The truth is getting implementation projects across the finish line is ALWAYS harder in reality than it is in your mind’s eye.
You’ve, no doubt, fantasized about the business efficiencies made available by new technology, the rollout of SOPs, a new sales methodology, whatever… and then been met with blank stares from your team when you excitedly announce these grand visions:
- “Why do we need to do this?”
- “This seems complicated!”
- “What’s wrong with what we’re doing right now?”
As today’s guest, Jeff Skipper, says: the easiest thing for an employee to do when confronted with change is NOTHING. Jeff is a Change Management consultant and just authored a new book called Dancing With Disruption (definitely check it out).
If you need to get your people doing things a new way, adopting a new system, or dropping an old one, the fundamentals of Change Management can help. At its core Change Management is about guiding organizational changes all the way from conception through to implementation.
Jeff gets hired by companies like IBM, Suncor, Cenovus, Bayer, Molson, and Sport Chek to help them make monumental internal changes, and he’s here today to help us do the same.
