Organizational change management operates at three levels – strategy, silo / stakeholder alignment, and most importantly the individual. Not everyone can move at the same speed so slow down to speed things up!
Alignment with stakeholders needs and their view of solutions requires better questions, demonstrated listening and finding out what you have in common.
Solution focused facilitation enables people to clarify their needs in a way that enables them to realize their outcomes – their way.
The narrative of change is often expressed in both visual and verbal terms.
It’s a cross-functional collaborative effort – always. It often includes the voice of stakeholders and customers. Key internal stakeholders (the silos) engage early on in the process to ensure engagement and buy-in as the process evolves.
A means to enable individuals and organizations to realize they know what they want, have the resources to make it happen and take action.
The organization clarifies what they do well, describes the problems (but, not enter into them!), and creates actionable and visible change. The organization focuses on purposeful change already under way and does more of it.
We are agnostic about organizations we work with. However, we have done quite a bit of work in Canada, the US, UK and Europe in financial services, industrial, consumer goods, non-profit, social services, media, education, food services, technology and telecom.
Traditional research reveals useful, but one-dimensional information. We bring the customer and cross-functional client teams together to be asked better questions, to listen and learn, then take action.
It’s our job to help them figure out what they want to be better. Our first question is often, ‘What does not need to change?’
Competing for business makes for quality delivery. We don’t believe the RFP process necessarily gets quality results for our client’s complex needs. After all, how can they leverage change proposals when the project likely evolves the minute they start working on it.
Our clients are the SME in their business. We’re recognized as SME’s in helping them facilitate the change they want.
Clients notice the better questions they answer quickly begin to dissolve internal obstacles. Our client silos are always involved in our proposal development process.
Our clients ask better questions of their customers, listen more acutely and take action.
As soon as clients answer our first questions; ‘What doesn’t need to change? And, ‘What does success look like?’
Executives, senior managers, executive directors, boards. marketers, HR people, owners, volunteers.
