The Change Gym provides:

ORGANISATIONAL CHANGE READINESS AUDITS AND CONSULTING РWe work alongside your change management team, providing you detailed information about your change readiness. We bring the very latest understanding of the science of change readiness, and our audit will give you key information to help you make the best decisions. This will help you succeed by boosting your efficiency during the change process. Our change readiness information, audits, and consulting services will save you money, position you for success, increase engagement, and minimise staff turnover. Discover how much you could save by completing an online assessment.

CHANGE FITNESS COACHING – Complimenting our change readiness audit and consulting services, we also provide specialised coaching services to boost your teams’ change fitness (their psychological capacity to succeed at the change process). These coaching programs are essential for leaders and those who are 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. Our coaching programs are scientifically validated, approved by the International Coach Federation, delivered online by trained and accredited change fitness coaches. Change fitness coaching will help your organisation succeed at any kind of change and help your employees become more change-fit, agile, and adaptable.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT TRAINING FOR COACHES IN CHANGE FITNESS – To support our focus of providing quality consultancy and coaching services to organisations, we are always looking for trained and highly-skilled coaches to work alongside us. You need to be willing to complete our training and accreditation program in change fitness coaching. If you are interested in joining us, or would simply like to learn how to better help your clients succeed at change, we encourage you to reach out to us and express your interest. We provide a robust coaching framework with measurable outcomes, dedicated tools and resources, collaboration with other coaches, and the potential for referral clients.

As you can see from what is written above, we specialise in the change process, readiness and fitness for the change process, and helping individuals and organisations transition to greater states of readiness.

Readiness is much more than feeling prepared or having all the boxes ticked – those things may be important, but they don’t ensure you are ready to engage in the change process.

We see change readiness as important for one very logical reason – the people who are most likely to succeed at change are those who are most ready for it. If you attempt to engage in change without first checking your change readiness, you are not exercising due diligence and you risk falling into traps you could easily have avoided.

Our senior change readiness consulting team consists of of two specialists – one with a PhD in change readiness, and the other with 24 year’s experience as HR director of a Fortune 100 company. Both are highly experienced and trained change readiness consultants and change fitness coaches.

If your organisation is facing a change, in the middle of a change, or constantly changing, we encourage you to reach out to us and see 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.
