CHANGE & Transformation

Where Transformation Finds its Home & Heart

Why this Community

Because Settling for Mediocre Change Is Off the Table

Change and transformation are riddled with underwhelming practices, negative stereotypes, old-school thinking and sobering outcomes. But I'm not here to contribute to the cycle but to break it.

Shifting More Than Just Processes—We're Shifting Mindsets
Today's world demands more than mere adjustments; it requires a seismic shift in how we think and engage and capabilities that lift individuals and organisations to their highest potential.

No Fluff, Just Impact
It's no secret that many change programs complicate rather than simplify, deepen silos rather than unite, and drain resources rather than replenish them.

Built Just for the Changemakers—That Means You
I understand you're not simply 'filling a role.' You're carving out a legacy, shaping the landscape of tomorrow. And you deserve more than to hop between projects, feeling overlooked and undervalued.

Ready for Mastery? This Is Your Launchpad
You're here because you seek mastery, yearn for elevated leadership, and aspire to make a lasting impact. That's precisely why this community is cut out just for you—the visionary, the leader, the agent of change, the specialist.

What Sets This Community Apart?

It's Global, Intimate, and Designed Just for You.

A Truly Global Network

"People of Transformation" stands out in its approach when instigating change. I don't just chatter about change; I'm wholly committed to it. This community brings together change sponsors, leaders, senior practitioners, and consultants from around the globe in an intimate setting where each voice resonates.

Intimacy Over Numbers

The essence of this community lies in fostering meaningful connections between its members. It's about cultivating a hive mind, where the collective wisdom and intelligence of the group are the stars of the show. The focus here is on quality rather than quantity.

Driven by Co-Creation

Forget the outdated model of a single voice dictating what's valuable. Here, you have the opportunity and the voice to request and propose the kind of content that truly serves your journey, all within the community's ethos and objectives.

Diversity Fuels Us

In a world rich with different viewpoints and experiences, this community values diversity not as a buzzword but as a fundamental tenet. Here, varied perspectives enrich discussions, deepen understanding, and contribute to more well-rounded approaches.

It's Ground-Up and It's All About You

You're the centrepiece—the leader, the transformer, the game-changer. This isn't a place for rehashed strategies; it's a playground for co-creating fresh paradigms tailored to your unique aspirations and requirements.

Maggy Thor

Head of Business Design | Digital Transformation and Data - Macquarie Group

Jess has been instrumental in supporting me to build out the Business Architecture practice within my organisation, enabling improved business outcomes and strategy execution. Jess' extensive thought leadership in business architecture and transformation, her ability to cut through 'the noise' and focus on what really matters, coupled with her investment in seeing us succeed has been invaluable.
Jess has and continues to provide me with well rounded coaching to further enhance my leadership abilities.

My Why

Because I've Walked in Your Shoes, and I Don't Want You to Trip Over the Same Stones

The Struggle of the Road Less Travelled
Going against the grain can be an isolating journey marred by burnout, anxiety, and overwhelming pressure. I know this firsthand—because I've been there. From hospitalisation due to burnout to struggling with work-life integration, I've faced the pitfalls of pushing boundaries while losing sight of self-care.

The Silent Drain
It's a never-ending loop: as you sink deeper into the roller coaster of burnout, you lose touch with other important aspects of life—family, leisure, and your own well-being. It's like a rollercoaster that you can't get off, and slowly, you sink into a quicksand of exhaustion and missed opportunities.

The Injustice of Hard Work
Working hard doesn't always yield the rewards you imagine. You become a cog in the wheel—seen as a doer but not a leader. All while watching others who bring about mediocre changes climb the corporate ladder to become your bosses.

My Pledge to You
I've lived through it all. It motivated me to vow that one day, I'd create a space to empower leaders to avoid these pitfalls and to thrive on what actually works.

Your Path, Made Smoother
I want you to make waves without drowning in them. You shouldn't have to compromise your well-being, rely on market whims, or stay stuck in a professional rut. That's why this community exists. It's a fusion of my life's lessons aimed at facilitating your journey, making it more impactful and less perilous.

Eradicate corporate mediocrity through effective, human-centric change and transformation.

End the dreary monotony where everything is 'vanilla' and inspire leaders to bring their authentic, diverse selves to the forefront.

Enable those shaping change behind the scenes to elevate their mastery, influence, and growth—so they can bring about purposeful, lasting impact.

Meet Jess

Your Navigator on the Journey to Transformation Mastery

Hi, I am Jess 👋

With a quarter-century of experience in the global change and transformation space, I've been the strategic force behind the success—and sometimes, the lessons learned through failures—of companies from 15 countries, including heavy-hitters like Google, Boeing, Apple, Emirates, Macquarie, ABN Amro and more.

What makes me tick? A relentless drive to do better. Change is evolving at speed; mediocrity and half-measures can no longer be the norm. I'm committed to elevating the field of change and transformation from a risky endeavour to an act of service—elegant, impactful, and nothing short of sacred.

Why This Matters to You
You're the real star here: the change leaders striving to make a difference. My mission centres on elevating your skills to masterful levels. I'm here to give you the tools to exert more effective influence, co-create lasting impact, and supercharge your value and career trajectory.

