We are built to drive change
Transformative change is part art, part science. And, we think we’ve cracked the code. We’ve honed our skills in change management working with multidisciplinary teams of health experts, community partners, practitioners and families to define complex problems and design rigorous data-driven strategies that deliver impact now, and for the future. Creating opportunities for continuous learning is critical to success. Staying nimble to respond to evolving needs is a prerequisite. Our consultative approach means forging deeper relationships and building trust at every level. We know when we work in close partnership to articulate goals and develop the right resources to drive change that achieving better health outcomes for all children is possible.
How we do it
We admit it. Change is hard, scary and rarely follows a straight line. We’ve refined our change management approach over the last two decades and have found it to be the best way to prepare and support individuals, teams and organizations in making systems-level change. The key to our approach is recognizing that change has a people side and a technical side, knowing where to start and then how to bridge the two sides.

What People Say
From the very first meeting, they embraced what we're trying to do in Texas and never missed a beat... It's a pretty well-oiled machine and it's been exciting to work with them.
NICHQ's team brought enthusiasm, structure and information about how to effectively implement change management to the project which has been key to the success of the collaborative. I continue to look forward to guidance and support from NICHQ for similar projects in the future.
Working with NICHQ, I have been able to assist communities all over New York State with their breastfeeding care efforts. The NICHQ staff is experienced, organized and thorough, ensuring each interpersonal interaction is maximally engaging and productive. Because of the way change efforts are organized, I find myself learning new procedural and educational techniques, and even more about my own field! Thanks to NICHQ for including me on this interesting ride.
It was an easy decision to engage NICHQ in our strategic planning process to take our breastfeeding goals from strategy to action to results. We have been inspired by their work. We are very excited about the energy and direction they are providing.
NICHQ fosters a collaborative process, not a dictatorial process. You allow us to build success in our community and not try to push any one strategy or model on us. You guide, collaborate and share, but you don’t steer.
