ERIKA MOOKERJIE has spent more than 25 years making change leadership accessible and practical for the people involved. She works with C-level and senior executives so they understand their role in change and the specific actions they must take to be successful. She helps mid-level managers recognize their feelings about the change and learn what they must do to get their own teams ready. She also works directly with front-line employees who often just want to know what they have to do differently in their jobs, how to do it and why.
Her latest change adventure is starting her own change consulting business, Change Leadership Advisors. Change Leadership Advisors believes that caring about people is at the heart of leading change. And that means making sure people know why the change is happening, what they need to do differently and how to do it well. Erika sees the positive correlation between preparation and change success. Change Leadership does not guarantee the happiness of those who must make the change. What it can promise is that people are ready – before, during and after the change happens.
Erika has worked at Cox Enterprises, North Highland, Leadership Strategies, Computer Sciences Corporation and Ernst & Young with communications, human healthcare, animal healthcare and energy clients, along with state and federal government agencies. In addition to leading change, her strengths include creating and leading matrixed teams, facilitating effective workshops, and coaching and mentoring.
At Cox Enterprises, Erika launched the Cox Change Community in 2015 for employees who wished to connect and learn more about Change Leadership. The Community grew from 16 people to more than 100 by 2019, comprising members from strategy to marketing, IT to HR, corporate to field operations, across the company’s businesses.
Erika is a graduate of Trinity University (San Antonio, TX) with a degree in International
Economics. She volunteers with Habitat for Humanity and was part of Georgia’s Women in Technology (WIT) for five years. Erika spends much of her time outside of work keeping up with her young twin boys.
