Resilience is about coming back stronger and more capable from adversity. Those who have developed true resilience welcome change as an opportunity for learning and growth. Resilient people are not immune to the VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) world, yet they get less disrupted.

In recent years, we have seen that traditional approaches to leadership have become ineffective. Change leadership is a new approach that empowers leaders with highly transferable and future-ready skills.

If no one is using the new process, system or if people don’t want to be part of the (de-)merger, then you have achieved the project goal without realising its ROI. Excellent change management ensures that the solution that your project is implementing is adapted and used.
Leaders must acknowledge the challenges that organisational change brings. According to Gartner, over 80% of employees experience cultural tensions or competing priorities during transformations. Both create stress and worsen performance.
