How Individual Change Readiness Enables a Smooth Transformation

When organizations undertake a transformation initiative, research shows these efforts fail 70% of the time. Transformational change requires individuals to behave differently. They should be able to accept it and be ready to surge ahead with it. You name their degree of acceptance and alignment as their Change Readiness. It is key to the success of the transformation at hand.

However, getting everyone on the same page and surge ahead with the same enthusiasm is a tough nut to crack. We are talking about people, each with their agendas, aspirations, fears, and beliefs.

This means that leaders must address how people think and act in their day-to-day work. They need to make a compelling case for change and serve as a role model who will inspire others to adopt new behaviors. Else, the change will be temporary, and the gains will fitter away quickly, leaving a sour taste in everyone’s mouth.

Not everyone receives to change the same way, so a ‘One for All’ approach will not reap results.

Therefore, the first step is to understand where on the change curve do people in your organization stand before you try to address their needs. And then follow up with an approach that works for them.

Nothing works better than looking at examples to understand something and devise strategies that work.

The most relatable situation at hand is that of organizations trying to figure out how best to respond to the changed realities post the pandemic. Both organizations and people within the organizations have reacted with anger, fear, and denial to the economic disruption and health impacts of the pandemic.

The way we work changed as everyone was asked to work from home, till we figured out a solution to this grave situation. Here are some of the responses from employees (anonymous):

"What is happening to humankind is really sad. Everything is locked down. My life is locked down. My career is locked down. God, what will I do?"

This whole pandemic is going to doom our business and cost us millions. Why didn’t we see this coming? Who are these people who spread this virus?

This lockdown is painful, and everyone wants to get back to work and earn a living, but that's the only way to control the number of casualties.

 This is what is happening, and we need to accept this reality. It is time to be proactive and respond with the right measures. We will be able to sail through if we act fast.

Take a closer look, and you will realize that each response is unique and indicates a different level of acceptance to change. Looking at these responses through the Kübler-Ross Change model lens can help us empathize and strategize our approach to such scenarios.

 

Kübler-Ross Change Model

 

Response Stage 1: As people are in a state of shock and denial, they will resist accepting facts at face value. As a leader, you need to initiate communication with your team members. To help them overcome denial, you must aim to listen to their pain points or beliefs, educate them about the changes, and be prepared to take feedback on possible strategies to deal with the situation at hand.

Response Stage 2: At this stage, there is still anger and fear, so you must give time and space. Watch them closely, listen to their concerns and build the support necessary to help them overcome their fears and calm their anger towards the unprecedented situation.

Response Stage 4: As people commit to rebuilding and recouping by putting their weight behind change initiatives, a pat on the back, appreciation, and even rewards go a long way in pushing their motivation levels up. Celebrate their effort, will, and outcomes. Ensure all policies, procedures, and general structure mirror the new changes and they’re adhered to. Continuously demand high standards and reward new behaviors. Look forward, not back.

Remember, as digital transformation initiatives are implemented, individuals go through change at scale- individually and collectively. A leader must understand that people do not go through a change in a linear, step-by-step fashion. They tend to move through the stages in random order and may sometimes even lapse to a previous stage after a certain point in time. Therefore, it is vital that the right strategies are tailored to meet individuals' needs as they cope with the changes necessary for a successful transformation effort.

People are learning to cope with something as tricky as a global pandemic with help from their community and governments. Coping with a digital transformation might be comparatively manageable if you have a strategy to help them cruise through the change curve strategically. Don't you think?

Ways to see through a successful digital transformation

"The only constant in life is change."

- Heraclitus

Digital transformation image

This is a quote we've all grown up listening to, and yet we don't always manage to respond to it positively or proactively. We are who we are as a race, thanks to this constant change and our transformation in response. The inability to change, progress, or grow can result in stagnation.  If we were to sit with our hands crossed and do nothing about it, change has the capability of rendering us redundant.

"When the rate of change on the outside exceeds the rate of change on the inside, the end is near."

These words of wisdom of Jack Welch became the reality of more than 52% of the Fortune 500 companies that ceased to exist due to digital disruption since 2000.

Even before a pandemic, organization leaders ranked digital disruption as their top business priority for 2020. And as we enter 2021, COVID-19 has escalated digital initiatives into digital imperatives, creating an urgent need to rethink strategy, leadership capabilities, and culture.

So, what is Digital? Is it a social media presence? Or mobile technology?

Digital is not a thing. It is a foundational change in how an organization delivers value to its customers.

It is a way of using technology to achieve three objectives:

  • Create exceptional customer experiences
  • Make internal processes agile
  • Unlock new business value

To understand precisely What is Digital? How is it disrupting every industry? And how can you leverage technology to create exceptional customer experiences, make internal processes agile and unlock new business value? Watch this video where Rajiv Jayaraman, Founder & CEO, KNOLSKAPE, explains these concepts and more

 

How is Digital transforming our reality?

Technology is blurring the boundaries between physical and digital, between organizations, between the Now and the Next quite rapidly. So much so that we see entire industries being disrupted within months rather than years. And it is this phenomenon that Rajiv Jayaraman refers to as the Digital BLUR in his book, Clearing the Digital BLUR™.

BLUR stands for:

Boundaryless Organization – today organizations operate more like organisms in boundaryless ecosystems.

Limitless Digitization - everything is beginning to have a parallel existence in the cloud.

Unbounded innovation – as customer experience becomes more important, industry boundaries become less meaningful.

Relentless Iteration – as time gets crunched. Now, new and next start to happen all at the same time.

To respond to the Digital BLUR™ phenomenon, organizations must completely rewire their strategies, how these strategies get executed, the leadership competencies, and the organization's culture.

Why do you need to respond?

Business leaders are well aware that Digital transformation not only impacts industry structures and strategic positioning, but it affects all levels of an organization (every task, activity, process) and even its extended supply chain. They must ensure that they leverage this change to unlock productivity gains and significant competitive advantage while delivering exceptional customer experience. And with this in mind, a lot of digital transformation initiatives are being led and funded.

However, these digital transformation initiatives have not been easy to realize. According to the McKinsey research on digital transformation efforts, only 30% of Digital Transformations are successful.

Why do Digital transformation initiatives fail?

We must try to understand the reason behind the failure of these initiatives.

These initiatives are certainly not bad ideas. The problem is that they are badly championed.

Let's take the example of Ford motor company. In an attempt for digital transformation, they created a new segment called Ford Smart Mobility in 2014. The goal was to build digitally-enabled cars with enhanced mobility. The issues arose when the company did not integrate the new segment into the rest of FORD. Not only was it headquartered far from the rest of the company, but it was also seen as a separate entity with no cohesion to other business units. As Ford pumped vast amounts of money into its new venture, it faced quality concerns in other areas of the company. Ford's stock price dropped considerably, and their CEO stepped down a few years later.

The lesson:

To drive a transformation of this magnitude, digital transformation needs to be integrated into the company's DNA. You need to garner the alignment and commitment of all your stakeholders. You must take a three-pronged approach involving Strategy, Culture, and Capability:

Strategy

The existing strategy must be replaced by a new one that is more closely aligned to a Digital ecosystem's opportunities and challenges. Seek answers to these critical questions:

  • What does this new direction mean for us as an organization? Where is this taking us?
  • What are our long-term prospects if we switch?
  • These answers will help you discover possibilities that can be unlocked by being Digital.
Culture

Transformations ask for shifts, and shifts need a buy-in of your people, their alignment, and commitment. Culturally, stakeholders at all levels will need to change how they think and operate to discover more possibilities that can be unlocked by being Digital. And this is only possible when you:

  • Create an Awareness of the need for change
  • Generate a Desire to support the change
  • Share the Knowledge of how to change
  • Develop an Ability to demonstrate skills & behaviors
  • Invest in Reinforcement to make change stick.

 

Capability

As digital reshapes strategy, its execution requires enabling people and updating processes and technology to build new-age capabilities so that they can turn these possibilities into reality.

As a leader, you need to make significant progress on all three to be able to convince your stakeholders and propel them on the path of transformation.

In our upcoming writeups, we will cover Strategy, Culture, and Capability transformation in depth. Do look out for them!

Leadership lessons learnt at KNOLSKAPE

Author: Mariam Taqui Ali | Senior Associate - KNOLSKAPE Insights Centre

KNOLSKAPE_Management_Team“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” - Simon Sinek

This blog piece is a personal account of my interactions with the leaders at KNOLSKAPE, a place that means to me what Hogwarts meant to Harry Potter. Potterheads reading this post would probably know what I mean, but for those who are not sure where this is headed, let me break it down for you.

I’ve been at KNOLSKAPE for over a year now. In this time, I have said several times that KNOLSKAPE is a ‘great place to work’. The common responses from friends and acquaintances for that statement were that ‘I am being naïve’, ‘I don’t have enough experience to understand’, ‘I have rose-tinted glasses on’, or simply that ‘it’s the corporate world, nothing is as it seems’. I’m happy to share that I was right and it’s definitely a great place to work at – certified too! So, yes, KNOLSKAPE is a fabulous place to be, to work, to grow and to learn, especially from those who lead.

I have worked across and with various teams in the time I have been here, and had a fair share of interactions with the leaders who walk the talk and make KNOLSKAPE a great place to work. Along the way, I have learnt valuable lessons on leadership that will forever stay with me, because I have seen key leadership traits and practices being embodied by our leaders.

My first lesson in becoming a better leader came from our Founder & CEO, Rajiv Jayaraman, someone who always smiles or waves at you when you walk past him in the corridors or across the cafeteria. One occasion that stands out in my memory is from my early days at KNOLSKAPE. As a writer, it is sometimes difficult to be in noisy spaces, and I had trouble collecting my thoughts to create coherent sentences. Therefore, I would look around for quiet places in the office where I could pull my thoughts together in peace and write. Rajiv spotted me cooped up in a room one day, clacking away on the keys of my laptop, and stopped to talk to me. Never would I have expected the outcome that ensued from simply explaining my situation - I would get personal updates from Rajiv on Slack, alerting me of vacant meeting rooms to work in peace. Once, he even dropped a message saying, “I’m in Mumbai. Feel free to use my cabin. Be the CEO for the day!” I realised then that being a leader is not simply about being a face, but taking the time out to be personable and involved, making an effort to be there for your people and be mindful of their needs.

I learnt my second lesson during a game of Secret Santa, where my Christmas Angel was Dileep, KNOLSKAPE’s Head of Finance – a quiet, serious, and focused professional whom I had barely interacted with at the time of this activity.  I was also apprehensive about setting my angel a task as I was unsure if asking a senior leader to participate in the Christmas fervour and games would be appropriate. A little queasy and at the same time wanting to be an active Santa, I shared a task. And lo, much to my pleasant surprise – he completed the task I had set for him! That’s when I realised that even leaders have inhibitions and vulnerabilities. The true mark of a great leader, however, is the willingness to push yourself out of your comfort zone and going with the flow. To get down from the mantle and be there with your people and being a part of the little things that make them happy is really a game changer.

Lesson three: One would think that as the Head of People Practice at KNOLSKAPE, and a lawyer by training, Raksha Shenoy would be someone stern and difficult to approach. My interactions with Raksha, however, have varied from talking about her impeccable sense of style to running trainings in organizations, and everything in between. What has always stood out for me is the candour with which she handles all employee concerns. No matter what issues that employees face, she will find a way to accommodate and resolve them. She is often heard humorously saying, “If nothing else works, we will launch a strike against the HR team!” She taught me that, as a leader, you can’t be defensive and jump the gun. Playing it cool and understanding the real issues of your people is necessary for things to run smoothly. Sometimes winning them over means to let go of your position and role to address and handle what is truly at stake.

