We're here to help you change...
Change is like a game of golf: a long walk filled with endless variety, hazard, and challenge. Yet, unlike golfers, many executives pride themselves in just one aspect of the change journey - the “tee drive” of high-level direction. They think all they have to do is cast the vision and leave the rest to their followers. Casting vision is indeed critical but it’s not enough to sustain change or to see it through. While the big picture has its place, the hardest part of the change journey - the part that paralyses people - is the detail. The detail of new behaviours, new habits and, above all, the detail of communication that clarifies, inspires and helps people navigate the journey.
How much time do you spend planning and communicating the “long game” of change?
As John Medina once pointed out, "If companies had has little respect for profits as they do for communication, most of them would be bankrupt". Neglect planning, neglect communication, neglect the long game...and most efforts to incite change, regardless of its scale, are doomed to fail.
