A brilliant strategy can do wonders for setting organizations apart from the rest in the increasingly competitive business landscape. However, only solid execution of that strategy will keep organizations at the top. And the sad fact is, multitudes of companies struggle with implementation and rollout of strategy due to the unavoidable structural changes or reorganization that comes with execution.
How can an organization gracefully change with change? What does it take to rally employees behind a unique strategy and get them onboard with the changes that will lead their organization into the future? It starts with making the change about the people!
The ultimate goal for your strategy and initiative is alignment. This calls for your employees to accept a change in how they must think, a change in how they must act, and to see the importance and acceptance of the greater good of the strategy. But to do that, they need to see how they fit into the equation. And what is the best way to do that? Experiential learning!
The secret and success of experiential or discovery learning is that the learning happens when you don’t realize it! Experiential learning immerses people in situations that mimic the complexities of the real world, challenging them to take risks and make mistakes, but without real life consequences. Once the context is created for the participants to tap into their own abilities, training is no longer something you do to employees; it’s something employees do for themselves.
People learn best when they are actively involved in the learning process. It accelerates knowledge and skill acquisition and ensures long-term retention. It’s engaging, impactful, and most importantly, fun. Who wouldn’t want training like that to immerse in the strategy and change of the organization?
It’s important to note that organizational change is almost certainly guaranteed, but how the change happens and if it’s successful is not. So why not put the training in place to make your organizational change a smooth transition into growth and productivity? It starts with experiential learning and it starts with you.
