If there is one thing that is constant today, it is that the business landscape is in perpetual state of flux. Some changes can be more jarring than others, like the sudden passing of a key employee, the unexpected resignation of multiple employees, or the crash of your phone and computer systems right before a big launch of a new product.
As a leader, there’s one key element to keep in mind to powerfully navigate unexpected change. Change will automatically amplify your and your team’s natural wiring.
The reality is everyone’s unique mix of wiring is distinct. As a leader, you can skillfully and artfully navigate any kind of change with greater ease when you keep wiring in mind.
Wiring influences the type of environment in which a person is best equipped to thrive and succeed and the kind of environment they prefer to live and work. With the knowledge of someone’s wiring, you can better recognize and appreciate what matters to them when communicating with them.
There will be those naturally wired to put their thumbprint on the change and be concerned with the results or outcomes of the change. Others will want to be able to voice their concerns. Still others want to know the next steps and nurture those impacted by the change. Those wired for certainty want to know the who, what, where and whys of the change.
As a leader, how you show up and address each of these wiring needs can mean the difference between getting stuck in a rut or causing your team to skillfully navigate the change with grace. The words you choose, the methods of conveying the messages, and the pace at which you implement influence how effectively you move your team ahead.
Different situations require different tools. When you increase your personal awareness of human wiring (including your own), you discover a level of communication that makes a highly effective and lasting difference when navigating change.
