Why Employees Resist Change

These are a few initial responses you may experience when you announce an organizational change to employees. You will be better able to change employees' attitudes and turn their resistance into cooperation, once you understand why some are resisting change.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 23, 2014 7:16 PM

When people resist, we see that as problematic. In fact, it might be just what we need at times and maybe a lot of the time. Resisting, questioning, and challenging should be part of the conversation. I experienced a lot of compliance and conformity in School where someone external to my classroom often set the goals for my classroom. It was very unpopular when I spoke up and questioned, resisted, and challenged.

Daniel Watson's curator insight, July 20, 2014 4:07 AM


Far too many small business owners, operate their businesses without ever preparing a business plan, and this missing link is often the chief reason they do not achieve their desired levels of success.


A business plan is not all that difficult to create, yet many business owners avoid the task, often because they are aware that a well prepared plan can expose gaps of many kinds that cannot always be ignored.


This excellent article, suggests that a business plan clearly identifies how much work lies ahead for a business to succeed in its chosen endeavour and provides a prioritised map of the path to follow, and it offers a six question approach that will provide all the answers needed to help a business owner to prepare a simple business plan.

7 Leadership Qualities You May Not Know You Have

7 Leadership Qualities You May Not Know You Have | Management | Scoop.it

What does it take to be a great leader?

 

Once upon a time, birth order and socioeconomic status were considered powerful determinants in who would successfully climb the ladder.

 

Lately, though, the focus has shifted to personal qualities.

Guiding vision, passion, and integrity are well known leadership traits. But there are lesser known leadership traits, as well--in fact, some historically have been perceived as weaknesses.

 

These hidden traits can be developed and nurtured to help further your career and your role as a leader, at work, in your community, or in life in general.

 

See if you just might have some or all of these personal qualities that lend well to leadership:

How to Lead Strategic Change Without Inciting a Mutiny - INSEAD

How to Lead Strategic Change Without Inciting a Mutiny - INSEAD | Management | Scoop.it

Much has been written about how new CEOs - the “corporate saviours” – influence the early stages of leading strategic change, but the reality is deep-rooted change frequently fails as a result of subsequent implementation problems across the organisation. In the paper From Support to Mutiny: Shifting Legitimacy Judgments and Emotional Reactions: Impacting the Implementation of Radical Change written with co-authors Kevin Corley and Matthew Kraatz, we look at middle managers’ role in a massive company restructuring and how their shifting, often judgmental and emotion-laden relationship with top management is a critical factor in the success of the strategic change process.

Develop the squeezed middle: Once a business grows and a middle management tier emerges, these are the people who can make or break growth. They are submerged by the instructions from above and the demands from below and unless their skills are developed, the culture is collaborative and the direction clear, they will drown. Identifying the skill and personal development needs of these individuals to help them become future leaders can catapult your capacity to a new level.

Nothing is more constant than change. Furthermore, the speed of change is accelerating.

Thus, new realities for innovation management are emerging and firms are forced to change their innovation management ever faster. A large study from 2013 showed that only 1 in 2 major change programs succeed. In this 2-part article series, innovation-3’s Frank Mattes shares his deep experience in designing and implementing innovation culture change initiatives.

This schematic history of human civilization reflects a growing complexity of the collective behavior of human organizations. Some will see in the graphics what intuitively seems correct, namely that areas of grey an lateral connections matter increasingly more:

"The internal structure of organizations changed and is changing, whether this is built in formally or not.  Going from the large branching ratio hierarchies of ancient civilizations, through decreasing branching ratios of massive hierarchical bureaucracies, to hybrid systems where lateral connections appear to be more important than the hierarchy."


Without new means to connect these groups the isolation and silos make it impossible to overcome local optimums:


"As the importance of lateral interactions increases, the boundaries between subsystems become porous. The increasing collective complexity also is manifest in the increasing specialization and diversity of professions."

A New Way to Look at Well-Being

A New Way to Look at Well-Being | Management | Scoop.it

After six years of measuring and reporting on well-being and health in the U.S., Gallup and Healthways in January 2014 decided to propel the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index to the next level. In short, we’ve given the way we measure well-being a thorough makeover. The updated survey reflects countless hours of research conducted by Gallup and Healthways experts to advance the science of well-being. This research increases the power and scope of the Well-Being Index, which now predicts more key health and business outcomes and provides more actionable insights to leaders and individuals than ever before.

The revamped survey includes 27 brand new questions on everything from perceptions of physical appearance to weekly alcohol consumption; from having an inspiring leader to time spent taking vacations with loved ones. We delve into community pride and financial worry as well.

Top 7 Traits of Star Employees

Top 7 Traits of Star Employees | Management | Scoop.it

If you're on the hunt for a new position that will let you shine, practice demonstrating these top seven traits that CEOs look for in star employees.

 

Your resume can get you the interview. But these traits can get you hired:

1. Happiness

No one wants to work with an unhappy person. Negativity, unnecessary drama, and melancholy attitudes can bring the entire company down, so although your own personal happiness may not seem important when applying for a job, it most certainly is. Happiness also reflects your ability to tackle challenges without becoming discouraged. If you show the hiring CEO that you're a positive, mentally healthy person, your chances of becoming the company's next star employee will vastly improve.
