ATLANTA, Sept. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Passages Consulting today announced that it is changing its name to Navalent.  The strategic organizational consulting firm is making the name change to further establish its unique identity in the industry as a premier resource for organizational transformation consulting and executive leadership development to some of the world's leading corporations and brands.

The firm believes its new name better represents the full nature of its services. "We are uniting two powerful words that we feel passionate about, 'navigating' and 'valence.'  The ability to navigate the turbulence of great change is the brand element we are preserving from our past.  We now combine it with 'valence,' the powerful phenomena where chemical bonds unite in the service of transformative change.  Our role will continue to focus on helping connect the necessary 'bonds' of an organization to ensure transformation materializes," said Mindy Millward, one of Navalent's three owners and Managing Partners.

Navalent reflects the firm's continued commitment to stay agile and responsive to leaders striving to achieve transformation.  "Our size allows us to customize our approach and invest deeply in our clients to ensure their ultimate success," Ms. Millward said.

Navalent believes organization and leadership transformation happens in three domains – transformation within (leading self); transformation between (leading with others); and transformation among (leading organizations).  "By focusing in transformational changes in three domains, Navalent creates sustainable change and impacts an organization's financial and operational challenges, including mitigating risk, increasing efficiency and ultimately, strengthening the bottom line," said Eric Hansen, Owner and Managing Partner.

Navalent provides leadership consulting beyond traditional coaching.  "We build comprehensive leadership programs to accelerate capability directly aimed at driving an organization's strategy," said Ron Carucci, Navalent Owner and Managing Partner.  Navalent also provides organizational consulting that prepares organizations to take advantage of what's next in the marketplace; executive team alignment creating a shared understanding of accomplishing strategic imperatives; and methodologies that develop generative cultures that inspire, energize, and promote commitment within an organization.

The company has also introduced a new logo and has updated its website,
