The most important element of an Organizational Change Management (OCM) effort is a clear understanding of the people involved and the circumstances in which they work. Our consultants understand the influence and power of human emotion on a person’s resistance to change.
As every change will meet some form of resistance, a plan should be created to address it. Communicate openly, early and frequently, engaging employees to acknowledge and manage their fears. Developing a comprehensive resistance management plan allows the project team to be on the lookout for various forms of resistance and provides a prescriptive plan on how to address it.
Proper OCM helps avoid employee resistance and tension that disrupts company productivity. Our consultants help leaders understand that the employees are not always necessarily resistant to the change itself, but communication failures can demotivate and disengage employees in the process.
When employees know about a change, they have an opportunity to ask questions and to understand it better. This helps to remove uncertainty from the process and will ultimately pay huge dividends in getting an employee base to be receptive to change—creating a smooth, quick transition that will save the organization time, money, and hardships.
With consistent communication and awareness of progress throughout the project, team members have added security and confidence. Employees begin to see the advantages of the new processes once they’re able to see actual results.
