About Zu Dietzenbach

 Zu is a energetic, passionate and knowledgeable speaker that will open your mind to what it really takes to lead successful change. She loves to help people go through smooth transitions and watch them  thrive. 

Zu worked for a fortune 500 company for almost 20 years. For 5 years she was fully dedicated to coaching leaders on how to lead change and engage with employees, as well as implementing several multi-million dollar global projects that required change with people, processes and tools.  

She gathered all the knowledge she has gained over the past 20 years and created an intuitive approach to leading change that has been helping leaders and employees to experience an engaging, fulfilling and more humane change process.

Her Approach to Change

Zu is a strong believer that human connection is one of the most important factors in guiding people through change. 

Her approach is based on the scientific fact that after the basic needs of shelter and food, the most important need for humankind is the sense of belonging and connection. Because social support is proven to be one of the most effective ways individuals cope with stressful situations, her approach provides practical ways leaders can meet that need. Without caring enough about people's needs it is really challenging to change anyone.

On her “Change your VIEW- a humane approach to change”, she provides leadership with a framework to better support their teams during transition and facilitate the change process. Her simple and intuitive method unlocks the secrets of an easier, pleasant and enjoyable change. It has 4 simple steps that help leaders to be visible, build rapport with employees and achieve the so desired sustainable change.  

Her Style


Zu has addressed many audiences and assisted many teams and leaders to realize their people dependent return on investment (ROI). She is engaging, relevant and full of energy. You will feel her passion as soon as you hear her talking. She not only knows what it takes to achieve a successful change, but also how to make it fun, enjoyable and smooth.

Change Your VIEW

A humane approach to change

Change your VIEW is an answer to the lack of engagement, low adoption and resistance to change that many of the  initiatives experience.

In this approach leaders understand how powerful their influence is on people's decision to change . They also learn how well-articulated vision, involvement, time, dedication and deeper concern for people can unlock the secrets of a change that will stick and result in realization of the expected benefits..

This approach makes the change process more friendly, cordial and engaging. Being considerate and respectful of others is in the heart of this process and this is what human nature craves the most. That's why it makes it very hard for anyone to resist.
