Copy of Terrain Transitions

Terrain Transitions

Leading change can be like hiking rough terrain transitions. Successful change requires leaders to explain the why for the change and not only the what. Many times there are misunderstandings regarding change in the workplace when leaders have not made the reason for the change clear. First, build trust with your team by investing time for discussion on transitions prior to implementation. Typically, individuals resist and avoid change due to fear, uncertainty, or loss of control.

After much communication and open conversations with the team, then leaders can share their vision as it aligns with the culture of the organization. This communication must be coupled with engagement and consistent team collaboration. Your team will need to process and evaluate the benefits of the proposed change in order to get on board with commitment. Remember the 3 Cs of terrain transitions: communicate, collaborate, and commit.
