation, we focus on three areas: Self-awareness, Team Awareness, and Culture of Change.

We create transformational experiences that liberate the ‘change gene’ within everyone.
