Most business leaders today will agree that being able to successfully lead change is one of the most important challenges facing them. After all—change after change, whether driven by technology, globalization or a changing competitive landscape is coming at businesses in waves faster than ever.
And most will also admit that this is far harder than it would first appear.
This is particularly true of change that requires many people to shift their way of thinking or way of work. The most obvious example is any movement that requires a change in culture.
As many leaders discover—you simply can’t mandate a culture change.
Our VUCA world will however throw at us challenges that will require constant change. And all research points to the fact that most change efforts will not succeed.
What should one then do?
Did you know that leading change is an entire sub-field within management science? It draws its expertise from many other sub-fields such as understanding organizations as interconnected systems, developing organizational cultures and belief systems, organizational design, and finally individual and group psychology.
To develop expertise in this discipline requires a grounding in these fundamental disciplines. It also requires extensive experience with change in many forms and shapes.
This is where we come in. Through advisory services and change interventions designed just for you, your change efforts are far more likely to succeed.
Just as you reach out to specialists to help you manage your talent, or develop your leaders, in times of ever accelerating change, it is specialists in leading change who can be the difference between change that succeeds—or change that was simply attempted.
