Embracing and Supporting Change in Your Organization

Today’s economic environment is booming: unemployment is low, profits are high, and organizations are operating and changing faster than they ever have before.

While we celebrate economic and organizational success for our companies, we are painfully aware of the reality: the pressure is constant and change is hard. We imagine that if change were somehow easier, we’d all be more successful. Is this possible?

The popular assumption is that the best way to deal with change is to put together an initiative to “manage change,” develop a change management strategy, and encourage the workforce to embrace change. We may even train our leaders to become change champions to not only manage change, but to go a step further and lead change.

Unfortunately, this traditional method does not work. With only a 70% failure rate for change initiatives over the last few decades, it’s time to take a hard look at how you can embrace and support change in your organizations.


  • Outline the two basic approaches to change.
  • Understand how resolving the tension between the two approaches will improve support and action for leaders to embrace change.
  • Discover the most overlooked and underestimated “secret ingredient” to enhancing change readiness.
  • Enumerate practical steps for building support for change.
  • Describe 5 pitfalls to avoid in creating a change management plan
