Change brings out both the best and worst in us. It sounds simple but most organisations usually start tackling change by thinking about what needs to be done, rather than understanding where their people really are on the change curve. This combined with poor communication can lead to people quickly becoming disengaged at best, and resistant to change at worst.
We can help HR teams to better prepare and manager periods of change or restructures. Our focus is on communication, values, contracting for success, a mutual learning model and change management models.
Change is said to be fast, but transition is slow. (Bridges, 2009)
Changes like restructures or leadership changes usually happen fairly quickly. Transitioning teams into new more effective ways of working. That can take much longer.
Better understanding your team, divisions or organisations culture can better prepare for a smooth transition during times of change.
But occasionally team restructures and business restructures are necessary to adapt to external market changes and to improve ways of working.
We can work with you in whatever way you prefer. Based on our experience here are some of the things we’ve done with other clients that have worked well.
Created with your business needs in mind, we offer a range of cost-effective workshops to develop leadership skills. We can also build tailored workshops to meet your specific needs.
Facilitating teams through organisational change, creating a company vision, culture change and new team creation. Building awareness and contracting for future ways of working.
We work with you as a trusted advisor, providing a confidential environment to organise your thoughts. We do not judge, impose or assume we are the ‘expert’ in what is best for you. Instead we use the art and science of psychology in practical ways to support you to create your own success.
