Navigating Organizational Change: Strategies for Success

Organizational change doesn't have to be a disaster. โ€

Break through resistance and earn the team's trust.

Here's how ๐Ÿ‘‡

Transparency, tailored communication and active listening
Organization does not have to be a disaster

Clear, consistent communication during change?

It's a superpower I'm still learning to master.

I witnessed major projects crash and burn.

And I have made my own mistakes. ๐Ÿ’ฃ

The truth is, finding the right tone and reaching everyone isn't easy. What's easy is falling in these pitfalls:

โŒ ๐—œ๐—ป๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—•๐—น๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ธ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐˜๐˜€: Confusion and resistance are built when information is not shared. Early updates may not be perfect but bring more trust than silence.

โŒ ๐—ข๐—ป๐—ฒ-๐—ฆ๐—ถ๐˜‡๐—ฒ-๐—™๐—ถ๐˜๐˜€-๐—”๐—น๐—น: Town halls and mass emails are a start. But never leave it there - how do you know if people get the point?

โŒ ๐—ง๐—ฎ๐—น๐—ธ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ฎ๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐˜, ๐—ป๐—ผ๐˜ ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต: Being closed in an ivory tower and not talking to the people impacted --> steering into an iceberg.

So, how can you we do better during change?

โœจ ๐—ง๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐˜€๐—ฝ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐˜† & ๐—ง๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€: Be honest, be prompt, and explain the "why" and "when". Trust starts with genuine transparency.

โœจ ๐—ง๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐—น๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—”๐—ฝ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ต: Meet the people where they are - mix things up with walk-in calls, coffee chats, and individual discussions.

โœจ ๐—”๐—ฐ๐˜๐—ถ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ ๐—Ÿ๐—ถ๐˜€๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด: Don't just talk, listen! Encourage feedback, create safe spaces, and truly engage in dialogue. It's a two-way street!

Leading through change needs constant information.

Not a one-time announcement. Not closed doors.

Build trust with transparency, and actively listen.

Build actions based on feedback.


Change is an opportunity for growth for everyone.

What is your hack to succeed with change?
