Do people in your organization need to collaborate within their home team but increasingly also with a wide range of other stakeholders? Then, the challenge for your leaders is to empower, encourage and motivate people for collaboration, whilst having less functional authority.

Even if it sounds like a bitter and cynical Dilbert joke: people are the hidden and underutilized resource of organizations. Why is it that only 20% of employees fully engage for their employer’s goals? You know the answer, don’t you? Good or bad leadership makes the significant difference between organizations that perform and those that don’t. It is as simple as that.

THE POWER OF CHANGE AND THE CHANGE OF POWER
The Change Journey is a radical approach to change. It is based on the paradigm that change in organizations is not a linear path from A to B. As many of us experience, what happens in a change process is largely unpredictable. Our Change Journey Map then helps you to navigate through uncertainty.
