Change is Not Easy… It is important to understand how change affects the people in your organization. Change means letting go of something we are attached to. It triggers fear, anger, resentment and insecurity.
There are Three Phases of Dealing with Change Or How Change is Experienced: INDIVIDUAL PROCESS OF CHANGE Endings Neutral Zones Beginnings
INDIVIDUAL PROCESS OF CHANGE Endings: A period when people deal with the losses associated with change and learn more about the change. Neutral Zones: A period of ambiguity and confusion when people open up to the change and orient themselves to the new patterns of behavior. Beginnings: A period when people fully embrace the new patterns of behavior.
TRANSITION TRAPEZE In the 3 phases of transition, a person can move back and forth between the stages as feelings associated with the three stages emerge.

Leadership Strategies for Change Management Important leadership models speak to the role of leadership in reaching to people on an emotional level to inspire the behavioral and organizational cultural changes needed for a large scale system transformation. Two highly recognized models: Eight Step Process for Leading Change 5 Practices of Exemplary Leadership
8 Step Process for Leading Change John Kotter: Leading Change
STEP 1. CREATE URGENCY Kotter suggests that for change to be successful 75% of management needs to “buy into” the change. What can leaders do? 1. Start honest discussions 2. Identify potential threats 3. Request support
STEP 2: FORM A POWERFUL COALITION To lead change, you need to bring together a coalition of influential people What can leaders do? 1. Identify the leaders in your organization 2. Ask for emotional commitment 3. Work on team building 4. Check for weak areas
STEP 3: CREATE A VISION FOR CHANGE A clear vision helps everyone understand why you are asking them to do something. What can leaders do? 1. Determine values that are central to change 2. Create a strategy to execute the vision 3. Ensure change coalition can describe the vision in 5 minutes or less
STEP 4: COMMUNICATE THE VISION What you do with your vision after you create it determines your success “Walk the Talk” What can leaders do? 1. Talk often about the change vision 2. Openly and honestly address concerns and anxieties 3. Apply vision to all aspects of operations 4. Lead by example
STEP 5: REMOVE OBSTACLES Building buy-in from all levels of the organization Empowering people and helping the change move forward What can leaders do? 1. Identify the people resisting the change 2. Recognize and reward people for making change happen 3. Take action to quickly remove barriers
STEP6: CREATE SHORT TERM WINS Nothing motivates more than success What can leaders do: 1. Create short term targets that are achievable 2. Analyze potential pros and cons of your targets 3. Reward people who help meet the targets
STEP 7: BUILD ON THE CHANGE Kotter argues that many change projects fail because victory is declared too early What leaders can do? 1. After every win analyze what went right and what needs improving 2. Set goals to continue building on the momentum achieved
STEP 8: ANCHOR NEW APPROACHES IN THE CULTURE Make any change stick, it should become part of the core of your organization What leaders can do? 1. Talk about progress every chance you get. 2. Tell success stories about the change process 3. Publicly recognize key members of the original change coalition 4. Create plans to replace key leaders as they move on
