Every organization carries out certain changes which they feel are needed for achieving the goals and aim of the organizations. Those changes are then carried regularly, and the evaluation of those changes or new strategies are carried out at equal intervals, and gradually it becomes the culture of our organization.
Keeping that culture into continuity is what becomes a responsibility and duty of not just of the organization but of its employees.
Steve Olsen defines the cultural change in the best manner, he says, “When an organization attempts a cultural change, it ends up becoming a cultural war, but don’t get discouraged, that cultural war is a good war!” Any change, no matter how big or small it may be, the changes take a while to show its results.
A change once brought needs to be continued always, and to maintain the continuity, the employees along with their organization need to become proactive in implementing those changes and continuing them. How can you help your organization in being proactive?
This Tuesday, we share some of the actionable pointers to be proactive:
Request for help: Every organization tries to bring about some strategic changes in their organization, but they are unaware of which strategic change is righteous for them. So rather than taking decisions on their own, it is better to request for help, from the people who are willing to help.
Find out the best fit: After getting help over the strategies, the next step that the organization should do is to get the best fit from all the alternatives. When a third party gives solutions, they give options, only the organization can decide, which technique fights best for their organization.
Reason with continuity: Any change in the first instance is never accepted by anyone, and even after the change is accepted, it is very important, to explain the organization as to why is it important to maintain continuity with those changes.
Simplicity at its best: When a change is being introduced, it is always better to keep the change simple. As everyone might not accept the change wholeheartedly, it is always better to keep those changes simple and less complicated so that it is accepted.
Encourage people: It is always not necessary that all the employees accept the change with the same enthusiasm. Many times it even happens that the employees might be against those changes, so it is always better that the organization should encourage the employees who are against the changes and help them see the benefit of the changes.
Openness is desirable: Every employee working in the organization works thinking it to be their own, and they have all the rights to know as to what is exactly happening in their organization. The organization should be open and transparent to their employees, as much as to the clients.
Being Creative: Every change needs to be different and creative, if the same change is followed in the same monotonous way, no one accepts it or shows it with the same enthusiasm. The change needs to be defined in a more creative and different way, that the employees look forward to the changes.
Be appreciative: The organization should appreciate the employees at an equal interval, to let them being acknowledged, and make them feel good, that the hard work of the employees is showing results. This will encourage the employees to work better.
Let us be proactive and build a culture of continual continuous in the organization to become more efficient and profitable.
Have a Transforming Tuesday!
