A successful change is one that delivers its intended benefits. Success is delivered through committed and equipped leaders and managers that engage people to facilitate individual change adoption.
This simple definition should not lead anyone to think that successful change is easy. It is not. Because change is hard leaders are looking for the secret sauce that will drive success. Organizations that master change build resilience and an enduring competitive advantage. The key to change resilience is leadership.

Every change has a mechanical and human aspect
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 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.
