Learn the 7 habits of highly successful program leaders.

Operate at your optimum

By joining Turbocharge your Transformation you are going to:

  • Turbocharge any strategic initiative, such as your growth strategy, re-organization, cultural change, digital transformation, or business program implementation
  • Understand the possibilities you can achieve in an implementation role by taking a multidisciplinary approach
  • Access the tools and frameworks you need to manage business projects and change professionally

  • Influence your stakeholders with credibility, so people feel part of the change rather than having change “done to them”
  • Be comfortable to take on new projects where you aren’t the subject matter expert
  • Start each project or program of work confidently
  • Connect with other professionals working on transformation projects and programs

  • Work smarter, not harder – move from an exhausting PUSH effect, to a powerful, motivating PULL effect
  • Build your credibility so you become known for being a capable, influential, get-things-done transformation professional

You don’t have time to take a week off to learn theoretical 101 change tools. You don’t want an expensive PM course full of stage-gate bureaucracy that won’t work in your organization.

Lead your Transformation Program like a PRO.

What Our Clients Say

Future Builders Group | Wendy Anderson

Wendy Anderson

SVP, Professional Services ANZ, SalesForce

Lisa I wanted to thank you for the outstanding coaching/mentoring support you provided, and your change management team provided, during our recent project. Anyone looking to make transformational change in their business should look no further!

Future Builders Group | Gary Adler

Gary Adler

Chief Digital Officer, Minter Ellison Lawyers

Upon recommendation, Lisa came in at short notice as our Interim Head of PMO. Within just a few short days, Lisa very impressively had reviewed and fully understood the current status and challenges, built key networks and was ready to hit the ground running. Lisa’s deep experience in PMO structures and program management shone through immediately, ensuring that in the relatively short time Lisa was with us, the PMO ran smoothly and was left in a solid, strong shape to continue to serve as a critical project hub to our firm.

Future Builders Group | Paul Manks

Paul Manks

General Manager, CSR

Lisa has supported several of our businesses at CSR to take on a number of change management projects over several years – the critical contribution from Lisa has been supporting us to actually execute our plans and deliver an outcome that delivers measurable benefits to our business, including sales performance and improved cultural outcomes. I would highly recommend Lisa if you are keen to move from idea to delivery – her style is very collaborative and respectful which I believe is a key to her success and the value she brings to every project she takes on.

Future Builders Group | Brenda Cleaver

Brenda Cleaver

Former COO, TAFE NSI, Australia

Lisa worked on the organisational business model and co-designed the implementation plan with the executive team at the Northern Sydney Institute to have the new business model/structure endorsed. Her approach to implementation and management of risk was key to ensuring the success of the program. Highly recommended.

Future Builders Group | Deborah Mason

Deborah Mason

SVP, PageUp

We engaged Lisa to help work with us on stress testing some ideas around our organizational design/structure. Her ability to provide thought-provoking insights and challenge our thinking was extremely valuable and highly appreciated. I would be very happy to work with Lisa again on future projects.

Future Builders Group | Stella Petrou Concha

Stella Petrou Concha

CEO, REO Group, Australia

I’ve known Lisa for over 10 years. During this time she has been a wise sage and a clever strategist that has on many occasions been an exceptional sounding board for me as an entrepreneur and CEO. Highly recommend.

Future Builders Group | Hannah Berson

About the Founder of the FutureBuilders Academy, Lisa Carlin

(And why is she credible to help you?)

Future Builders Group | Lisa Carlin - Founder of OD HiveHi, I’m Lisa Carlin. As a scaleup mentor, I work with ambitious digital leaders to turbo-charge their business, cultural and digital transformation.

Those working with me have an independent sounding board and expert advice so they have absolute confidence they will achieve their goal.

The average failure rate for transformation is around 70% according to McKinsey research. In contrast, I have designed and delivered around 50 transformation programs, with just a 4% failure rate. Both failed projects were abruptly terminated due to a CEO / responsible executive being replaced.

When stakes are high, each decision counts. You won’t get a second chance.

