Change Management Consultant
"Passion and intellectual curiosity are my guide"
Devin Monajem is an explorer. He is an adventurer and humanist. He is interested in simple answers to complex questions. He is innovative and inventive. He is a storyteller and a design-lover. He is interested in change and change architecture. He is a change professional.
The product of the Waldorf School System, Devin has a creative personality and has always made a point of finding his own way in life. Whether he is traveling the globe or protecting the environment (sometimes both at the same time), Devin’s passion and curiosity guide him in new and novel directions.
Working towards a combined honors degree in Political Science and Spanish, Devin became enamored with the culinary arts. Following the completion of that degree in 2008, he worked as a professional cook for two-and-a-half years. In each restaurant, Devin quickly and consistently achieved a leadership role where he trained new staff and managed entire kitchens. During those years, Devin realized he had incredible insight into the complexity of teamwork and a natural talent for motivating others to do their best work.
In 2010, Devin started the Organizational Change Management program at The New School. He learned about the nuances of management, group facilitation, team-building techniques, and the elements of business. He was free to pursue everything and anything that he was passionate about. He worked on the next global anti-poverty movement as a Junior Strategist Fellow at an organization that builds 21st century movements. He collaborated with a group of designers in an attempt to fuse together his own program with the Transdisciplinary Design program at Parsons The New School for Design. He graduated with an MS in Organizational Change Management in May 2012.
Moving forward, Devin will continue to work in the field of change management as a consultant and will continue to use his passion and curiosity as guiding forces in his professional growth.
