Seven billion dollar rescue plans. Mortgage crisis. Rising energy costs. These are just some of the huge challenges currently facing the global economy. Recently a salesperson at a large document management company in Minnesota, after determining that unfortunately we didn’t need his services, felt his entire country needed Turner Change Management! It’s this kind of uncertainty about the economy, not just on both sides of our border, but around the world, that has organizations embarking on huge changes or at the very least contemplating what change they need to make next in order to survive.
Change is something every organization has experienced, but successful sustainable change is not. Too often organizations fail to realize the full potential of their intended change. The result – time, energy, and money – wasted. In today’s economy, can you afford the cost of unsuccessful change? Successful, sustainable change only happens when the people in your organization are willing, able, and ready to do the activities needed to make the change real. We’ll show you how to raise the level of readiness in your organization so “resistance to change” doesn’t become part of your vocabulary.
Our change management methodology gives you the tools you need to be successful. It can:
- Prevent almost all resistance that is currently experienced in most organizational change initiatives which negatively affects your company’s productivity, morale and culture.
- Increase organizational change capacity so your corporation is readily adept at handling future change initiatives.
- Decrease stress and increase productivity during the transition with the goal of providing the least amount of disruption possible to service, your customers or stakeholders.
The recent election of the first African-American president of the United States was an unprecedented event in world history and something that many people never thought they’d live to see. Why did it happen? Because each individual involved, from the top down, believed in change, and were committed to doing whatever needed to be done to see it realized.
Successful organizational change is no different. It too requires that every individual be committed to doing whatever is required to succeed. Building this level of commitment in your organization requires you to be clearly focused on your intended outcome and making the time to ensure your people are ready.
You need to be the “Barack Obama” of your organization. In today’s volatile global economy, your bottom line depends on it.