My early career was with Accenture in South Africa and McKinsey in the USA. I’ve since worked with global multinationals, Australian corporates, government and NFP’s through to startups and VC funded businesses. I’m Co-Founder and Director of FutureBuilders Group which is a network of Organizational Development specialists.

I’ve been running a vibrant mastermind community since 2020. Over my career, I have built many stakeholder communities inside organizations to drive transformation with powerful momentum. I also volunteer as the Chair of an Education NFP, and I’m focused on building a different kind of community – volunteers fundraising for disadvantaged students in shanty towns of Africa. Education is a major enabler of change.

I have now distilled and documented the techniques and tools that I am confident provide exceptional momentum and precision to a transformation. I look forward to welcoming you to the FutureBuilders Academy.

Lisa Carlin

No more worrying about not being heard. No more guessing which is the right approach. No more wasting time trying to satisfy every single stakeholder. No more pushing against your culture. No more inertia. No more frustration.

There is nothing worse than regret.

You are finding it hard to fight against disinterest, politicking, inertia and resistance

Your operating environment is COMPLEX

You have so many stakeholders, roadblocks, disruptions, time wasters

You want to be in that “Unicorn Zone” where everything you’re doing is working like magic.

You want to achieve more, so you’re working harder than ever. And the harder you work, the more worn out you are.

BUT you can’t get to the Unicorn Zone by PUSHING HARDER.

You MUST create a PULL effect.

Learn how to work within your culture instead of against it.

I know how hard change is. I’ve delivered in the trenches for over 25 years.

I’ve made made mistakes: not having the confidence to speak up to the CEO when I could see the executive sponsor was not up to the job; not taking time to get to know a key stakeholder; not believing in myself enough. And feeling drained by resistance and negativity.

Then I developed the FutureBuilders Transformation FrameworkTM. It moves the approach from a highly resistant, exhausting “PUSH” effort, to a powerful “PULL” effect that delivers success, ROI and innovation.

Learn how to achieve transformation with precision and confidence.

Will my membership fee increase?2023-05-04T16:55:55+10:00

If you stay a member, you will not have an increase in price.

How does this differ from other project management and change management training and other proprietary methodologies?2023-05-04T16:55:50+10:00

Turbocharge Your Transformation is different in 2 significant ways.

Firstly, it has a delivery mode that provides the flexibility of synchronous and asynchronous, live (Zoom-based) and digital online training (app-based).

This is a subscription-based membership training group meets live on Zoom approximately every fortnight (with some scheduled breaks over the year). If you cannot attend the live sessions for any reason, a recording will be uploaded shortly after the session. This means you can access the program synchronously (LIVE with the other members) or asynchronously (in your own personal time as you wish). All materials are available on the app on your desktop and smartphone at a time that suits you.

Secondly, the underpinning ethos of the Turbocharge training is completely different. Transformation training typically follows a methodology from a particular discipline, such as project (or program) management or change management. On the other hand, the Turbocharge training is multi-disciplinary and draws off the disciplines of business, digital, project management, change management, design thinking, consulting, problem solving, agile and others. This blended approach is methodology-agnostic, which means it can be used in combination with other techniques that you find useful, or as a complement to the methodologies adopted within your organization.

How does Turbocharge your Transformation membership differ from the OD Hive mastermind group membership that the FutureBuilders Academy offers?2023-05-04T16:55:46+10:00

Both are memberships within the FutureBuilders Academy, and Lisa Carlin is the Program Leader of both.  They are however completely different in style and focus, and complement each other.

The OD Hive is a small peer mentoring group of 20 professionals learning from a facilitated discussion on trending topics. It is enquiry-based social learning, which means the agenda emerges based on interests of the group, and members learn primarily from each other, as well as from the facilitators.  It is not training, it is not content-intensive, it is a learning community. Members pay an annual subscription fee and your group has fixed participants who you will get to know over the course of the year.

Turbocharge your Transformation is completely different – it is a training academy with a fixed program of expert content.  You will receive playbooks and tools, and learn how to use them. Numbers of participants are not capped at a maximum.  Participants pay by the month, so your cohort is larger, and may vary.
