It is satisfying to have an organisation which functions according to expectations, but this still does raise a few questions. At first glance, are you 100% satisfied with every functional aspect of the entity? Can its function and effectiveness be improved upon right now, as well as in the immediate future?
What about the longer term? Is the organisation likely to remain static and eventually become stagnant, largely unchanged from its current status quo? Or should you be looking at its immediate and future development to ensure that it operates effectively and efficiently, and remains relevant?
In virtually every organisation, its operation and performance are largely dependent on the performance of its people, and yet, many of those very same people may have settled into a comfort zone, which is not unusual. Without being given new goals and a cohesive strategy to reach these goals, people tend to become complacent and remain satisfied with that which is familiar.
Employees staying within their comfort zone usually occurs in working or operating conditions that don’t provide noticeably clear opportunities. As such, you need a fresh organisational approach to create a culture in which employees are enabled to develop and grow within the company. Such development thus also benefits the entity – interdepartmentally and in its entirety.
At the same time, one should keep in mind that some staff members may be resistant to change, without even being aware of it. It is often only when change is proposed or introduced that resistance becomes apparent.

These multifaceted strategies that we employ in our role as your organisational development partners are conducted openly and transparently, through effective communication, since we don’t disguise any facts or findings, even those which may be less than pleasing.
On all levels, effective interpersonal communication without the fear of high-handed retribution is key to getting diverse individual staff members to look forward to or relish changes that new organisational development strategies may entail, even those employees who are initially resistant to change.
Instead, we help your people and your group to face challenges and changes with confidence, converting problems and hurdles into opportunities that result in a more effective, relevant, optimally functioning concern, where individuals, teams and groups become passionate about unlocking their potential and that of the company.
