Why am I frustrated? It feels like I am not getting anything done? Obstacles everywhere I turn! Lots of turnover in staff. Another new Director! Another set of processes! Another new application, site, repository! Change is the only constant! AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
Does this sound like your employees? Do you see frustration on their faces? Is your organization going through a lot of change? Every successful company morphs over time as they grow and expand. It is inevitable if you want to stay on the cutting edge of your business, but lots of change in a short window of time can put a chink the armor of your staff.
The last two companies that I worked with went through really big change, system migrations, application upgrades, security upheavals, new processes, new URLs, new staff, new rules, all while trying to conduct day-to-day business. I thought I was going to lose my mind!
The company growth expanded so quickly, which is a success story in and of itself, however lots of change needed to be made to keep up with this ever-growing success story. I understood that, but I was really confused about what we were doing and why we were doing it so quickly. And were we expected to keep the train chugging along at the same speed while the rails were being laid?
It can be done in an organized-chaos with lots of communication! Setting proper expectations. Explaining why the organization needs to make the changes being implemented. Employees need to understand the value, the benefits, the outcomes of the chaos. Change truly is the only constant in business and in life.