The next leader on my list is Madan Panathula. The world knows him as a thorough professional and a Rockstar facilitator. At KNOLSKAPE, he is considered the funniest person around, constantly having everyone in splits. For me, he has been like a lighthouse. His calm presence and guidance have helped me sail through my ups and downs. I could always turn to him for any sound advice and rest assured that my problem would be solved if I ever broached it with him. As a leader, it is important for you to be approachable and that your people can connect with you. Leaders must be there in entirety and not merely words; people need to know that they can bank on someone and have this person to depend on, no matter what the situation may be.

It is often said that as leaders should practice what they preach and only one man comes to my mind when I think of it - Shobhit Mathur, the Chief Business Officer at KNOLSKAPE and my boss’ boss. Shobhit is a real task-master and pleasing him is a near impossible task. For his team, being appreciated by him is considered akin to winning an Oscar, and I’m humbled that I received one in my little time here. Shobhit’s real talent, however, is in bringing out the best in others, and he does so by example. If that means getting his hands dirty and working to fix or improve something, he will do it, no questions asked. If we were to use a leadership checklist, you can be assured that Shobhit would make it to all.  As a leader, leading by example is important, to lend authenticity and being the person that you would want your people to look up to. Building that trust and credibility is crucial to being a leader and Shobhit commands all of that and more.

We would often think that leaders are the ones who you see as the face of a company or a brand. Being at KNOLSKAPE, I realised there are some leaders who will push you to the fore and work in the background ensuring that things run without hiccups. I’m talking about Vijay Kalangi, Chief Technology Officer and co-founder of KNOLSKAPE, who is happy working to ensure that the company develops and builds high quality learning products, and letting Rajiv take the reins in the spotlight. As leaders it is also important to be able to keep away from the spotlight. It requires you to allow your work to speak for itself and trust another to take the legacy forward.

Though my interactions has been brief with this man, Ritish Reddy is a star leader at KNOLSKAPE. He started the APAC operations and is now heading the U.S.A market. He’s known for his ability to turn things around and being cool in the face of trouble, a knack for risk taking, consultative selling and creating opportunities. My first interaction up close was to plan for a LinkedIn campaign to tap on the U.S.A market. He came forward and asked me what needs to be done for the same. Right then, I understood that as leader, you may not have all the answers but being able to let the other person know and allowing them to lead you for a change is also necessary.

Next in line is Sethu – known for his quick tongue, wit and wisdom. He introduced himself to me as ‘Hi, I’m Sethu, part of the BD team.’ Immediately another colleague commented saying, “so humble”. I wondered what was happening and then I came to know that this was the man responsible for heading all the operations PAN-India. It was then I received the key leadership lesson - leaders need to be humble and be grounded to the realities of life. It is what takes them forward and draws others towards them to follow like moth to fire.

Last but not the least, my leadership learnings would not conclude if I didn’t add one more name to this list, Swati Kamath. My manager, boss, coach, mentor…basically the all in one. Functioning by the logic, when in doubt at KNOLSKAPE, ask Swati. My go-to person for all things. And I realised the reason for her being my soundboard and someone I completely look up to and am inspired by her empathetic personality. Leaders need to be empathetic. Understanding your people and being there for them and giving them the chance to grow and understand is pivotal to being a true leader.

At KNOLSKAPE, I found my leaders and the traits that all leaders must emulate and exhibit. My journey here may have concluded but these memories and lessons will last me a lifetime. Do Let me know your thoughts if you feel the same about your leaders and what do you take home?

    Webinar: Why happiness at work matters – and 3 tips to increase it

    Why happiness at work matters and 3 tips to increase it

    What if we told you, “If you do this one very simple thing, you will be much more successful at work. You will get much bigger salary raises, you will get promoted faster, and yes, your boss will like you!” You’d probably say, “tell me all about it” of course!

    Prof Raj Raghunathan of the University of Texas is here to tell you that this very simple thing is as simple as it gets: it’s being happier at work. A lot of studies have shown that, the happier you are at work, the more career success you will enjoy. Happier people get higher raises, get promoted faster, and their bosses like them more. This relationship between being happy and career success has been replicated so many times and across so many different countries that it is no longer debated.

    In this webinar, we deep-dive into the topic of Happiness at work, and what you as a talent development professional can do to help improve it!
