Change. The word alone can trigger an emotional response. Some people thrive on change, others resist it, and others fall somewhere in between. When dealing with organizational change leaders not only need to consider individual responses to change, but there are also organizational challenges to contend with. Structure, roles, workloads, business models, and culture may be impacted. The implications span across an organization making execution and implementation challenging. It is no wonder that the vast majority of change efforts fail.

However, there are many approaches leaders can take to achieve successful outcomes.
