Everyday leaders find themselves navigating levels of uncertainty and complexity at a pace seldom seen before.
This puts them under huge pressure because the hardest time to lead is during change. It is often met with resistance (frustration, blame and anxiety) which (if not navigated well) leads to a breakdown in trust, disengagement and low performance.
Change is the furthest thing from a rational, logical process. It’s about people and their emotions – about how they are feeling and the impact that the change is having on them.
There are two important questions to ask before any change is initiated.
Have the leaders been prepared?
How Change Ready are they and their people?
There is little point in initiating change programs within your organization if your leaders (and your people) aren’t Change Ready.
Do your leaders understand change, and how emotions can either ignite positive change where people remain engaged and keen to move forward through the uncertainty OR fuel a disastrous spiral into resistance, distrust and disengagement?
The SEI LTC has been designed to measure a leader’s Change Readiness – and provides a framework for developing the internal capabilities that drive successful change initiatives.
It it a robust, customized emotional intelligence tool that will equip leaders with the self-awareness and strategies to navigate and lead well through change.
It is a tool for our times – a game changer in supporting people to become truly invested in change.
“Change management as it is traditionally applied is outdated. We know, for example, that 70 percent of change programs fail to achieve their goals, largely due to employee resistance and lack of management support. We also know that when people are truly invested in change it is 30 percent more likely to stick” McKinsey & Company (By Boris Ewenstein, Wesley Smith, and Ashvin Sologar)
