Today’s reality of change is more complex and transformational than what traditional change management and project management are designed to address. Failure in organizational transformation often results from a weak launch, personal role uncertainties, performance drops, and work relationships threatened by the stress of marching into an unknown future.
Often change management consultants are not brought into a project until there are already issues with stakeholders. There has been no access to the leaders to align with the initiative and develop themselves to champion the change.
“People” issues are so often produced by the lack of attention to the leaders and the stakeholders earlier in the initiative’s journey. The fact is that launch needs to address strategies to reduce the people issues from the start. Doing so goes beyond traditional change management and project management.
Join Dr. Linda Ackerman Anderson to explore five key “people” strategies leaders and consultants can use to help their transformational changes get off on the right foot and sustain positive engagement until results are achieved.
You’ll understand how these strategies assist people to evolve how they think, feel, and collectively work – as a critical part of the transformation strategy – so they can maximize leader and stakeholder commitment and engagement and enhance adoption and sustainment.
Together, we’ll look beyond simply saying we need to “focus on people more,” and address specifically how to focus on your leaders and stakeholders to deliver extraordinary results from your change efforts.
