people generally feel safe in the status quo. we are predisposed to resist change.
Our change management services support your team as they negotiate their change journey; and we know how challenging that can be. We know that people generally feel safe in the status quo, and are pre-disposed to resist change: a natural survival instinct, which dates back to our caveman ancestry.
We also know that if we provide clear and timely information, engage employees through participation, allow autonomy, and ensure a supportive culture is in place, then your change has every chance of success.
When we need to change, it can be hard to know how to do it effectively, especially when it involves change for others. You may wonder how to make new expectations and behaviours stick in your team. And you need to ensure business is unaffected while changes occur. At the same time, you have other priorities demanding your attention.
At Babel Projects, we listen carefully to understand the complexities of the change needed and the desired outcomes. We partner with you to develop a bespoke change process that’s right for your business. We excel in taking away the stress and providing expertise on culture change mechanisms and behaviour change theories: evidence-based models and processes that have been proven to work. We predict where resistance to change may occur and work with you to overcome it.
If you need to put change into action, we can help your workplace change for the better.
