Create Involvement and Communicate the Strategic Need to Change
Changes in general are difficult and, in most cases, we live them more like a threat than an opportunity. As we all know, these resistors are not random, but part of the deep survival mechanism that humans have developed over thousands of years.
In any case, in order to be successful with changes we have to involve employees
in them; Therefore we have to implement an effective communication policy
that, one way or another, they share
Employees should see changes not as a mere imposition but as a strategic need to improve
and, why not, for survival. We have to approach it not as a "necessary evil" but as an opportunity to better adapt to the times, to environment, clients, ultimately to become more competitive.
From the engagement and participation, employees internalize the changes
Besides, a good workout plan that will help to build new work habits is also needed. Create and train new good routines.
Changes are hard, but if employees understand and feel that they have got a deep information and participation, that they feel treated as adults and not as children, a good deal of success will be guaranteed.
