Our systems — be they companies, government agencies, schools, churches or healthcare organizations — become brittle, rigid, bureaucratic, and sometimes even dangerous when there are no rebels or change makers who have the courage to say, “This isn’t the right way.” Look no further than General Motors’ recent debacle. This inspirational post reflects on what might happen in a world without rebels.
Welcome to FoghoundOur promise is to help your organization and people achieve more than you ever thought possible.
I advise leaders on how to make their change efforts successful, coach and mentor marketing, sales and corporate communications teams so that they achieve more than they thought possible, and facilitate important off-site leadership and board meetings. As trusted guide, facilitator and thought provoker, I believe the answers you need can be found from the people within your organization.Read more about working together
ABOUT LOIS KELLY
I've been a change agent and rebel throughout my career, helping some of the most respected companies in the world sell, market, communicate, deal with crises, go public, adopt innovative practices, and occasionally try to move mountains. During this journey, I became a student of change, learning what it takes to get people to embrace new ideas. My role model is the late actress Ruth Gordon. My cause is the Rebels at Work movement. My obsession is creating clarity from complexity.Learn more about Lois Kelly
I teach, research, and write in order to learn. Please enjoy the presentations and eBooks I've created during my learning journey. Some have been viewed by 100,000 people. One was the basis for a book. Others have been thought starters for me, and I hope for you.View Resources

Meet Lois KellyFacilitator. Guide. Thought Provoker. Writer. Rebel.
Lois KellyFounder and Managing Partner
Curiosity and fearlessness have governed my career, beginning at 15-years-old writing feature stories for a Boston newspaper, getting immersed in issues management and crisis communications right out of college, moving into high tech marketing as the dot com boom starting booming, writing an award-winning book about word of mouth marketing in 2007, guiding clients into digital and social marketing innovations, and helping rebel change makers at large companies overcome obstacles to create important new initatives.
I have worked in corporations (AT&T), big marketing agencies, and boutique consulting firms. While I was honored to work in executive roles at some extraordinary companies, I opened my own firm 17 years ago so that I could focus my time on counseling clients.
