  • Topics

    Manage expectations and reality

    This helps employees set appropriate expectations for dealing with the challenges of change. Rather than ignoring the effects of change, provide employees with the tools and skills to be successful, then hold them accountable for using them.

    Celebrate inconspicuous success

    During times of change, productivity drops are unavoidable. Manage the depth and duration of these drops by helping employees create and celebrate short-term successes which will lead to long-term organizational success.

    Communicate, communicate, communicate

    A proper amount of communication is needed in order [something]. The correct amount of information and frequency and communication of the messages help ease the period where employees need for information is the greatest and management's ability to provide the information is the weakest.

    Take more personal responsibility for results

    Focus your energy on the things within your control and produce tangible results, rather than react poorly, place blame, point fingers and make excuses in the name of the boss, bureaucracy or other factors over which there is little or no immediate control.
