We often hide the truth of org change in order to protect our people from the ugly truth.
Did you know that this beautiful sentiment of employee care is actually counter-productive?
The truth is our people can handle it – and in fact, when we’re worried about putting too much on them, we could actually be asking them for more?
Gartner research shows that engaging staff in co-creating a change response actually increases their ability to absorb more change for longer, handle greater volume of change, apply more exertion to making the change, and deal with greater disruption due to the change.
Evidentially our people CAN handle the truth. In fact they already KNOW the truth – and probably have the solutions already, if we’d just ask them.
