Change defined the past year of living and working through the pandemic. Our daily lives were completely disrupted and organizations had to rethink and reshape work practices across all business operations. At this point, we are all experienced with change, particularly unexpected and wide-scale change. However, this is not enough to say that we are change-ready. It is no longer sufficient to respond to change—we must expect that the coming years will be characterized by change at every level and be prepared to change and thrive with the times.

Change readiness is more than a mindset where we accept and adapt to the pace of change.  Change readiness means thinking through the potential implications any large-scale change has for individuals, organizations, and society at large. At WLH, we have worked with organizations through change and studied the characteristics of success for over thirty years. From this experience, we have created our Change and Thrive blended learning solution that readies leaders to deal with change at the organizational, team, and individual levels.

Listen to this podcast to learn how our approach is key to ensuring that goals and skills cascade throughout the entire business. Broadly speaking, we start with the organization to ensure that it has developed a well-thought-out plan that accounts for risks and rewards. Next, we share the importance of leaders to guide their teams through ongoing change.  Lastly, we work with individuals to ensure they can relate their role to these broad goals, as well as accurately assessing their own change-readiness. Individuals are the backbone of any successful organization and they must be open to an honest assessment of how they react to organizational change, as well as their willingness to commit to change goals.
