Managers typically focus on change management – getting to the end physical state as quickly as possible. In the process, they leave their employees behind. What managers fail to understand, and act on, is the nature of the personal transitions that individual employees experience during the change process. Understanding these personal transitions can contribute substantially to a successful change.
The pervading culture in your organization has developed over time and will persist in your work group unless you work actively to change it. What you focus on, pay attention to, and spend time on, communicates your values and influences work group culture. As a manager, you need to be consistent, congruent, persistent and resilient to change workplace culture.
