Change Management using E.I.
I recall delivering a workshop 2 years ago where we touched on the amount of change that is happening in our current environment. A man from the audience asked me “Hasn’t change always been around, Amy?”. Yes, change has always been around however the size and extent of the change has increased dramatically due to the amazing technology that we have today. The majority of change in the past might have been a small change to the step in a process and major changes were the minority.
Some of our most common fears are ‘fear of the unknown’ and ‘fear of loss of control’. Change challenges both of these fears as we take ourselves out of our comfort zone, learn new ways of doing things and at times, rewire our brain relating to our actions, emotional drivers and outcomes.
The most effective way to implement change or to support others going through change, is to leverage our E.I. skills to understand what each person’s emotional driver is and at what stage of the mindset disrupt process they are at. Change is only effective when people buy in to the change and own it in their subconscious mind.
The mindset disrupt process is made up of 5 parts: Own It, Face It, Feel It, Ask It and Drive It. These also happen to be the 5 factors of E.I. When any change or unexpected circumstance occurs, our mind moves through these 5 parts with the speed differing for each person. Some people can move through the parts in a matter of hours where others might take months or may struggle to ever make it to part 5. Others might find themselves being pulled back to earlier parts due to self-doubt or a new occurrence.
Let’s focus on the 3 steps to implementing change that helps us to own it in our subconscious mind.
Change will always be here and it will continue to grow and challenge the way our mind works. If we, or others, are finding it difficult to accept any change, there is a disconnect between the change and our emotional drivers.
Hit pause and realign the purpose, the ‘why’ and communicate through information.
