Continuous and constant change is the mantra for most organizations. Almost daily, leaders get information telling them about the need for their organization to be nimble, agile, and flexible. It’s true that change is necessary to stay relevant and successful. However, bombarding your organization with one change initiative after another, or worse, at the same time, is destructive. The launching of one change initiative after another is not making organizations more successful. Instead it’s led to failed change initiatives, cynical and disengaged employees, and change fatigue.

“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.
