Leadership Strategies For The Four Stages Of Change: Moving Your Employees to Commitment

This ebook will cover leadership strategies for the four stages of change: moving your employees to commitment.

Let’s say you’re in a meeting with twenty of your colleagues at work, and the CEO walks into the meeting and announces, “Beginning tomorrow, there are going to be some big changes around here. I won’t be able to give you the details right now, but tomorrow, same place, same time.” He then turns around and walks out.

What thoughts would be going through your mind over the next twenty-four hours? The next day, there you are and the boss walks into the meeting. He says, “Remember the changes I mentioned yesterday? Here’s what they are. Beginning today we’re going to change the colors of all the office walls from white to beige.”

If you’re like most people, you’d probably shake your head and look very confused, but heave a large sigh of relief, because you assumed that those big changes would be negative. This natural tendency of people to assume the worst is at the core of why leading group change can be so challenging. Let’s start by taking a look at why change is so stressful.

Why Change Equals Stress

We know intellectually that change is necessary. It’s constant. It’s inevitable. We all know that in our minds, but most employees don’t just sail through change. You probably don’t either.
