There is perhaps no hotter topic in organizations today than change. Leaders in every organization are looking for the secret sauce that will align their people around changes. Organizations that master change build resilience and an enduring competitive advantage. Recognizing that although organizations have long been treated like machines, the real power for success- no matter the type of organization, the product you offer or the service you deliver—lies in your leadership. Because, when you get down to it; you are really in the people business.
Every change has two aspects that must be managed
Organizations must address the mechanical components and human components to fully adopt and realize the benefits of the change. Changes vary in size and scope, but these two elements are ever-present. The mechanical components of changes are managed using project management, while human aspects employ change management or better yet, Change Engagement™. This is the subject of our work at Leadership Advisors Group. Engaging people to embrace a change is critical to the implementation of the change and the intended benefits. Organizations make assumptions that the wisdom of the change, or the dictates of the leader, or the importance of the change to the organization are enough to win people over.
The reality is, the key to successful change is leadership
That is the reality and that is why we created the Change Engagement™ model, leadership and its presence throughout the change process is key. Change Engagement™ enables leaders to formulate strategies and drive them through to implementation. Together, we’ve aligned Change Engagement with the ExperienceChange simulation. Combining a winning model with hands-on practice simulation affords you the opportunity to hone your skills and develop your own tailored change plans to lead your organization successfully during change.
Practice makes perfect. With the ExperienceChange simulation, you can experience a true-to-life change scenario that will equip your team for the real thing. Whether you use the Change Engagement model, or another methodology, the ExperienceChange simulation will provide the change competence and confidence your organization needs.
