People Management

Amanda uses international tools and techniques; one of which is ADKAR, by Prosci.

The Prosci definition of change management: the process, tools and techniques to manage the people side of change to achieve a required business outcome.

The Hard Side of People:

“For over three decades, academics, managers, and consultants, have realised that pivoting is difficult. They have dissected the subject. They’ve sung the praises of leaders who communicate vision and walk the talk in order to achieve success. They’ve sanctified the importance of a pivoting culture and managing employees. They’ve teased out the tensions between top-down transformation efforts and participatory approaches to change. And they’ve exhorted companies to launch campaigns that appeal to people’s hearts and minds. Still, studies show that in most organisations, two out of three transformation initiatives fail. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Managing people is tough, but part of the problem is that there is little agreement on what factors most influence the growth people need. Ask five executives to name the one factor critical for success, and you’ll probably get five different answers. That’s because each person looks at an initiative from his or her viewpoint and, based on personal experience, focuses on different success factors. The experts, too, offer different perspectives. A recent search on for books on “change and management” turned up 6,153 titles, each with a distinct take on the topic. There is an overload of information that forces companies to tackle many priorities simultaneously, which spreads resources and skills thin.”

The best place to start with people management, is by applying an effective coaching approach whilst leading and launching a quality coaching program for people development. Adapted extract from this article hear

It does not matter that the company has…

      • Lots of money
      • Beautiful offices
      • A cutting edge vision
      • Uses the latest technology
      • Previously won awards
      • Amazing opportunities lined up
      • Great intentions
      • High hopes
      • A phenomenal strategy
      • ….

Without people, you have nothing!

All of these things are really valuable and have their place, but no matter what… Your success depends directly on your people. You might have told them many times, you might have it illustrated in the entrance hall, but are they fully onboard and confident in their place and the future?

Are your staff empowered to their full potential?

Are you experiencing all their potential colour?

When last did you invest in your people ? REALLY invest, with quality ROI? The best investment of a company is its people. Find talent, develop talent and keep talent.

No matter how marvellous your corporate vision is or your business plan, without people being who they need to be, it will fail!

Have you employed the best of the best, but no matter what…. the team does not produce the results they should. There might be power play or they just purely misunderstand each other and instead of working together, they subconsciously work against each other.

If you think about it, people take a loan from the bank to buy a nice car which depreciates daily. What about taking a loan from the bank to invest in staff for an ROI that will appreciate daily. Exponential compounded return on investment!

Every situation is different. There is no “one size fits all”.
