We are in the midst of change. Personal, Organizational, Global.
This is different from any ordinary change process, in which you choose to change.
This is a change you have been pushed into.
For 12 years, we have been coaching and facilitating change processes in
start-ups, helping them evolve sometimes towards chosen vision and targets
and sometimes through unexpected change of circumstances.
So why was the coaching focused on immunity to change? Because change is constant.
It is part of growing. It will always be there.
What is key, is to build an organizational engine, that will be resilient to change.
What are some tips for doing that?
Tip 1: Productivity Strengths
Our first tip is to understand that high performing resilient teams must have both
high positivity and high productivity levels.
Productivity strengths describe the capacity to perform the function required by the
team, and Positivity Strengths describe the process and relationship
required to perform as a team.
Positivity is as mandatory to attend to as productivity.
And in times like this, when it is volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA),
positivity is threatened.
Thus, it is important to help each other stay optimistic, in trust, respect and
Tip 2: Be Aware
Second tip is to be aware that as humans, we become highly reactive
during change, especially when we were not prepared for it.
Behaviors that may show up include nervous laughter, freeze, communication
toxins, domination, confusion, withdrawal and more.
As leaders, however, we must learn the practice of shifting from being
reactive, to being pro-active.
We must learn not to focus our attention on outside circumstance but to refocus
internally and lean into our own resources.
We need to practice taking responsibility, make choices
facing any circumstances: we have a response-ability.
Tip 3: Notice What You Are Listening
Final tip is at times of external turmoil is: notice what you are listening to.
Active listening, means actively noticing whether you are listening to your internal
assumptions, distractions, fears, and such.
OR are you truly listening to what is actually being said by the person talking to you, and truly
perceiving what is happening around you, free of assumptions?
Ask yourself: “what is the level of listening that will serve me at a given moment?”
The good news is that :
Active Listening, the ability to shift your listening into a useful level, is a skill that can be learned.
When mastered, it becomes a life saver, and a critical factor to success during times of change.
