Today’s economic environment is full of uncertain. This means that employers need to be agile and responsive to what is known and unknown. More importantly, they need to ensure that their workforce is ready for change because it is here to stay.
While we strive for economic and organizational success for our companies, we are painfully aware of the reality: the pressure to perform is constant and change is hard. We imagine that if change were somehow easier, we’d all be more successful. Is this possible?
The popular assumption is that the best way to deal with change is to put together an initiative to “manage change,” develop a change management strategy, and encourage the workforce to embrace change. We may even train our leaders to become change champions to not only manage change, but to go a step further and lead change.
Unfortunately, this traditional method does not work. With only a 70% failure rate for change initiatives over the last few decades, it’s time to take a hard look at how you can embrace and support change in your organizations.
