Change is often met with resistance. People get comfortable with their systems and become hesitant to learn new ways. But change is necessary It leads to innovation and promotes growth. 

When you’re trying to create change in the workplace but getting nowhere, there are key strategies to help get your team on board. 

  • Start at the top. Change is always most successful when it starts at the top. The way a corporation’s executive team embraces and reacts to the change will determine how employees respond.
  • Communication is key. How and when you communicate the change will make a big impact on its success. And it’s important to include information on key questions employees will have, like:
  • why is this happening
  • how it will impact the workforce
  • what objectives need to be met
  • Create a plan. Implementing change can be a slow process, especially in bigger organizations. But having a detailed roadmap for everyone to follow makes it easier to monitor progress and milestones. 
  • Anticipate roadblocks. Regardless of how well you communicate and prepare, there’s a good chance adjustments will have to be made. Empower others to voice their opinions and be ready to pivot if necessary.
