Making Lasting Change Happen for Your Company

In today’s fast paced, global marketplace, where customers and businesses are more integrated and connected than at any time in history, organizational change, which is tied to the way we work together, is inevitable. Most companies struggle to put it into action, which continues to present an even greater challenge as organizational change has become more of an on-going norm than a one-time event. 

When companies have not properly prepared for change - by embracing a new mindset, encouraging the heart and modeling cultural values that sustain change - the change initiative will fail even before it gets off the ground.

  • Will your company be one of the 70% that fail in their organizational change vision?
  • Or will change drive your business forward, like IBM, GE, Apple, and Google?

Organizational change may be enforced because of regulatory change, required because of structural change (for example, in the case of a merger), or merited because of changing customer needs and demographics. Whatever the reason for the change, you’ll want to benefit from the knowledge and expertise of an HR consulting firm that specializes in jumpstarting change initiatives.

Identifying and preparing your change leaders

It takes a special leader to create the environment for successful change. He or she will motivate, inspire, and be insightful. As an experienced HR consulting firm in New Jersey that deals specifically in the science of change management, Forward Focus understands the importance of creating and maintaining the momentum for change.

We work in partnership with our clients, through an assessment of opportunity and risk that enables the co-creation of an innovative blueprint for strategic change. Together we’ll identify your potential change leaders: those people who will lead from the front, exhibit new behavioral requirements, and support individuals and teams through the difficult phases of organizational change. These potential change leaders will benefit from:

  • Focused executive coaching
  • A greater understanding of their role and responsibilities
  • An increase in the breadth and depth of leadership skills
  • Tools and tips to galvanize high performance teams

Change begets change

With your leaders now honed in on their change leadership skills, you’ll see a transformational effect in your organization. They will fast become the facilitators of change, identifying opportunities for improvement and advancement in products, processes, and services.

These new change leaders will think outside the box, embrace a generative mindset, and bring the rest of the organization with them by encouraging their people to do the same. Soon everyone will see themselves as stakeholders in the continuous organizational change and improvement. The new culture of change is jumpstarted through your collaboration with our HR consulting firm.

Ask yourself these two questions:

  • In the fast-paced modern economic environment, can you afford not to change?
