8 LESSONS FOR CHANGE

In Shift! we also share with you eight key lessons that our clients and consultants have learned over the past forty years:

Your leadership team must be aligned
Almost everyone resists change
Because transformation is disruptive, you cannot just tell people to change
The reasons for the change have to be communicated honestly
The way that you communicate upcoming changes is critical
Listening to disgruntled employees helps heal past wounds
Almost all change efforts result in more work for everyone – at least for a while
You must craft a sustainability program that runs parallel to your change initiative
