The best change always comes naturally, when people start moving as one. If you understand the change capacity of your team or organization and trust the potential of people, successful change emerges. Then people automatically start moving, based on a shared ambition. That is more effective, faster and more fun than change that is ‘managed’.
The workshop Effortless Change provides you with insights and inspiration that help you to see and harness the unique potential of your organization. Through compelling insights and cases we provide you with the knowledge to build an organization that changes naturally – agile, resilient and full of energy. This workshop helps you and your management team on your journey of discovery into what your organization needs and how you can contribute to it.
The workshop will be tailored to your team’s questions and needs. It will be programmed during one or two sessions, each lasting approximately four hours. There is plenty of interaction and working with cases to gain practical understanding of the dynamics of effortless change. The main topics that we will deal with are as follows:
1. What is the nature of change?
And what is you, as manager can actually control? You will gain understanding of the change capacity that every organization has intrinsically. This section leads to an understanding of what Effortless Change actually is – and why every organization should strive fo it.
2. Finding the sweetspot of effortless change
Here we discuss the characteristics of organizations that are able to change effortlessly. What are the building blocks? Understanding effortless change cannot occur without understanding frictions that inhibit change. What are the most common frictions that hinder individuals, teams or even entire organizations to change effectively?
3. The role of management
Choosing for effortless change means that management will take a different role. It will shift from traditional ‘direct and control’ to a role that is focused on bringing and keeping people together. Inspire change, facilitate people and build trust. These are the foundational principles for management in modern organizations.
4. Bringing it all together
Now that we have an understanding of the principles of change, the dynamics of organizations that change effortlessly and the new role of management: how does organization bring this into practice? How will you find your sweetspot for effective change? The basic premise of Effortless Change is that each and every organization and its management has their particular capacity to change. Although we can apply models and processes to bring change about, they are not the answer to your challengs. As we will come to see, that answer always lies within your people and their relationships.
