Taking the time to celebrate

When it comes to change management, people don‘t believe in a new direction because they suspend their disbelief. They believe because they‘re actually seeing behaviour, action, and results that lead them to conclude that the program works.

Organizational change initiatives can be frustrating and take a long time. It is therefore critical to celebrate milestones once they have been reached.

Taking the time to celebrate is important because it acknowledges people’s hard work, boosts morale, keeps up the momentum, and neutralizes skepticism about the change effort.

Celebrate your successes and, indeed, just about everything you would like to see happen again. Little victories – the things that had worked, ways they had delighted their customers, problems they had turned into successes.

Success breeds success

Little victories inspire greater confidence, in part it’s because outsiders begin to notice and offer positive feedback, which creates even more commitment to keep going. When it comes to change, big victories are the results of lots of little wins.

High performance and success are not dependent on one simple factor or as a result of one or two things. The entire context you operate in greatly impacts your results.

Emotional and rational case for organizational change
Emotions are hugely powerful. But many managers barely tap into that power when driving organizational change. Employees’ emotions are where the momentum for real transformation lies.
