Vampires attack on change – a leadership express halloween special
‘its not that people don’t like change they don’t like uncertainty’…. Vampires in your orgainisation will drain the life out of your change process using the fangs of uncertainty.
Below is some things to think about with your Stakeholders to beat the Vampires!
V- Vision, have a clear vision of what it will be like after the change and talk about this often
A- Acknowledge the past –What was right and what is wrong
M- Mediums of communication – Leaders and managers need to have many ways of communication e.g. face to face,in groups, regular 1:1’s, listening sessions. It has to be two way and actions must be taking on the back of this;then communicated. N.B. Vamps love change emails so use them sparingly
P- Process of change – ensure you communicate why it is happening, what will happen,when it will happen, how it will happen, who needs to do what, where it will happen
I- Increments of change – break down the change into small chunks then it won’t feel so scary
R- Recognition of the efforts of colleagues in the change process as you go along
E- Energy – leaders and managers should ensure that their energy and drive for the change is positive and help things to keep moving
