Change Management

Managing change successfully

Change is no longer something that we can plan for years in advance. Organisations must be ready to adapt to anything that may come their way – at a moment’s notice. Leading through change successfully requires putting people at the heart of change and building a culture of resilience and agility. If your people are not constantly ready to adapt and embrace change, your company will simply be left behind.

The Future of Work is here – are you ready?

The future of work is not coming, it’s already here. The shift to online working or hybrid working models is just the first of many changes that organisations will face in the future of work. With a mixture of in-office and remote working, people must adapt to new ways of working and build new skill sets to thrive.

Why is change so hard?

People inherently process and react to change differently. From their preferred method of communication and ways of working to the way they process information – each person is unique. While some people naturally thrive during times of change, others will need more support from you and the chance to discuss objections.

Managing change successfully requires you to guide your people through times of uncertainty and ensure they feel valued, seen, and heard. Change can be overwhelming – especially when organisations are typically reacting; everyone is already on the back foot.

Thriving through Change: Resilience, Agility & Self Awareness

People development is the key to putting your people at the heart of change. By helping them increase their self-awareness, they can begin to better understand their preferences in the workplace, how they react and cope with change, and why others react differently. This is the foundation for building the resilience and agility required to embrace change and adapt to whatever comes next.

Our approach

We’ll work with you and your team to look at how people are differently affected by change and then move on to focus on how teams and leaders approach change.

As a result, you and your team will be able to:

  • Understand and manage your own reactions to change
  • Communicate better within teams and support cohesion and productivity during times of change
  • Understand and accept that everyone reacts and behaves differently according to their own preferences
  • Build resilience and agility
  • Cultivate a growth mindset
  • Adapt to ongoing change and transformation

How it works

This program is tailored to address your specific challenges and requirements as an organisation. It includes a combination of team diagnostics, team workshops and/or facilitated sessions which we can deliver in-person or virtually. Ongoing support will be provided to empower your managers to create a clear and actionable plan and then embed the changes into the organisation.

What Our Clients Are Saying

“Simon’s facilitation of the Colour Code was one of the most useful programs we have run with the team this year. He was able to personalise the program to assist us with remote communication vehicles such as email, zoom, teleconferences. Our team have gained a new mutual respect for each other’s colour strengths and weaknesses. Thoroughly recommend this program and Simon’s delivery.”

Frances Benge

CEO, Cure Kids, NZ

“Simon was a wonderful facilitator who gave us great insights into how we can develop self-awareness, as well as how we can improve our own personal effectiveness by knowing and understanding ourselves and others. We learnt and developed a common language through the insights colours to improve our team interactions and communication. Simon gave us practical tips which we could then implement into our day to day operations, allowing our insights learning and development to continue past the first session.”
