Practical Tips On How To Move Forward In Your Business Instead Of Losing Ground, AND Get Support From Your Team


Why do some people grow and change and others do not? In a recent article, Fast Company shares what they’ve observed as a leadership pattern that sabotages change. It occurs when senior leaders, who have been thinking, exploring, and debating about a particular change for a while, finally announce plans for a new initiative. Forgetting that others in the organization haven’t been a part of the discussions and are not as familiar with all of the reasons for the change, leaders are surprised by the amount of resistance the new change generates.

Are you considering a serious change effort in your organization? Do you plan to address the concerns of your employees, so you can get everyone on board and moving in the right direction? You’ve probably heard this before, but it’s worth repeating here: People who help to plan the battle rarely battle the plan. While dealing with people’s concerns about change may seem like a lot of hand-holding, it’s important for leaders to remember that they, too, had to process information and personal concerns before they were ready to discuss impact and implementation. If leaders can diagnose people’s stages of concern about a change and respond with the right information at the right time, they can dramatically improve everyone’s trust and participation. This allows people to refocus their energy on what needs to change and what they can do to help make the change successful.

Don’t miss this informative session! You will take away new insights and practical tips on bringing change to your business, as well as how to get buy-in from your team.
