Change is essential to success, but it's not always easy. Think of it as a puzzle—if all the pieces aren't in place, the picture won't be complete. That's why educating leaders and teams is so important. It's time to bring the change to life by getting everyone on board with the behaviors, skills, knowledge, and abilities necessary for a successful transition. Let's take a look at how we can do that!

The REFRAME Change Management Model promotes a leader-led approach to education through train-the-trainer and mentor opportunities. The goal here is to ensure that everyone in leadership roles—from executives to managers—is up to date on the new processes being implemented. They should also know what their role is in ensuring everyone else understands them too.

It may also be beneficial to coach and mentor individual employees as they go through their own change journey. Taking this approach gives each person an opportunity to discuss any roadblocks they encounter along the way. This provides leadership with an understanding of how people are responding to change, which can help inform decisions about future changes or initiatives.

Leaders should also set an example by attending education sessions themselves and demonstrating support throughout the process. Watching those in charge practice what they preach helps build trust with team members and sets a positive tone for future changes or initiatives. This also allows leaders to provide feedback during the training process, which can help refine and improve it over time.

Educating leaders and teams on the behaviors, skills, knowledge and abilities necessary for successful change is essential if you want your transition period to be smooth sailing rather than choppy waters. Partnering closely with all supporting roles (e.g., communications, IT) will help deploy an effective education plan that makes sure everyone knows exactly what’s expected of them during this process – from executive leadership down through team members – while also providing mentorship opportunities throughout the transition period itself so any issues are quickly addressed before they become larger problems down the line!  By doing this you’ll create a culture of trust where people feel supported when it comes time for change - making it easier for them embrace whatever comes next!
