“How many times do we have to explain why this change is necessary? Everyone tells me they understand … but as soon as my back is turned, they continue like nothing has happened”
It is really worrying how many organisations we’ve met within recent months, who are struggling to get business critical changes embedded into their day to day operations.
We’ve observed the same basic errors being made that make change too difficult to implement.
Having a tendency to “jump action”
Impatience leads to looking at ways to execute before making sure people get the “why” the change is needed.
The focus is all on the relatively simple “hard” side of change (i.e. structure, systems and processes)
The more difficult “soft” side of change (i.e. getting people aligned and winning their hearts and minds to play a full part in making change happen is left for later, or ignored)
Under-estimating what it takes to reach an alignment of and between people.
Based on authentic leadership generating complete trust, total openness and mutual respect.
Please remember the fundamentals:
- Change happens quickly
- Habits change slowly
- Human nature never changes
Most organisations try and create change through manipulation rather than inspiration … driving change rather than nurturing it … creating reluctant conscripts rather than willing volunteers – and when the change doesn’t happen quickly enough … more manipulation and force is the outcome.
When the behaviours that you require to improve performance are not being exhibited on a day to day basis, that’s when you’re at most risk. You may find you need someone who will help you brilliantly execute any significant change in a tried and tested, sustainable, risk free, fully aligned way.
