Leading a change process

Leading a Change Process.

Whilst the concept of Change Management has had many books and articles written on it for leaders aiming to implement change on a local level these can seem overly complex and ignore the fact that change is happening all around us every day in our personal and business lives. It might be considered therefore that the relevant questions to consider about change are as much to do with its ongoing effective management as with its implementation. If we see change as an inevitable part of our environment driven by the pressures on business then as leaders our role should be to develop a process to engage with people, gaining their confidence and trust to enable them to make the personal adjustments required to ensure smooth transitions.
