“The secret to business progress isn’t to stop change, it’s to start facilitating change much, much better. Change Fatigue is the field guide all leaders need to align their teams. Don’t change a thing before reading!” - Jay Baer, author of The Time to Win: How to Exceed Your Customers’ Need for Speed

Change is inevitable. Resistance to change is just as predictable.
How do you motivate teams to willingly get on board?
The pandemic and following uncertainty in the market left many knowledge workers burnt out and uninterested in going “above and beyond” in the workplace. But organizations must continue to evolve and change leaders can’t afford to postpone innovation indefinitely. Enter change management and facilitation strategies.
Everyone is exhausted. Change fatigue is real, and it makes sense, but change still has to happen. There"s no way around it: evolution - change - is a necessary function of every living thing, and organizations are no exception. If a team is not evolving, innovating, and showing value they will likely find themselves on the budgetary chopping block. The status quo is not a viable solution.
So, change has to happen. But we don’t have to accept that change has to be so exhausting.
Leaders need to account for how a change initiative actually impacts the people making the change. This means planning the right activities in the right order with the right people involved, well before announcing anything to the whole team. The authors provide a tactical roadmap, complete with online templates and tools, to allow teams to adopt and sustain change more reliably.
When leaders plan for change?including smaller changes?they reduce frustration and exhaustion, and get better outcomes.
