Yes, change is hard. There’s no getting around it that it can be upsetting, aggravating, fear-inducing for our employees, managers and yes, even our leaders. Nothing has greater potential to cause failures, loss of productivity or plummeting quality.
And yet, nothing is as important as change to the survival of your organization. History is full of examples of organizations that failed to change and are now extinct.
The good news though is that it doesn’t have to be as hard as we make it on ourselves – that is if you have a plan, start early and build the capability in your organization.
Success comes to those who know how to make change happen – those who can make others think it was their idea, know how to time it as not to tax the organization too greatly and can make it stick overtime.
Our approach to managing change has been honed over years and years of experience and seeing what works and what doesn’t.
We have a robust, yet flexible, methodology to get leaders aligned on a common vision, uncover and address the pain points in the organization, set a clear roadmap, create a sense of urgency and engage the organization in driving change.
We’ve successfully helped companies who are undertaking mergers, culture change, process redesign, re-brandings and more – and we’ve worked alongside them to help them build capability in their people so they can support and sustain the change long after we’re gone. Read: we don’t come into your company and “do this to you” rather in partnership with you – and we don’t attempt to become permanent fixtures in your organization. We know this won’t help you long-term and your results are our number one priority.
Much research has been done and consistently shows that over 50% of company initiatives fail due to a lack of change management planning and expertise. Make sure your company doesn’t underestimate the impact. If your company has ever experienced any set-back in a change initiative, call us – we can help guide you through this and make successful change a part of your company DNA.
