Organizational change triggers individual transition. Transition is the psychological process all individuals go through when change occurs. Transition brings anxiety, conflict and turmoil to organizations. The leader’s ability to manage the process of transition is critical to achieving business results while retaining your best people. Building on the work of scholars like William Bridges and John Kotter, Ki ThoughtBridge equips leaders with the tools and processes needed to lead change and manage transition.
The absence of conflict is not a measure of team or organization effectiveness. Conflict is a necessary by-product of bringing any group of bright, committed, independent, creative thinkers together to solve a problem or achieve a goal.
A skill that every leader, especially those leading significant change, must have is the ability to engage others in dialogue. The leader who can create safe space in which open, honest communication is practiced, ultimately creates a cohesive community of increased trust, understanding, and shared meaning.
