We are experts at guiding organizations through significant change. Our senior level consultants have worked with Fortune 500 companies and some of the most complex change initiatives. With each engagement, our mission is to prepare, equip and support both leaders and their teams to drive successful, sustained outcomes. Change Management is a tried and proven discipline based on decades of research. It provides a structured approach to plan and implement all aspects of change. To embrace change, people need the opportunity to express their concerns and influence how the change is implemented. Leaders know where they want to take the organization, but often need help crafting and orchestrating the plan to inspire and motivate their managers and teams. New training and skills are also often required at both the management and team levels.
Here’s how we deliver change management consulting to implement successful change:
Assess and plan the integration of:
Teach the new ways to work. Assess historical knowledge and gaps between new and old. Document new processes in relation to their current jobs so learners can perform the new process successfully.
(Custom training can be part of our consulting, and we also offer established leadership development curriculum.)
Craft and deliver the messages about the change and its impact during all phases to address the concerns of each audience.
Document current state and future state ways of doing business or working together to identify the gaps of change.
To implement change successfully, no matter how big or small, it’s critical to take the time to analyze and plan for all of these areas.
Roughly 70% of change efforts fail or are derailed, which can lead to low productivity and morale, unmet expectations, wasted time and money, and increased employee turnover. Change is not easy. Leaders need the buy-in and commitment of the people who are being asked to change. Leaders need to be prepared with a sound strategy, process and effective communication to guide teams to activate and sustain the change. Change is a team sport!
