As an HR consultant, you are exceeding the expectations of the leadership team of the U.S. branch. Along with the change management plan, your memo emphasizing the need for leaders to coach, mentor, and inspire the workforce to participate in the change process was well received by the VP and the leadership team of the U.S. branch.
