In 5 w/Fey: The Organizational Change Agent/Trainer>Dr. Melinda C. Hill


by Fey Ugokwe, Esq. @pinkpurseintl


FEY: You’re a well respected, John Maxwell-certified, organizational change, leadership development, and communication skills trainer, particularly in the field of education. What inspired you to dedicate your career toward systemic and professional development? 

TRAINER HILL: I am an agent of change: my doctoral degree specializes in organizational change, and I've dedicated my life and career to helping others become the best version of themselves through change. I am passionate about seeing people, at all stages of their life, be successful. It's a corporate mom or dad, who can take the leadership and communication principles that I teach and apply them to their team at work as well as the team at home. Maybe it's a teenager having a difficult time fitting in or difficulty developing a positive self-image. Perhaps it's a team struggling with their productivity. My intention is to add value to others and help them change for the better.

FEY: You’ve penned a powerful book on preventing and surviving cancer, using mindset, spirituality, and other key tools. What are just a few of the instruments in that arsenal, regarding beating the disease, and what personally led you to writing that work? 

TRAINER HILL: Again, my goal is always to add value to others. I grew from my journey, and I wanted to help others grow as well. I am talking to you because of that battle. Cancer is such a negative word, but for me, cancer turned into I CAN SIR. I've taken cancer and flipped it on its head. I CAN, SIR. I can make a difference. I can be a positive influence. I can help others along this journey. I can shed a positive light on a negative situation. I CAN, and I will. The book contains strategies to turn pain into purpose highlighting: (a) we are spiritual beings having a physical experience; relying on a higher power is essential; (b) don't just go through it, grow through it and find your gifts; then, (3) give your gifts away. Without a shadow of a doubt, I know my purpose on earth and why God left me here: to raise godly warriors, who like an arrow, are shot into culture bearing the image of Christ--and to help parents and families do the same.

FEY: Progressive employers are often seeking ways to ensure that their diversity initiatives are being met, inclusive of honing the leadership skills of, e.g. their women professionals and professionals of colour. How do you address these initiatives in your training for organizations? 

TRAINER HILL: First, I believe, as my mentorJohn Maxwell says, "leadership is influence, nothing more, nothing less." Diversity and inclusion begin at the top. Are leaders modeling the practices, are the practices a part of their corporate culture and is training at the helm of an underlying goal to create transformation? This transformation begins with coaching conversations. Leaders answering how can I increase my capacity to support inclusion, diversity, and equity? Transformational coaching contains strategies individuals can use to grow and diversify. Transformation coaching encourages leaders and staff to pursue new strategies monthly, keeping the issue at the forefront of the corporate culture.

FEY: As a trainer who focuses on systemic and professional examination and growth, how do you maintain your own work/life balance, especially in stress or challenging times? 

TRAINER HILL: One rule I live by is, it takes teamwork to make the dream work. I apply this principle to both my work life and home life because we are better together. We are better and decrease stressful situations when we become aware of the pattern of how those on our teams communicate. We not only know what kind of communication to expect FROM them; we also know how to best prepare FOR, interact WITH, and respond TO them in order to have a successful connection and reduce conflict. 

I'm using the Maxwell DISC Personality Assessment at home and work to accomplish harmony and balance in my work and relationships. This framework of D, I, S, and C is not meant to label us or place us in a box and close the lid, but to help you recognize the patterns that illustrate a person's behavioral preferences--and how, when we lean into our own natural areas of strength, we can bring our best into our work and relationships.


FEY: What would you like prospective clients to know beforehand about your approach to organizational change, leadership development, and communication skills training, and how can they locate you online to learn more about those services, inclusive of your motivational speaking and book?

TRAINER HILL: Never before have we seen such a crisis in leadership, and never before has this crisis spilled over into our homes. If leaders don't have peace in their homes, leaders are distracted at work. When I enter an organization, I want them to know I care about working with their team from a holistic approach: work and family. We are so passionate about this issue. The John Maxwell Team has joined forces with Lifetime's America's Supernanny to address this leadership crisis. We have answered the charge to equip your employees with the tools they need to succeed on both teams--home and work. My leadership training, coaching, and speaking will extend past the corporate walls and transform homes, communities, and the world. Let's get started; we have what the world needs.
