Change is inevitable. Organisations are constantly required to adapt to the environment in which they exist in order to stay relevant, efficient and profitable. However, they can only do this via the people they employ. It follows, then, that workplaces that provide organisational change management training for their staff are more likely to succeed.
Why support your staff to manage the effects of change?
Every person responds to change in their own way. However, we know that the majority of people resist change. This is not a sign of weakness or innate human fault. Rather, it’s simply an acknowledgement of the fact that our brains become habitualized to particular ways of doing things. And it takes time, effort and a certain amount of emotional discomfort to create and embed the neurological circuits required to feel at ease.
Think of how you feel when you approach a stranger for help, learn a new IT system or commence work for a new employer. Initially (at least for most of us!) these situations and events feel challenging and stressful, even painful! However, simply through practice, we become used to the new environment and experienced a corresponding sense of ease.
So the fundamental question here is this: Given that we know resistance to change is inevitable, is it possible to accelerate this process of acceptance, of rehabitualisation? Is it an advantage to support your staff to better manage their emotional reactions and more effectively embrace the process of change?
Thankfully the answer is YES! And this is where we come in.
