J Kotter defines change management as the utilization of basic structures and tools to control any organizational change effort. Change management’s goals is to minimize the change impacts on workers and avoid distractions. It is is a structured approach to shifting/transitioning individuals, teams, and organizations from a current state to a desired future state. It is an organizational process aimed at helping employees to accept and embrace changes in their current business environment.
Our change management workshop identitifes and addresses the changing attitudes and behaviours experienced in a changing environment.
Successful change management is more likely to occur if the following are included:
Effective Communications that informs various stakeholders of the reasons for the change (why?), the benefits of successful implementation (what is in it for us, and you) as well as the details of the change (when? where? who is involved? how much will it cost? etc.).
An effective education, training and/or skills upgrading scheme for the organization so that employees align themselves to the overall strategic direction of the organization.
One-to-One coaching to alleviate any change related fears and monitor implementation and find tuning of the impact of change on an individual.
