“SURVIVAL IS NOT ABOUT THE STRONGEST OR THE MOST INTELLIGENT,
BUT WHO CAN BEST ADAPT TO CHANGE.” – Charles Darwin.
We help our clients capture sustained value from change and transformation objectives by preparing them to transition efficiently with precision and predictability.
Our change experts have over two decades of experience supporting clients to succeed in implementing large-scale transformation and change, including mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, technology implementations, new market expansion, senior leader transitions, culture change, and functional transformations. We assist organizations to transform themselves, while building the internal capability to anticipate and respond to market changes.
FOCUS ON LEADERS’ SUCCESS
Active and visible executive sponsorship is the number one reason change projects are successful. While others focus on process, we favor the alignment of the senior team and the leaders who are the meaning makers for the organization — those who are accountable for delivering results, maximizing engagement and commitment, and capturing value from change.
FOCUS ON AMPLIFYING FEEDBACK VERSUS DEFLATING RESISTANCE
Our change experts look for and excavate resistance from the senior team, the change team, the expanded leadership cadre, and stakeholders. It is from this data, that we can sequence the appropriate change levers to quickly improve engagement, commitment and results.
Those with strong safety cultures who appreciate decreased work related injuries, illnesses and property damages understand that by highlighting and acknowledging safety incidents, safety concerns are anticipated, identified and mitigated. In this same way, by acknowledging signals of resistance proactively, pressure points can be mitigated to accelerate the speed of change.
DELIVERING SUCCESSFUL OUTCOMES — BY DESIGN
Our rigorous, empirically validated approach helps senior leaders apply a repeatable process to improve financial and operational delivery during change and transformation. Leveraged Delivery™ is our structured approach to change that mobilizes teams to quickly achieve tangible results. Because change projects happen within 90-day segments or less, our clients are able to strengthen accountability, maintain focus, innovate, and learn and adjust as they go.
Our approach is based on the top five factors correlated with successful change endeavors: senior team sponsorship, dedicated change resources, communications, leadership support, and managing resistance to change. In addition, we utilize unique change levers that maximize successful results.
MAINTAINING FOCUS WITH RAPID-CYCLE COMMUNICATIONS™
Our tailored communications approach helps our clients maintain focus and promote change readiness. We develop a robust communications strategy and key messages that transform stakeholders from acceptance to commitment.
Our communication experts develop leadership messages that:
- Create the business case for change
- Promote confidence in the organization’s ability to implement the change
- Support engagement and commitment
- Reveal the benefits for changing and the costs of not changing
