Great Change Management

Unlock the secrets of executing a fully successful change.

If you want to get somewhere new, you need to  prepare for change. Otherwise, your company will stay stuck or worse: pull a muscle.

What would be possible for your business if you could successfully introduce and execute a key change?

 

Time to get serious about change management!  Hiring Boldly Reach Your Goals to assist you in your change planning and execution is a guarantee that your change will succeed.

 

After leading several organization wide changes (including IT systems changes, contract changes, product line changes, company-wide pay and benefit changes, mergers and shutdowns) Catherine knows WHAT NOT TO DO and how to set your company's people up for success through a change. 

 

By following the ADKAR model, Boldly will assist you in leading a great change for your company and leave you with the tools (and high morale) you need to make future changes successful too.

My experience with change management started by being "the boss" but not knowing how to manage change.  A receipe for disaster. 

 

Because of a change, my company lost a longtime team member and staff lost trust and confidence in the leadership team.  What change predicated this mess?  Oh, just a better benefits plan with no increased costs to employees.  I was caught completely unaware by this strong negative reaction to a good thing and all I could think was: WHAT THE HECK IS HAPPENING?!?  I felt completely demonized and utterly isolated.  What had I done wrong?

 

After getting training and taking structured change management seriously, within a year, we were able to merge two companies, have everyone sign on to a new employment contract, reorganize reporting structures throughout the corporation and shift into a new, more regulatory-heavy industry, all while watching morale increase.

 

The value of managing change properly is difficult to overstate.  With poor change comes frustration, resistance, trust deficits, bad decisions, poor retention and weakened communication company-wide.  I know from experience!  Let me help you avoid that drama, stress and cost by using what I have learned to your benefit.

My REAL LIFE Change Horror Story

To Change or not to Change

 

Are you anxious or excited about making a major change at your company?

 

Are you not even considering a change you think will help your business' bottom line because you feel it will cause too much disruption, hurt morale, cause a backlash...? 

 

Is change not "worth it" when you consider the way your team will likely respond?

 

Well, the truth is that positive, team affirming change IS possible when you follow a structured apporoach that allows people to engage in the change process and believe in the change.

 

And, not changing is not a good longterm solution to having a prickly, set-in-its-ways team.  One day, you will need to make change happen so you need to know how to do it well.

Don't bury your head in the sand.  Change like a pro and lead change properly.

Don't bury your head in the sand!  Choose to do a great change well.

Change Management

the Process:

 

Change happens when all the individuals involved have accepted and implemented a change.  That means that change is all about managing the change process for the individuals on your staff. 

 

In partnering with Boldly, you will co-create a concrete change plan that will bring your team from resistance through to acceptance and implementation of the change you need to run the business you envision.

 

As you lead the execution of the change plan, you will be coached through any perceived set-backs, guided through planned change initiatives and supported through the uncomfortable process of change until your team has not only changed but is also happier than when you started the process.
