Most change initiatives fail and for similar reasons: 80% of companies use a top-down, minimal-involvement approach that ignores the concerns of the people who are affected.*
Leading People Through Change® is unique: its backbone is a high-involvement, collaborative solution that invites all parties into the change process. This inclusive approach draws on the latest academic research on leading organisational change and our 30 years of experience in the field.
Research shows that a high-involvement approach that uses dialogue between change leaders and employees decreases implementation time by 33% and increases employee engagement by 34% to 58%.*
Positive effects on productivity and morale
Increased “capacity to change” and an adaptive environment where change is effectively implemented on an ongoing basis
More buy-in and less time to achieve the desired performance
The development of business-wide change leadership capabilities
The most successful companies are agile and embrace change as part of their culture to stay ahead of the competition. When your managers know how to effectively create change, they anticipate resistance, proactively address concerns, and increase buy-in to ensure a successful change implementation and move your organisation forward.
Increase buy-in and resilience - Leaders who can diagnose and address the predictable concerns of their team members can reduce resistance and increase buy-in and commitment to the change.
Get results faster - Organisational change initiatives that are led effectively are supported by employees and realise results faster.
Build change leadership capability - Successful companies make the capacity to change a part of their culture and become more resilient and agile.
An Unexpected Opportunity to Change the Way We Change
The coronavirus pandemic upended our world in a matter of weeks but it has acted like a microscope by magnifying how courageous, curious, agile, and resilient we (individuals and organisations!) can be. It gives us new ways of thinking about how and where work gets done. What are some of the lessons we’re learning?
We know how disruptive managing change in organisations can be, and we know how to help you preserve the morale and productivity of your people to achieve the desired results.
Our Leading People Through Change® program teaches your managers how to lead successful, high involvement change initiatives. Managers learn how to identify and address the questions that employees typically raise and how to resolve their concerns to increase buy-in, commitment and involvement.
The program is based on 30 years of real-world change leadership consulting experience and research that shows that people are less resistant to change when they have opportunities to share their concerns and be actively involved in the change process every step of the way.
Leading People Through Change® is delivered face-to-face or virtually. It can be delivered to an intact team working on a specific change initiative or as an open-enrollment format to build change leadership capability across your organisation. No matter how it’s delivered, your leaders will be getting critical work done as they learn.
