Sometimes change can be scary, and as a leader it’s your job to help your employees understand and adapt to the changes. Here are three ways you can help your team succeed during this adjustment process.Feedback: When change occurs, it can be overwhelming. Your employees may immediately have a million questions, but sometimes there can be a lot confusion. Seek feedback from every member of your team and to make sure everyone is on the same page. Giving your team detailed explanations to their questions will hopefully lead to more discussion that will eventually lead to clarity and understanding.Training: When new processes and products are launched, make sure the training required is adequate and thorough. The last thing you want is for your team to feel like they’re running around like headless chickens. Make sure each and every employee feels confident, prepared, and ready to perform their new responsibilities with excellence.Availability: Just because training is completed, it doesn’t necessarily guarantee that your transition will be smooth sailing. Even if your staff is prepared, there will be bumps along the way. Check in frequently at first and be more encouraging than critical. Your team wants to adjust and be able to handle things on their own, but they’ll definitely need you to be supportive along the way.last_img
