Inclusivity is all about change … organisations, groups, teams … in short we help people think and respond constructively to change.
Thirty years ago, “managing change” became a management buzzword; something to be measured, planned and controlled. Organisations were undertaking “as is/ to be’ journeys, restructuring roles and work responsibilities, introducing new IT systems or merging companies to achieve synergies.
Today, the world is a very different place. Change is pervasive in work and society. People work at home … coffee shops have become workplaces! Work is designed to meet the needs of people and the Internet has given access to knowledge and experiences from around the world like never before.
Over many years of training and experience of implementing change, Inclusivity has long recognised the uniqueness of every situation. While we rigorously use up-to-date best change practices, we never claim to have “seen it all before”. Our approach is to partner with our clients to co-create unique processes and solutions (often with neuroscience based findings) that suit each circumstance.
We see our role as similar to that of the Sherpa that help climbers summit Everest.
Success for us is to help others plant their flags on the peak. We do so by guiding others on appropriate routes (we mentor and coach key players), advise them on risk and dangers (we analyse patterns of thinking and behaviour) and assist them during unexpected events or crises (design and implement problem solutions). However, we can never climb the mountain on behalf of the client themselves!
The benefit of the Inclusivity collaboration is both effective change implementation and a hands-on experience of the journey that allows the client to reduce the risk of the next change challenge.
