So much about the world we work in has changed. And the changes keep coming faster, in new forms, and with increased impact on the workforce. Leaders need new capabilities and a new way of thinking to succeed.
“Change is an opportunity to make a difference, to improve, and to grow. Whether your company needs to manage continuous, defined changes or navigate the uncertainty of complex transformation, your people are the most important part of the equation.”
When companies understand how they need to adapt their products and services to remain competitive, they face an equal or even more significant challenge in determining how their culture and people will support the new business strategy.
Success is determined by the ability to translate external drivers and strategies into individual and organizational outcomes.
In an increasingly fluid business environment, companies must
continually anticipate, respond and adapt by developing leaders and employees with agile and aligned change management skills.
Change management is a process that aims to provide individuals with the knowledge and skills to help them adapt, respond, and lead organizational changes.
Most people usually resist change. According to Forbes, 62% of people don’t like leaving their comfort zones. That’s why some employees may find themselves unsuccessful with the transition (even if those changes will benefit everyone).
Some individuals also go through a ‘change fatigue’ when they become unmotivated after too many changes. Management may roll out multiple initiatives a bit too early without thinking through. In the end, the plan becomes unsustainable, which eventually puts people’s efforts to waste.
When building a successful change management process, make sure to do the following:
Changes happen in different phases. Here in LHH, we believe in providing scalable solutions that start from the employee to the employer.
Here are the three levels of change management that we consider when planning:
This level aims to address how a person copes up with changes successfully. It is often more emotionally-driven than the other levels and requires a more empathetic approach.
This level refers to the structural changes that a team must go through. It relies on a neat & consistent workflow to effectively deliver good results.
This level refers to how businesses build their own culture and position themselves in an ever-changing, competitive environment.
LHH simplifies this journey by helping leaders unpack the most difficult transformation challenges into discrete and executable pieces
Our advisors bring insights based on research, data, and analytics to advise on critical factors like talent architecture, future skills and capabilities, culture, and the best approaches to leadership development.
Accelerate Change consists of two learning journeys, one for leaders, the other for employees. Each learning path includes up-front assessments, in-person or virtual workshops, post workshop application and capability development supported by coaching that helps support ongoing reinforcement, skill building and sustainability of the learning.
