Life is all about change. We change the little things—our hairstyle, our clothing, our eating, even our waking-up hour—all the time. We change big things—partner, job, health, city we live in—less often but with no less upheaval. But how do people manage to change their work?
It can be difficult. There are lots of roadblocks—and typically lots of people—who might be resistant or even hostile to change. But change can bring about some real successes to business, especially if it’s approached in a positive way.
Part of that positivity comes from the way management approaches change. If they hide goals or approaches, they are more likely to fail. If, however, management objectively evaluates change and is transparent about certain aspects, then change is more likely to have a positive spin, especially for employees.
Luckily change for business doesn’t have to be difficult or hard to grasp. There are certain principles that can guide the way. This thoughtful yet succinct infographic outlines what to understand and what to pursue on the path to change for your business.
