People Director, Swinton

"I've had experience of managing change both with and without external support. We used Working Transitions ....the key benefits were the immediate professionalism, dedication and confidence that they bought to the situation. They are experts in what they do.

People often feel that change is being 'done' to them – therefore being supported by someone within their organisation can feel too 'close' and can prevent them from opening up. Being able to take a step back and get support from an independent third-party can help people to understand that this is not personal - it happens to people across lots of companies and a successful outcome is possible.."

Leading a Successful Change Journey – Coaching, workshops and resources for leaders and managers to communicate and lead through the change.  The foundation for success.

Q

Why do so many organisational change programmes fail?

A

In our opinion, it's because of a focus on the process of change – rather than the people involved.  If you don't have your people on side, you run the risk of early derailment of your project.  If you don't properly engage and support your people, you can expect to see:
 
Lack of communication – Chinese whispers, poor understanding and catastrophising
Concerns across the wider organisation – including your unaffected population
Disengagement – and the loss of key talent
Increased absence
Loss of productivity
Disruptive behaviours
Time issues – HR and Management time taken up with people issues
Reputational damage
Difficulty attracting new talent
 

Q

What is the Change Engine?

A

The Change Engine is a logical and streamlined suite of powerful and impactful interventions that drive a successful organisational change journey.  

Offering support to leaders and managers even before the change is announced, right through to the re-engagement of remaining employees post-event, The Change Engine prevents the de-railers that can sabotage a successful organisational change project and ensures that the workforce that remains is both productive and engaged.  

Q

Do I need to use all of the Change Engine tools?

A

Not necessarily – every organisation is different – we will work closely with you to establish which organisational change tools will have the most impact in your organisation and across your change project.  

Get in touch with the team for a no-obligation chat about YOUR change engine programme.
