Consulting: Symptoms & Problems
You have heard it all and seen it all
I am sure you heard employees (or managers) say:
Perhaps your employees:
- "… but we've always done it this way."
- "You just don't understand what you are asking us
- "There isn't enough time or money or information
to do this."
- "What you are asking us to do is unreasonable and
- Drag their feet when you are trying to get a change
project off the ground?
Let their energy and enthusiasm sag soon after the
change project has begun?
- Question interminably the specific change program
- Lose interest in the program once the newness
- Undermine the implementation efforts? And then,the
- Complain about the need for change?
These are common ways that employees express their resistance
to change. We can help you dissolve this very common barrier
to successful change in the workplace.
Examples of change efforts in organizations that often
benefit from efforts to reduce employees' resistance include
- Working Relationships and Conflict
- Motivation and Commitment (from Incentives to Inspiration)
- Personnel (Downsizing, Reassignments, Promotions)
- New Control Systems (Financial, Information, TQM,
MBO, Performance Evaluation)
- Organizational Structure
- Inter-departmental Relations
- Interpersonal Skills
- Learning Systems (WBT and Teleconferencing)
