I'm Paula Swift, and I'm the CEO of Paula Swift Consulting, a Strategic Communication firm based in Los Angeles, California.
We have an established client base, ranging from a multi-million dollar tech company to independent artists and a bit of everything in between. To be frank, I love what I do and enjoy leveraging my experiences to provide a wide scope of services to my clients.
I believe that an essential rationale behind the significance of change management in achieving organizational success is its role in enhancing employee engagement and satisfaction. By aiding individuals in maneuvering through an organization's transitions, change management fosters a sense of connection to the implemented changes and facilitates their adaptation. This leads to heightened engagement and a greater capacity to acclimate to the evolving circumstances.
Further, diversity is more than just hiring people with different backgrounds: it's about thinking about how you work together and how you conduct business. It's about valuing people who are different from you, even if they don't look or sound like you. It's about creating an environment where everyone feels included and respected. It's about helping people understand each other so they can work together as a team to achieve their goals.
So, a bit more about me . . .
In addition to my passion for helping organizations create inclusive spaces for their associates, I am also a professor at my undergraduate alma mater, Azusa Pacific University, where I teach courses on Professional Communication. I also earned a Master of Communication Management from the University of Southern California.
