Give Change a Chance

http://blogs-images.forbes.com/erikaandersen/files/2012/08/change-same.jpg

It is not the strongest nor the most intelligent of the species that survives; it is the one that is most adaptive to change - Charles Darwin

Six months following the end of a change initiative what percentage of the people in your company or organization: 

  1. Continue to do it?
  2. Have internalized it so that it has become a habit?
  3. Enthusiastically speak its praises and spread the word to people within and outside your organization?

If it is less than 80 %, you might want to check your means for ensuring: 

  1. "Buy in" at the beginning
  2. Follow through
  3. Sustaining follow through
  4. Sustaining enthusiasm for the change as shown by sharing it with others

A hint for ensuring these items is to recognize that people don't do what's important to them, they do what they care about (many people believe eating healthily is important, but just don't care enough about it to do it).  If you are attempting any change initiative, make sure that it causes people to care enough to "buy in," follow through, sustain the change and sustain their enthusiasm for that change.

If any of this speaks to you, Heartfelt Leadership has developed proprietary paradigm shifting methods from their many years in corporate America to training FBI/police hostage negotiators that result in causing people to care enough at each of these pivotal times to give change a chance.
