According to the Harvard Business Review, 70% of all change initiatives fail. I combine the latest psychological research with my own expertise to help make sure you are not part of this statistic. I can advise you on culture change, mergers & acquisitions and leading through change.
Mergers & Acquisitions
Mergers & acquisitions are a time of transition that if managed badly can result in a huge range of problems. Employees sense of identify can be threatened by an acquisition to such an extent that they either choose to leave or struggle to feel a part of the newly merged organisation. Many acquiring companies lose hugely talented people as a result of the way they manage the change.
What we offer:
I can work with you before, during or post the transition
Pre-merger to undertake an analysis of the culture of each organisation, identify possible clashes that may arise and steps we can take to mitigate them.
During the merger to advise you on how to design strategies that will engage your employees in the change process.
Post-merger to assess the effects of a merger or acquisition on your people and their sense of belonging and identification with the new organisation. I will advise you on how to address the issues so that the two organisations become one organisation with a strong culture.
Every organisation has its own unique culture made up of the history of the organisation, its underlying values and the way that people relate to each other on a day to day basis. Elements like this combine to become ‘the way we do things around here’. An organisation’s culture is often unspoken but has a wide-ranging effect. It can cause problems such as:
- Competing cultures within an organisation
- A culture that is toxic resulting in problems between employees or them voting with their feet and leaving
A culture no longer fit for its clients or strategy
What we offer:
- A variety of tools to uncover your organisation’s culture.
- Help to decide what culture you need to achieve your strategy and serve your clients
- Solution design to help start the process of culture change
- Support to carry on culture change over a longer period of time
Coaching for Change
I offer coaching to senior people as they lead their organisations through change. I can support your line managers and influencers so they become positive change agents who drive the change you seek.
