The human brain is generally wired to be wary of change. It’s a survival instinct. We usually adapt to change because we have to, not because we want to or like it.
Obviously that’s a potential problem in many organisations, when going through a relentless barrage of change! Staff managers and executives alike are almost universally inundated with the amount and pace of change. It’s a real challenge, and can impact heavily on employee engagement and service delivery.
We’ve partnered with several organisations in the public and private sector to help them with their rapid and ongoing change.
