Before COVID-19, studies had revealed that nearly ¾ of all change initiatives fail, resulting in loss of productivity, time, money and most importantly employee morale. Now—more than ever—the call-to-action for stability in the workplace is loud and clear. This unprecedented situation is causing overlapping waves of rapid change where familiar change management processes maybe limited. We require a new perspective.
So how do we, as leaders, help our teams survive and thrive in this chaotic world? The first step is adopting fast constant change as the way business will be conducted in the new normal. And who better to know what is working well and not so well than the leaders in the trenches?
Following the great success of our recent webinar, Your Co-Created Playbook for Remote Work Success, Allen Interactions hosted another open forum to collect the insights, lessons learned, and cautionary tales of change management. Together we created a reference playbook illustrating strategies and tactics to enable skills that foster organizational resilience, trust, compassion, and empathy.
