Strategies for building resiliency in your organization Understand the organizations approach to change and understand how constantchange has an effect on your people. A few things to consider: Does your organization: Develop specific, actionable plans and strategies and consider the human impact of change or is your organization continually running behind the curve and just trying to keep up? Does your organization: Recognize that individuals and teams are in different places regarding change/failures/projects? (e.g. Those closest to change will be well in advance of those who are just getting brought on board) Does your organization: Have consistent and transparent messaging around its initiative, especially those which require adaptability? Does your organization: Actively coach, mentor, and develop its talent and monitor progress and engagement? Copyright Linkage. All rights reserved. www.linkageinc.com23 25.
