Whenever a new project is initiated or new consultants brought in, many employees in most companies tend to resist or barely engage with the initiative. The reason for this simple, most people are resistant to change till they are able to understand and relate to the benefits created by the change. Yet, most companies do not communicate this to their employees and instead most employees are simply told that there’s a new system/process implemented and that they should follow it just because.
The basic human nature that calls for rebellion due to lack of understanding kicks in and you get very little buy in from employees. So how can you solve this?
We help you to come up with a strategy on communicating the new change, the reasons behind it and the benefits of the change.
Once the consultants leave, what happens to the newly implemented programme or projects?
As you can imagine, they are often thrown by the wayside once the initial furor wears out. Programmes are not simply projects that suddenly end one day, it usually takes an extended period of time for it be a successful programme. Sadly, many businesses do not invest in enough resources or put in place enough controls for the programme to succeed. Employees also cannot be expected to change and adapt within a short period of time.
We help you by first making sure that the programme objectives first defined from the start of the engagement is met, that the control structure of the programme is put in place and the sponsor is well equipped to continue the ongoing management of the programme.
The company’s mission and vision statements are undoubtedly important for the company employees to know what exactly they do and what they are aiming for. How about a shared purpose? Crafting a purpose is not a branding process, it should be a business effort crafted right at the beginning of any programme engagement.
We believe that team engagement and purpose is so much more than knowing what you do as a business. It is going back to the basics, the benefits that your business or the change you are implementing truly provides for your customers. A shared purpose in a company is a springboard, a starting point towards a unified team effort towards something bigger than their individual selves.
We help you craft this purpose and communicate it as well.
