Transitions through change

Managing transitions through change

Change is inevitable if a business is to move forward. However, the prospect of change and the way it is managed can sometimes lead to fear and resistance, creating a barrier to achieving the organisation’s goal. We support organisations and their people in successfully navigating through change. Our experienced consultants provide a range of solutions to support you during your change initiative, from enabling individuals or teams to understand the psychology of change, to helping you align people strategy with business direction.

Understanding the psychology of change

We help people understand the psychology of change, working at a deeper level with individuals to help raise their self-awareness of how they respond to change and how others may respond differently. This enables them to challenge the assumptions and barriers that can inhibit the acceptance of change. Only then can people really come to accept change and get on board with the organisation along its journey.

Aligning your people strategy to business strategy

We help change to ‘stick’ by aligning your people strategy to your organisational strategy. This may involve working with you to define new values, competencies, leadership behaviours and vision. These activities are essential in reaching a common understanding of purpose and how to get there. Our approach is to go deeper into understanding the current state of the organisation, culture, norms, and present and future challenges. We then help to future-proof the organisation to meet these challenges and to successfully embed the change.

How we can help:

  • Change workshops – supporting staff and / or managers to develop self-awareness of the psychology of change, and learn how to overcome barriers and embrace change
  • Individual Coaching – supporting individuals during times of change and uncertainty and building resilience
  • Team development – working with teams to improve effectiveness and align goals with future direction
  • Values and competency development - working with you to develop new / revise existing values, competencies and leadership behaviour frameworks that provide people with a clear understanding of the organisation’s goals
