Emotional Impact of Change

[Watch the video here.]

During my executive leadership development session, we looked at three factors related to leading change that I know you can benefit from.

Ask yourself these questions…

First, have you considered how the volume of the change you’re asking employees to juggle is putting significant strain on the wellbeing of your workforce, directly impacting your productivity and quality?

Secondly, have you considered how change initiatives are aligned with your most important strategic priorities against the effort required to implement those changes? Are your employees being exhausted physically and emotionally by the busy work on less important priorities?

Third, have you considered where people are along the stages of emotional transition and why? How is your change process supporting employees along that journey. The leaders in my program were fascinated by the variation in the emotional stages of the C-Suite, vs. their individual teams, and themselves.

Most change doesn’t go so well because you fail to engage employees and customers on an emotional level. Adjust your focus, increase your odds of success in leading change.
