Planning for Transition
Planning for Transition: What comes next?
It’s said that three things are true when it comes to change: Some change is good; some change isn’t so good; but in the final analysis, change is unfailingly inevitable. In business as in life, managing change and transition is a complex, high-stakes process. What’s required are interpersonal and leadership skills, with comprehensive support systems strategically configured and up to the task. Change brings chaos, but it also brings opportunity.
We help you manage the chaos and leverage the opportunity
Whether your change is rooted in a major organizational culture shift, you’re contending with explosive growth, a merger or consolidation, transitioning to new leadership or just moving on to the next phase, expert change management guides you through turbulent waters, keeping your team flexible, adaptable and committed. Change isn’t easy and each employee responds differently to it, but small group discussions identify individual emotional reactions. Central to a smooth transition is recognizing where each person and team, as well as the organization, lies along the continuum of change. Each of the three Stages of Change has specific attributes affecting team members. The correct procedures benefit everyone.
The idea is for you to thrive, not just survive. Small group exercises and discussion ensure everyone in the room knows what will be different and has a strategy helping them manage it. The highest priority is after the workshop, back in the workplace. We’ll craft a message—the words and actions— that you can share throughout your organization. From the C-suite to the very newest team members, we can’t hide from change, but approached properly, we can prepare to meet it head-on, tame it, manage it and become stronger for it.
