The Change Gym

We are specialists in the change process, personal change fitness, and organisational change readiness. We can help you in the following three areas.

Assess your organisation’s readiness for a particular change. Based on the latest understanding of change readiness, we audit 3 key areas impacting your organisational readiness for change and give you vital information that will help you make the best decisions moving forward. Our change readiness assessment will save you money, position you for success, increase engagement, and minimise staff turnover. The assessment process is online with minimal disruption to daily routines.

Develop your organisation’s capacity to adapt and succeed at the change process. Complimenting our change readiness assessment, we provide services to enhance your change readiness. This includes training, consulting, and coaching services to develop your teams’ change fitness (their psychological capacity to succeed at the change process), your communication strategies, and your readiness to manage change. The training and coaching programs are essential for change leaders and for those most affected by the proposed changes. In an environment of continuous change, change fitness coaching will help your staff overcome change fatigue, minimise resistance, and increase engagement.

Learn how to coach people in change fitness to increase their adaptability around change. We support the on-going development of change fitness and change readiness through coach training and professional development. Our coach training program is accredited by the International Coach Federation and teaches the skills and knowledge to become an certified change fitness coach. If you have experience in coaching and are willing to complete some training, we would like to talk with you. We provide a robust coaching framework with measurable outcomes, dedicated tools and resources, collaboration with other coaches, and the potential for referral clients.

We live in an age of constant change – globalisation, technology, AI, robotics. To survive and thrive as individuals and as organisations, we must compete against other people, disruptive ideas, and, increasingly, machines. To survive and thrive we must be good at change.

Being good at change lies at the heart of change readiness and change fitness.

We specialise in the change process, readiness and fitness for the change process, and educating individuals and organisations on how to be more successful at the change process.

We see change readiness and fitness as important for one very logical reason – those people with the most change fitness and change readiness are the ones most likely to succeed.

Our senior change readiness consulting team consists of highly trained and experienced specialists who can help you become more successful at the change process.  If you or your organisation is facing a change, in the middle of a change, or constantly changing, we encourage you to reach out to us and explore how we can help you.

CHANGE READINESS | CHANGE FITNESS – WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

Change readiness is a broader and more encompassing concept than change fitness. It combines 3 key components – the psychological readiness of people to succeed at the demands of the change process (their change fitness); the readiness of people to engage in the proposed change (buy-into the change); and the readiness of the change management team (or change/project manager) to lead the change process in a scientifically valid way. If any of these key components is weak, the organisation is not as ready for change as it needs to be. A change readiness audit provides a snapshot of these 3 areas, showing you where weaknesses exist and providing recommendations for overcoming them.

Change fitness is the first of these 3 key components. People have varying levels of change fitness, and they bring this fitness into the organisation. It becomes a kind of capital – or, if the change fitness is weak, a kind of risk factor. People with low change fitness don’t have the psychological capacity to handle change well and so they are more likely to be resistant and to disengage. This is much the same in the area of physical fitness. If you’re physically unfit, you will probably balk at the idea of a strenuous hike or a climb up a steep hill. But it is important to understand that low change fitness is something that can be changed, with the right intervention. People can learn to develop more change fitness and, as they do, they develop their capacity to withstand the challenges of the change process. In short, they develop the capacity to become more successful with change and less dependent on others.
