Change management 'should focus on three key areas'

11 October 2010

Effective change management strategies depend on managers' ability to focus on three key emotional areas, an expert has claimed.

In an article published in the Grapevine, Michael Haid declared attitude, self-management and relationship management to be the three "main pillars" that form the foundations of an individual's ability to react to change.

To make transitional periods as easy to adapt to as possible, Mr Haid claimed managers and employees at other levels of a business should aim to manage these factors.

He stated that a person's ability to control their emotions, combined with the self-confidence that can be generated by navigating interactions effectively, can "contribute to a strong sense of self-management".

The expert added: "[This is] particularly important during times of change."

Mr Haid's comments come after Psychology Today insisted that an understanding of behavioural psychology could improve the chances of a change management programme proving successful.

It said strategies that look to change a company's structure, rather than employees' mindsets, are likely to fail.
