Episode 11: 4 Steps to Tough Organizational Change

In my professional career, I’ve made a ton of mistakes. Heck, in life I’ve made a ton… and today’s teaching will reflect and help you with decision making in both your personal and professional life.

Today’s teaching focused primarily on “leading through tough organizational change”.

AS LONG AS you lean in and apply what you learn – then this should provide a lot of value for you. Because we know that knowledge is only valuable if we use it…

So let’s dive in… tough organizational change…

Do you have to fire someone? Maybe it’s a family member, good friend or a long-time, now underperforming employee?

Do you need to shut down a portion of your operation and are having a hard time developing strategic communication around that?

Are you a new leader and are dragging your feet on some effective changes you need to make in order to reach your goals?

I can empathize. This year, I’ve had to:

  • Let go of my brother, who was our kitchen manager
  • Part ways with my best friend, who was a manager in the company
  • Shut own our original kitchen and let go of 6 employees (we got them jobs within a week)
  • Part ways with my business partner
  • Deal with a software crash in our busy season

And these are just a few of the things that, as a company, and as a leader, I have had to navigate through…

Jim Stockdale said:

“You must never confuse faith that you will prevail in the end – which you can never afford to lose – with the discipline to confront the most brutal facts of your current reality, whatever they may be”

  1. Face the facts and forget your feelings

Especially in the small business sector, or when leading small teams, it is easy to get close to the people around you… as you should.

  1. Talk to a professional and/or mentor

Never assume that just because you’ve made your decision, that it is always the right one. Seek out a professional in your space, a mentor, or someone who has been in a similar situation

  1. Prepare

Take practical steps towards making the change:

  • Prepare how you will initiate and execute the change.
  • Prepare for how this change will affect your organization
  • Prepare how you will communicate the change, and why.
  1. Execute immediately

Too many people spend time in the waiting stage, hoping for another sign that this is the right decision.

 

4 QUESTIONS:

  1. What changes are you pushing off, that you know you need to make, but one of these reasons is holding you back?
  2. Who do you need to seek out?
  3. How are you going to prepare?
  4. When will you execute?
