Improving Productivity Part 2 - Creating an Environment for Change

Article posted 1st Mar 2019Engagement News

Welcome to the second from a series of four videos looking at how we can improve productivity in the workplace. 

Many organisations are focused on change, with the rapid rise of technology, the huge amounts of data providing insights, there is a lot of pressure to change and change quickly. But before we dive straight in, we need to consider how we create an environment conducive for change. This relates to creating an environment of trust. Us human beings are creatures of habit and this has served us well, as it aids our survival. The brain doesn't want to expend energy where it doesn't need to and by leaving things as they are, this helps it. 

The challenge with change is that whether the change is for our benefit or not, change itself can put us in a threatened mindset. now imagine change being implemented in an environment where people didn't trust each other? This would only enhance that threatened state.

Amrit shares how organisations can begin to create environments of trust and provide levels of certainty during periods of change:
