Change Management

Change is a constant. But that doesn't make it any less disruptive or unsettling.

Change Management

Organizational change that is poorly managed hampers productivity and damages morale. Leaders have a responsibility to look change in the eye -
to understand, manage, and cope with it effectively.

Meta-Culture's consultants help leaders to better appreciate the impacts of organizational change. Managers need to understand why, in a changing environment, it is necessary to go beyond normal responsibilities and provide critical communication and guidance. They need the skills to manage change processes with transparency, empathy, and decisiveness.

Our Change Management services prepare organizational leaders to:
  • Understand organizational dynamics.
  • Adapt to and negotiate change.
  • Communicate change and manage uncertainty.
  • Understand workplace identity and group formation.
  • Uncover assumptions and stereotypes, including ideas about status and power.
  • Identify and address employees' fears and anxieties with openness and empathy.

    How can I communicate the changes to my team when, at my level, even I don't know what's going to happen?
    hange becomes more anxiety-producing for employees when they aren't clear how it will impact them. Top management too often makes the mistake of delaying communication to employees until they themselves are crystal clear about the change process. The result? Rampant rumors, anxiety, and attrition.
    A good change process involves constant communication, even when there's nothing specific to communicate. Meta‑Culture consultants help management teams develop skills and put in place mechanisms to explain ambiguity and actively listen to employees' fears and anxieties. The change is still tough, but employees feel reassured that management is keeping them informed and taking their concerns seriously.

META SPEAK

New clothes, new job, new romance, new cuisine. We all love change when it's stimulating and on our terms. But if that were always the case, we wouldn't need to manage it.
