How Leaders should deal with change today

The world today is certainly on fast-forward, and the only thing that we can rely on is that change is constant. In our fast-changing world, the strategic approach to change is often clear: Without doing things differently, organizations are unlikely to succeed, or last.

We know that effective leadership starts with strong change management support. Anyone sat in a meeting time and time again where the executive team have asked you to “pivot” or “react quickly?” It can be tough to know what that means for managers and their leaders.

So here are some pointers for managing change effectively in the workplace:

Communicate

Unsuccessful leaders tended to focus on the “what” behind the change. Successful leaders communicated the “what” and the “why.” When the “what” and the “why are communicated, leaders can connect the change to the organization’s culture and values and create a narrative that inspires urgency and buy-in.

Collaborate

Successful leaders work across departments and silos, encouraging employees to mingle and share. They also include employees in decision-making early on, strengthening their commitment to change. Unsuccessful change leaders failed to engage employees early and often in the change process. Rarely should change be a surprise. If it is, chances are your leader is doing it wrong.

Commit

Be open to change. Change is difficult, but leaders who negotiate it successfully are resilient and persistent, and willing to step outside their comfort zone regularly. Leaders who struggle with change will often be impatient for results and demonstrate their unhappiness through their messaging, tone, and demeanour.
