Humans fear change. It disrupts our patterns of life, plays havoc with everyday processes, and sometimes leads to job losses. Nevertheless, business leaders must find a way to drag their workers into the future. So how to achieve that? Change management is “part art, part science,” says Mike Bentley, a human capital leader with Deloitte. On this episode, he talks about how to gain the trust of staff members and head off potential opposition to change, both overt and covert. Motivation is a key factor – but what form should it take? How does one build a path to effective organizational change, in a world where change is a constant, but constantly opposed by human nature? What the qualities of a good leader in a change initiative? And how does one battle “change fatigue”? Hosted by Bob Bowman, Managing Editor of SupplyChainBrain.
