Bitesize – The process of identifying Change: the first step

Share this article

Welcome to Bite Size – our bi-monthly blog where we explore a topic in bite size form – short, sharp and easy to digest

Driving growth, Change and renewal is complex and challenging for any organisation and leadership team.

Before trying to tackle any type of Change, it is important to identify what Change is. At CLP, we define it as:

‘Any movement in a situation that has impact on the organisation and its stability’

This could include anything from the recruitment of a new leader to the changes in a country’s economic situation and thus can be voluntary or involuntary.

When dealing with Change within your own organisation it is necessary to label and identify the Change you are experiencing. Once this has been done, it is easier to adopt approaches to deal effectively with Change.

There are numerous approaches you can adopt in order to identify the Change that is occurring. These include:

  • Identify the stakeholders involved
  • Create lists of all Change occurrences
  • Identify the consequences that have happened due to Change

When embarking on the process of identifying Change, leaders often experience resistance within their organisation from stakeholders and employees. At all points it is important to overcome this resistance with effective communication. Avoid empty words but instead, communicate intuitively and humanely to develop trust, acceptance and understanding.

At CLP, we work collaboratively with organisations through tough challenges and Change cases. We use creativity, with hands-on and systematic thinking to achieve increased efficiency and sustainable value when it comes to Chance situations.

Effective Change can only come about within an organisation when there is a collaborative approach to learning, facilitating communication, training leadership and initiating and supporting behavioural Change.
