With Atlas “go live” (our business management system conversion) just around the corner for us, it’s important for everyone to properly prepare for the change to come. With change, come many different emotions which may include apprehension, fear, anxiety, and uncertainty. It’s our job as leaders, to manage and embrace this change.


Three change management tips:


Manage Emotion: A leader creates the environment at the office. The attitude of the leader impacts the mood of others, which affects productivity and levels of engagement. It’s critical that we, as leaders remain positive throughout the entire change management process.


Communicate: Communicate consistently, frequently, and through multiple channels. It’s important for your direct reports to know what the change is, how it will impact them and what will be done to properly prepare for the change. Over-communicating always works best. Communicate all that is known about the changes, as quickly as the information is available. Provide significant amounts of time for people to ask questions, request clarification, and provide input so you can address them before the change occurs.


Employee Involvement: Even if employees cannot affect the overall decision about the change, it’s important to involve each employee in meaningful conversation and provide input. This will gain their buy in & build trust which is important.

Change is inevitable. As leaders, we need to be positive role model because how we handle change has a big impact on the outcome.
