Only one in three change management initiatives succeed. Most fail because they approach change as if it was an organizational characteristic. But change is a deeply human process.
Organizations who achieve long-lasting results are those that recognize change is a learning process – people learning to work differently or learning to do different work.
The more people are involved with, understand, and embrace your organizational purpose, your reasons to change and what you hope to achieve, the more they will opt to take personal ownership for the future of your organization. Sustainable change happens when you build a learning culture that puts people first and gives them a voice and the skills to learn and innovate. People own what they create - if they are involved in creating the culture, it will thrive.
