Change Management: You can, if you think you can

Sep 28th 2015 at 3:57 AM

Change management sends jitters in the body of even seasoned executives because of the multi layered complexities involved, it has people, it has structures and then it has clients. The anxiety, fear, risks permeate over everything. Getting to the basics can get you started!

Firstly, it is important to get a clear idea and familiarise yourselves with change anything scheme and its operative principles. This approach basically is aimed at managing the deterrents to change that are in built in a person. Sometimes, these resistive forces could also be social or cultural. There are stages and methods to approach these forces of resistance depending upon the severity. It should also be noted that these work flexibly between personal and professional spaces alike.

Some of these include:

•    Personal motivation: Motivation goes a long way. It has the power to bring changes that one cannot even think of, that additional push can get difficult things done quite easily.

•    Personal ability: This needs more detailed analysis. One needs to find out the limitations of one’s ability. Once the root cause of the problem is identified it becomes easier to find solutions. Personal ability on an easier note can translate into doing a personality check and introspecting over the results.

•    Rewards: Any positive sign and result should be rewarded. This acts as an impetus for people to deal with their issues and yield for better result.

While these strategies assist in training people towards change management, it should be noted that they should be applied in a strategic manner depending upon the need and result.  That is in fact, the sign of healthy and effective training.

While dealing with seasoned professionals there are other stratifies that might work better. These include:

•    Persuasion: This is an art that can reach places. Influencing and persuading people not only get you closer to their thinking and apprehensions but also gives you an opportunity to mould it to your advantage. Good holistic change management training would focus on imparting persuasion and influencing skills to people.
•    Communication Skills: These need to be good to tackle people better. Most of the times what is said take a secondary seat and people only remember how it is being said. A good communicator will always end up getting more success in managing change and people. Accentuating and improving communication skills should be another concern of any good change management training program.
•    Negotiation Skills: This might seem odd but negotiation can sometimes overturn things. This works better in case of rigid employees. You could reach a middle ground through negotiation and take things ahead from there.
