Mindy Millward

Mindy works with leaders and organizations that grapple with the challenge of navigating change in complex, demanding environments. As a veteran consultant in enterprise level change, she has worked for more than 20 years with a range of leaders, including Fortune 500 CEOs and heads of large business units, HR and corporate center leaders, and leaders and boards of smaller high-growth organizations. Her work with leaders helps them and their organization navigate significant transitions in strategy, organization design, and performance. She has focused on building her clients’ legacies of success by ensuring they are aware of and optimizing their own impact as effective leaders of change.

Some of Mindy’s recent work includes:

  • Designing and facilitating an enterprise-wide organization design process to ensure viability of a global organization through significant economic downturn, with end results being an integrated, market-focused, highly matrixed operating model
  • Working with a new CEO through his first two years to successfully transition into his role and build effective relationships with his Board, his executive team, and the extended leadership group
  • Developing appropriate top-level governance structures that sped up management decision-making in pursuit of executing a new strategy and putting new senior roles in place that are the foundation to the CEO’s succession planning
  • Partnering with an HR leader to design and implement a top talent identification and assessment process that includes “vertical” and “horizontal” talent pool development and succession planning
  • Coaching and advising a cadre of leaders at various stages of career and effectiveness to significantly transform their own leadership at three levels: personal impact, effectiveness with their peers and in their teams, and as broad organizational levers for change
