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 shift to moving your workforce to remote working, the 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, it’s important to know one key element about powerfully navigating unexpected change. Sudden significant change will automatically amplify your human 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.
Your human wiring is something you’re born with and dictates the type of environment in which you’re best equipped to thrive and succeed and the kind of environment you prefer to live and work. With the knowledge of someone’s wiring, you can recognize and appreciate what matters to them and how they need to receive their communication.
There will be individuals 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. You also have those wired for certainty. They 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 matter in effectively moving your organization ahead.
Different situations require different tools. When you increase your personal awareness of human wiring, you increase your communication effectiveness and lead with grace and ease regardless of the circumstances.
