Change continues to be a hot topic, because it’s happening faster, driven by rapid technological innovation, and is clearly not slowing down or going away. As a result of all the rapid changes taking place in technology and how people work, it’s more critical for leaders to demonstrate adaptability and resilience. Leaders can help their teams better embrace what’s new by communicating a positive vision of change in combination with a concept of continuity, to emphasize what stays the same. The pace and complexity of change contribute to intense emotions that play out in organizations. Fear, uncertainty, frustration, resentment, anger, depression, guilt, distrust, and a sense of unfairness can make it difficult for leaders to set direction, encourage alignment and gain commitment from the people within their organizations.
