When Leaders Introduce ChangeSep 06, 2020
Written by Roxanne Brown
When leaders introduce change employees pay more attention to the words and actions of the leaders and influencers in the company. That’s because they’re trying to make sense of what’s happening and understand how they can be successful in this new situation.
They’re evaluating these things…
- Are we really changing or is this a temporary focus?
- Are all of the leaders on board with this?
- What does my manager expect of me now? Does that match what their boss wants?
- Do I have more or less value with this change?
- How much work is this going to be for me? For my team?
- What choices do I have?
As a leader you can think this through before you introduce change. Even if you spend 10 minutes on this you’ll get a more empathetic mindset so you can adjust your message.
Joy at Work is about trust, respect, belonging, cohesion, integrity, accountability, adaptability, growth, participation and commitment. It’s about helping employees focus on the work itself.
An empathetic mindset helps you grow Joy at Work when you introduce change.
