The rate and amount of change requires people and companies to change and adapt continuously. Change mastery results in faster and higher quality execution of strategy, significant cost savings through waste reduction, seizing first mover advantage where appropriate, greater employee engagement and high performance. Human Dynamics can help in the following areas:
- Acting in small doses over time as a catalyst for change in your company or organisation
- Bringing together stakeholders and different groups where a shared commitment to change is needed
- Mobilising a consensus on the direction and need for change to save wasted energy and resources later on
- Helping you makeover worn out business models and processes in ways that your people are able and willing to use
- Accelerating change by acting as an external troubleshooter / agent provocateur to turn a business round
- Providing masterclasses and keynote addresses on leadership and the execution of change
- Providing executive coaching to change agents so that they may lever change internally
Case Study: Making mergers work
Our client was a specialist team within the pharmaceutical company GSK. The team had come together from different areas of the company and there were different sub-cultures arising from the different organisations resulting in low levels of co-operation and avoidance of contentious issues around integration of work and projects. This resulted in wasted effort, in-fighting and other 'toxic' behaviours which threatened the group's viability and ultimately its contribution to the company.
The client requirement
To rapidly reform the team, by finding zones of collaboration and building a climate of trust.
What we did
We designed and facilitated tailored team development events in partnership with the team. This explicitly addressed the question of cultural differences in a positive way and answered the question as to what advantages there were in working as a team of specialists, both practically and emotionally. It also put an end to many of the toxic behaviours that led over time to more effective team performance.
