Change Is Unpredictable – But Is It Manageable?

When facing change, people’s reactions are driven by how they perceive or understand how the change may affect them. False perceptions and lack of understanding may adversely affect their buy-in to change. If  buy-in doesn’t exist, they won’t be motivated or engaged to accept and adapt to the change. Reactions to change aren’t always predictable, but are they manageable? Without a doubt, the answer is yes, but it takes some effort. Be open, communicate, and coach and mentor those affected by the change. It’s only the first step to managing change, but a critical one. If the sailors aren’t on board, the ship won’t sail.
