Working with companies to meet their emerging need - organizational design for flexibility and speed
Learning about organizational change is a journey. You are not the same person you were when you started your journey, nor are you the same person you will be when you complete your current learning objective. However, other than a few people, everyone else has a stereotype of you from when they first met you. If you do not apply what you are learning now, they will continue to see you the same way they always have and, in their eyes, you will not have changed.

What I believe about Organizational Change:
3 Essentials for Successful Org Change
Knowing what to change
– and what not to change
Differentiate change leadership and change management
– Ability to mandate vs. influence change
– Lead the vision for change
– Manage the change process
Knowing how to involve people
– Change enablement
The Change Management Academy is loosely associated with several org-change groups with a tilt toward novices. As a novice, you likely have little to no formal training in the theory and practice of organizational change. You hate “being changed” but now find yourself an “inadvertent change manager” – the department manager or project leader – forced to lead change or address resistance to meet your goals. Or you may be in HR and tasked with helping solve “people problems.”
The focus in this group is basic education for those new to organizational change. A safe place to ask any (dumb) questions because you do not know enough to ask the right questions. Mini-lectures will be provided (prioritized by the questions people are asking), along with links to other resources or services that may meet your needs where you currently are in your learning journey.
Overcome the Resistance that is Limiting Your Success
Manage resistance – or it will manage you
Critical Success Factors for Organizational Change:
Seek to understand dominant trends
Unbundle and re-bundle with craftsmanship and care
Establish some context for change
Influence without attempting to control
Determine whether change management or change leadership is needed
Emotion trumps logic
Use vision to establish some certainty
Decrease learning anxiety while increasing survival anxiety
Expect a performance dip
Organizations only change through collective change by individuals
Enable leadership at all levels
Change agents also need a mentor
Self-paced online courses
are designed to (1) provide learning that can be applied immediately while also (2) giving insight into what else may be needed to implement a successful change initiative. The list of courses is growing with development prioritized with input from consulting clients and students.
Argument for Change
• Change will occur, with or without your input.
• Better to influence what you can than take what others will give you.
