How Storytelling Can Transform Your Change Management Approach
Storytelling has long been a powerful tool for engaging and inspiring others. But have you used it yet for taking your change management skills to the next level?
Our expert speakers shared their experiences and insights on how storytelling can transform your approach to change management. In our webinar, we discussed three challenges common during organisational change. These include the constant feeling of herding cats, the bumpy ride of transitions, and the search for elusive sponsors after the initial kick-off. But fear not - Eva Sayem, our Change Management expert, provided practical tips and tools to effectively navigate through these challenges. Let us look at how storytelling can help overcome these obstacles and bring success to your change management.
By using analogies, Eva helped us understand the importance of having a clear structure and foundation in place for successful change management. Just like a blueprint for a house, the L.P.C. triangle helps guide our approach and ensures all elements are stable and working together seamlessly. Additionally, comparing the change management process to a baby's first year highlights the need for patience and nurturing during times of transition. Leaders with change management capabilities are like trusted doctors, guiding and supporting their "patients" through the change process. And just like recovering from surgery, addressing resistance to change is a crucial step in achieving successful outcomes. These analogies provide a new perspective on major challenges in change management and offer practical strategies for navigating them effectively.

Tools for Effective Change Management
Aside from storytelling, our webinar also shared valuable tools to engage stakeholders, fast-track a communication plan, and measure progress during organisational change.
Here is how you can use them in your change management approach to create momentum:
Hello there lovely lady! Thanks for that chat, great session - impressed with the tools you have out there, I have wanted for some time to make my card deck I love using card decks in everything, so portable and fun. I am pitching one in-house for a cultural change now. Feedback on the event, well prepared and facilitated - your roles were clear, making it easy for the group. You could seed a few questions beforehand just in case, though you handled it well in getting people to speak up (always difficult). You could draw a distinct line between your catchy title (the "one" tip) and the content - maybe in the follow-up comms? My takeaway was that the one killer tip is storytelling!

Looking at a varied toolbox, our team also emphasised the importance of measuring progress during business change. This can be done through pulse checks and collecting feedback from stakeholders at the start, at key milestones and 3 months after go-life. By tracking progress, you can identify and respond to any potential roadblocks and work on areas that need extra attention for lasting change.
Our biggest webinar yet was a huge success, thanks to all our amazing speakers, the support team, and incredible participants. We hope that the insights, tips, and tools shared will help transform your change management approach and bring success to all your future projects. Change is omnipresent, but with the right skills and strategies, it can be fun. Please continue the conversation to build the ultimate change toolbox.
