Change breathes life into the unknown.
“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking .”
Business strategy inevitably leads to change initiatives in geographies, systems, structures and processes which require management.
Do you find it hard to interpret strategy, execute change & make change stick? Do your people find a way to navigate around it? Is change difficult to sustain? Do the changes you make deliver a return on investment?
Change Leadership requires & feeds into your leadership strategy, cultures, beliefs & practice. A managers ability to lead, engage & inspire your people at times of change will very much depend on your ability to plan your people strategy much earlier than you commence your change initiatives.
Making change a norm without creating change apathy is the secret to businesses who continuously innovate, collaborate & provide psychological safety for new thinking & failure.
Successful change requires sound thinking, strategy and execution. Change requires forward thinking, quite often the time spent on planning and sign off eats into the time to run a robust change process. Change requires empathic, confident and transparent leadership, cultural alignment, communication, collaboration and an unwavering commitment to recognise where mistakes are made and adapt accordingly.
Are you robust enough, do you follow through with continual testing, validation and importantly the courage to turn back when change is not working? How about communication on lessons learnt? Can we help?
