The facts are set in stone. More than half of your efforts will end up in total, erratic failure: whether itís a downsize, relocation, new management or even a new CEO. Without a qualified leadership, your efforts will fall short of your desired goals.

Hereís why:

Solve your conflicts

People and conflicts are two peas in a pod. The companies you have worked with in the past that have always failed to embrace change are filled with too much political correctness. If you donít talk about your problems, then change is more likely to head in the direction of failure.

Always have your mind in the future. Your employees and managers will raise both their issues and fight to the death, screaming at each other to make their point clear. In the heat of the battle, keep in mind that you have to demonstrate how the problem is important to the customer, company, or personal relationships. Talking about your goals and the obstacles that are getting in the way will ease minds as your entire team works to solve any issue.

Remain enthusiastic

If you had to get up at 5 a.m., get everybody up, head out the door and walk around the block, would you? Ask this question to any leader in your life and 99 percent would say youíre crazy. Why? Itís really hard and what do they get out of it? Your employees feel the exact same way about work. And thatís why nothing is ever completed on time.

You have to create a sense of urgency for constant change so your people feel like if they donít keep going, they will be out of touch with the rest of the company. Here are some thoughts great leaders usually express.

ē Training for the next job
ē Providing for their family
ē Keep on working
ē Crushing the competition
ē Experiencing new things
ē Being a mentor
ē Bringing in more money
ē Improving your overall being
ē Always learning something new

Fight resistance

Great leaders believe in all of the above and still have enough energy to fight resistance. This isnít shocking. Change is scary for some. No one likes going through the whole process of learning a new routine after they worked so hard mastering the existing one.

Talk to your people about what stops change in its tracks. Great leaders who welcome change empathically listen to their workers daily experience. Rather than ruling with an iron fist, take the time to ask how you can meet your employeeís needs. Embrace their ideas, try them out, and itíll make them welcome change.

Lack of communication

There will always hurdles youíll face when it comes to conveying change. People have a tendency to fill the empty spaces with their own concocted versions. This is a worldwide problem when people experience fear. When change comes you must pay extra attention to how you communicate.

Always talk about change more than you think is acceptable. Your workers are usually overwhelmed with their projects and personal lives. Try to imagine yourself working for an ad agency promoting change. You must reach your ideal demographic. You have to market in every media channel, 110% of the time: TV, web, and in retail stores. Make it a spiritual, multi-angled approach to truly get your message stuck in the peopleís minds.

There you go. You now have on reason at all to be afraid of change. Your workers and business are depending on you. Use these tactics to smooth out any changes. And if you donít feel like this isnít enough, bookmark this site to help you manage your risk.
