PRESENTING the "Change Curve"
Employees are usually aware of upcoming changes to process or technology, and often times are trained in the new systems and processes. But how often are they prepared for the psychological implications of upcoming changes. Planning ahead and being upfront about the psychological impact of future changes gives employees visibility into into new times and reduces uncertainty. It also creates a sense of comradery among those facing similar impact. Creating a culture of care, honesty, and transparency makes people want to grow and continue working for you, even if you may not be able to employ them much longer.
