Robot workers, freelance and sharing economies, mobile workplaces – how should companies engage with these and other major trends? Talent Bureau represents the best change management experts who speak on the top processes and tools for change management in the workplace.
Life is change. Consider that you change every time you move, you age every second that passes by. Change can come quickly; a new job, a new house, a new partner. It can come slowly, the almost imperceptible shifts in personality and thinking that mark our lives, only noticeable in hindsight, when you realize “I’m a different person, now”. Change must be embraced, for as long as we are changing, we are alive; it only stops when we are gone from this world, and even then it shifts, as those who remember us change too.
Change management, then, is not about stopping change, nor is it just about making change more palatable. True change management involves the entire organization; it must be a shift in consciousness, a radical embrace of the inevitability of change as a sign of growth and development. Managing change isn’t just about metrics; it’s about mental health, fortitude, creativity and curiosity. Adopting the right mindset about change can alter anyone’s life in an extremely positive way; events that once seemed turbulent will instead be seen as a positive change in your life.
Robots and automation are threatening jobs? No, they’re simply creating new niches for people to explore, new markets that can be won by hard-working individuals; automation is an opportunity, not a threat. Property is getting more expensive, and you can’t move into the office you’d like to? An incredible possibility is arranging for more work-from-home and teleconferencing to leverage existing infrastructure. The Internet has neutered the ability for big box stores to make money? Consider making your space a place where events happen, selling online, and advertising through social media. Change management is about managing perspective and expectation; when something looks like a negative, creative thinking and positive engagement turn it into an opportunity.
