Leading Through Change & Transition

Two-thirds of change initiatives fail or have mixed results because of poor execution, lack of support and ineffective communication.*

The bottom-line is this: Productivity drops during times of change—to as low as 3.6 hours a day. If an average employee loses 1 hour of productivity a day, this alone can result in a 3 million-dollar loss for your organization.

From culture change to leadership transitions—to mergers and acquisitions—and everything in between, we know that change comes in many forms. It often impacts leaders across the organization at all levels—and is a constant challenge in today’s fast-paced, complex workforce.

In fact, 78% of organizations report having undergone some type of change in the last three years. And there is no end in sight—75% of executives surveyed expect the frequency of change to increase.*

Do you have a scalable and repeatable process to equip your talent to effectively drive change?

This is where we can help. Change works when we address the often overlooked human side of change—we refer to this as Transition Management. This thinking is grounded in the belief that we must approach change through the perspective of the employees who are going through it. Why? Because until people successfully transition from the old way to the new way, the change won’t happen successfully.

Here’s why this matters for your business: Managing Transitions can lessen your bottom-line impact. We partner with William Bridges Associates to bring you the Three-Phase Transition Model. This framework takes into account that each individual leader processes change at a different pace—and in a way that is unique to the individual.

It starts with Endings, which is characterized by letting go of the past, getting closure and saying goodbye. Next is the Neutral Zone—this is the in-between time characterized by everything from confusion to a clean slate. New Beginnings occur when renewal takes place—people feel like a part of the new chapter and are excited for what’s ahead.
