“You don’t do yoga.” That’s what I heard the yoga instructor say as he was telling me to raise my legs higher. “You’re right about that,” I thought as I fell into a heap on my yoga mat. “You don’t do yoga,” he said, “you practice yoga.” That’s when it hit me: it’s the same when it comes to organizational change. It’s not about doing change management. Change management, or rather change leadership, isn’t just another task on your to do list, nor should it be. Instead, it needs to be viewed as a component of your practice. In the same way lawyers or doctors don’t do law or medicine—they practice.

I remember a time when I only received two emails a day. It’s true. That’s because only two other people I knew also had email. And only a handful of people had a computer. Today, it’s hard to imagine being able to operate any type of organization without technology. Our reliance on information and other forms of technology is increasing. The complexity of this technology is also increasing. Therefore, knowing what you can do to increase the success of your information technology (IT) implementations and achieve your intended value is a business imperative.

Perseverance is one characteristic demonstrated by leaders who are able to create and sustain healthy organizational change. Before you launch any change, you need to ask one question: how will we (the leaders and managers) maintain our energy and perseverance to go the distance? Answering this question doesn’t mean pushing through a change at any cost. It means planning so that you have the energy and perseverance to support and enable employees to move as comfortably as possible through the full scope of the change process.

“We need to be constantly changing.”The need to be continuously evolving is a business necessity. The problem is most organizations are simply not set up for continuous change. Continuous change does not mean bombarding your employees with one change after another. This approach has led to a growing and costly problem—change fatigue.Change fatigue is associated with increased stress, exhaustion, and decreased organizational commitment. In my book “Launch Lead Live”, I outline the importance of commitment to the success of your change efforts. Left unchecked change fatigue leads to burn out, and burned out employees won’t contribute to your organization.Change fatigue can be described as passive resignation. It is this passive resignation that can make change fatigue more of problem than the “resistance to change” many leaders talk about.Why? Because change fatigue means that you have neither the energy to defend the current state nor the energy to move through a change process.

Every CEO I have met tells me they like change. They are enthusiastic and optimistic about the changes they have launched in their organization. Ironically, it can be this optimism and enthusiasm that increases the risk your change efforts will fail to achieve their desired result.

You have heard the statistics, 50-70% of organizational change initiatives fail. Your organization is facing big changes, and you don’t want it to become just another statistic. So, you decide this time it’s going to be different. You send your managers and leaders for change management training, adopt a change management methodology. You think, I’ve done my part. Now things will be different.
