The history behind Kamaleidos change solutions

Our story

Kamaleidos is a hybrid term that combines the magnificence of a chameleon with the visual magic produced by a kaleidoscope.

Chameleons are extraordinary animals. Their name means “lions of the ground.” Chameleons’ eyes are independently mobile, but in aiming at their prey, they focus forward in coordination, affording the animal stereoscopic vision.

A kaleidoscope is a very creative tool with an ancient history that configures vision into multiple features and colors; it’s capable of forming mosaics in beautiful tones and geometric shapes.

These two concepts behind our brand highlight the critical element of VISION.

Seeing the same matter through many “filters” while analyzing and understanding a problem through different perspectives helps us deal with obstacles using trained and sharp vision.

In organizations and in projects, once the core issue is identified, our ability to draw a compelling vision for change is fundamental for gaining the support around us and mobilizing everyone’s efforts towards that vision. Under this premise we define the Kamaleidos motto: Envision. Change. Succeed.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS & PARTNERS SAY

  • Professional, personable and resilient are the three words that come to mind when I think of Ernesto. Ernesto was retained to deliver the full integration of the HRIS and Payroll system. there were many candidates up to the task. However, we knew that the more significant challenge would be around change management, training of the staff that were exhibiting change fatigue, and meeting the pressing timelines. Ernesto quickly proved himself: established key relationships, tailored his communications to various stakeholders, ensured the continuous stream of updates, and showcased his SME in the system by producing highly effective distilled training guides for all of the affected groups. Suffice to say, no project is without a hiccup, what was important is that Ernesto remained professional and tirelessly engages with the parts of the organization that requires more help.

  • I was Ernesto's advisor for his master’s research project (Queen’s University) in which he demonstrated a remarkably high level of initiative, organizational ability and creativity. He researched the literature, made contacts, arranged for and conducted interviews, gathered secondary sources, performed an in-depth analysis and completed the research report. His written work was good and his analysis excellent.
    In short, he is a talented, intelligent and personable individual who would make a positive contribution to any organization that employed him.
