Are the Conditions Right for Change?
Change management consulting experts know that change rarely comes easy. To increase your odds for success, make sure the right conditions for successful organizational change exist. The wrong conditions cause many employees to resist change and sometimes even resent the leaders of change as in the cartoon above.
The First Step
The first step in effecting organizational change successfully is to recognize that it will take consistent effort and full commitment. Whatever change you envision, it must be worth it. It should make enough of a positive difference in your business results to warrant the time and energy it will take from the entire company.
6 Conditions for Successful Organizational Change
Once you have decided that change is necessary for growth, required to withstand the competition or maybe even paramount for survival, then be sure you are willing to put the following change management consulting conditions in place.
Listen to and answer objections, deal with the “what-ifs,” and go slow but steady. Have active two-way discussions, not one-way communications.
The Bottom Line
if you want your change effort to be successful, you must set up the right conditions for successful organizational change. That means focusing on clarity, commitment, communication, and active engagement of those responsible for both implementing and living with the desired changes.
