Why Is Change So Hard? with Jason Ormond, Holly Davis, and Nathan Scholes.

Episode Summary

Change can be something difficult or challenging, but it will always be necessary.

We know life isn’t as static as we would want it to be. But having a change once in a while is good. Change management can be a whole conversation to have with teammates. Sometimes things happen so fast that the ability to adapt is a must to achieve what we plan. Keeping the team in a positive mindset is part of the leader’s job. This also happens inside companies when things go wrong.

In this panel-like conversation, Jason, Holly, Nathan, and Jesse discuss the best practices and advice in change management.

Key Take-Aways

  • As a culture, we make big plans but don’t break them down. The same thing happens when we break a team to do tasks, we never regroup to get feedback.

  • Jason says, “you have to be fully committed to really move through the change.”

  • Most change needs people to change too.

  • A leader must hold everyone accountable and recognize the wins.

  • Sometimes you need to back off emotionally to think with a clear mind.

  • To have a cultural change, micromanagement has to be eradicated.
