Get Ready

Organizational Readiness

There is an emotional response that accompanies all change. The larger the impact to an organization or to an individuals daily tasks, the larger the emotional response risk and potential degrees of resistance. When introducing change across an organization, it is important to understand how the change could or will be perceived so that you can tailor your strategy to ensure minimal disruptions. Just remember, once resistance surfaces, it is often difficult to sever that negative emotional tie. Understanding and keeping emotional response at the forefront of your planning will increase the chance of a successful adoption.

Be sure your Salesforce Roll-Out plan includes:

  • "Why this change?" communication from your Executive Sponsorship
  • Communications Plan
  • Training Strategy
  • Feedback Strategy