A Little More About Me
When I'm not strategising transformative initiatives or mentoring, you'll find me in the kitchen whipping up culinary delights, lost in a blockbuster film, or soaking up the great outdoors. Formerly a professional squash player, I now find my centre through pilates, yoga, and stretching classes (my knees insisted!).

What is People of Transformation About?

In the 'People of Transformation' community, my mission is to elevate your impact as a change leader. To achieve this, we stand firm on three foundational pillars:

Mastery: Excel Beyond Expectation
You know the saying, "Become so good they can't ignore you?" I live by it. Here, you'll find the tools, resources, and insights to master your practice and craft. Say goodbye to costly mistakes, endless guesswork, and sluggish momentum.

Influence: Command Your Space
A title or contract doesn't define your capacity to make a difference. In this community, you'll learn the nuanced art of influence, ensuring your voice is heard and your impact felt, irrespective of your professional standing.

Growth: Amplify Your Value and
Career Velocity
What's the point of being exceptional if your career remains stagnant? I am all about aligning your hard work with tangible growth—whether it's climbing the corporate ladder, starting or growing your open business, playing to your unique strengths, or confidently articulating your unparalleled value.

Think of these three pillars as the legs of a stool: you need all three to maintain balance, stability, and the height from which to leverage your maximum impact.

Core Community Principles?

Our Guiding Tenets for Impactful Transformation

Having been part of multiple educational and professional communities, I've distilled what works and what doesn't into foundational principles. These guiding tenets ensure that you extract the utmost value and meaningful impact from your time here as a member.

Authentic Connection
This community thrives on the genuine, human connections among its members and speakers. We aim to nurture collective intelligence through meaningful interactions beyond the superficial.

Action Over Consumption
This community is not about content consumption and binge-watching the teachings. This is about implementing what you learn and bringing back challenges, wins and reflections to deepen your learnings and make it stick.

Depth and No-Nonsense
Skip the jargon, the theories, and the monotonous presentations. We're all about delving deep, showcasing thought processes, and gaining quicker traction in our respective fields.

Supportive Environment
You're not just another member here; you're part of a supportive network. Feel secure in sharing your insights, asking for guidance, and extending your own expertise. In this community, we've got your back.

The Power of Conversations
There's an immeasurable wealth of wisdom to be discovered in our discussions. These conversations educate and shift perspectives, offering you a window into how others navigate change and transformation.

Respect and Open-Mindedness
In a space of diverse thought, respect for each other's viewpoints is non-negotiable. Come ready to challenge your own ideas and be open to embracing new perspectives.

Doug Paterson

Solution Design Manager in Supply Chain at DHL

Dr. Jess Tayel offers a unique coaching and mentoring program for people who lead, work on, or are looking to step up within the transformation or change space.

I am a strong technical manager and an expert in my field with global & national awards under my belt, but like many people delivering on demanding change or transformation projects, I needed guidance on how best to articulate my strengths and experience in a multitude of ways that makes recruiters, hiring managers and business decision-makers take notice.

In my case, and half way through the coaching program, I have accepted a role in one of my shortlisted top 3 companies, which I probably would not have obtained had I not put the right level of self-effort into Jess’s program.

Your day job doesn’t teach you the necessary skills. Especially so if you are rusty from having worked in one workplace or in one industry for a significant period of time. Jess’s program closed this knowledge gap for me. If you work in or deal with change, transformation, or projects, I would highly recommend Jess.

Michelle Teunis

Global Change & Transformation Leader

Jess is an exceptional coach, whose knowledge goes well beyond surface level. If you are wanting to get to that next level of understanding of what good truely looks like when it comes to transformation and change - and also take your knowledge to that next level, in a way that you can directly apply - then working with Jess is a must. Jess has a brilliant mind, challenges perspectives for the better and I can’t recommend her enough.

Michael Aizicowitz

Project Executive | Value & Benefits Manager

I took the program to help me step up to the next level in my career - I felt that I had gotten to a ""glass ceiling"" with my technical knowledge and needed to work on other skills to take the next step. The program focused on my mindset with a strong expert understanding of business transformation and it’s areas to bring this more to life for me (unlike other generic career coaches who wouldn’t understand what my job is in detail). This helped me become a better leader, gave me additional tools to work with people, and focus on understanding the political landscape. This focus had immediate impact, in that I focused on how the communication I was about to make would be heard by the recipient and either adjust the communication to achieve the desired outcome, or in some cases pause the communication if it would not be received as intended.

Jess challenged me to rethink some of my views - but you can't make an omelet without breaking a few eggs!

Highly recommended!

Vaughn Van Bosch

ICT Program and Transformation Lead

It’s hard to find an expert who is highly empathetic, not afraid to tell you what you may not want hear, and make you see what you can’t see, to open up higher levels of awareness… who is also a great listener, easy to open up to and a highly trusted individual who genuinely cares.

I feel more confident having Jess as my coach & mentor as a guide into my next chapter as a senior executive leader

David Cairns

Transfromation Lead | Program Management | Change Enablement

A key difference in the way that Jess has structured the program is that Jess had experience as a business transformation expert which meant that the sessions could be more tailored and specific for my needs. Through the sessions, We workshopped my unique selling points and then I learned how to better articulate my experience to improve how I position my skills and experience for new roles that are best suited to my background.

Also a key benefit from the program for me was the key principles on how to align my CV and Linked In profile, and how to build awareness and visibility of my profile.
Thank you Jess!
