Réussir son workshop à distance en 4 étapes

Lorsque vous conduisez un workshop, vous constituez le catalyseur du groupe de réflexion. Pour en optimiser les résultats/aboutissements vous devez maitriser à la fois les méthodologies de conception d’un atelier, les tactiques de facilitation ainsi que les différents outils dans le cas de collaboration à distance. En effet, les ateliers à distance sont entrés dans la nouvelle norme du travail collaboratif et comprennent des spécificités dont il faut absolument tenir compte pour valoriser l’intelligence collective.

Les 5 rôles de la communication interne dans la conduite du changement

Rôle n°1 de la Communication interne : ne pas faire échouer le projet - Encore trop nombreux sont nos clients qui nous contactent quelques semaines à peine avant le lancement d’un projet structurant pour leur entreprise. C’est le propre de ce type de projet, tellement prenant et multifacettes : souvent le côté technique l’emporte sur le côté humain. Faisons-en sorte d’infléchir le chiffre de McKinsey qui estime un taux d’échec de 70% des objectifs de transformation des entreprises. Et la communication interne est un facteur de succès qu’il est indispensable d’actionner dans ce but.

How to communicate the need for Change and boost your Change project

It is a truism to say that the rule for organisations is to change continuously. It is also well known that resistance to change is regularly observed, causing most change efforts to fail. Even when the need for change is apparently straightforward, people may resist for various reasons. Therefore, this article will highlight aspects that can help change leaders to effectively communicate the need for change and mobilise their employees to make change happen.

La communication visuelle dans la conduite du changement

Tout se monnaye. En particulier la rareté. C’est le cas de l’attention consacrée à l’information. Or, l’un des enjeux de la conduite du changement implique la bonne compréhension des enjeux, de la raison d’être du projet de Change et ses modalités. Comment faire vivre ce changement en captant les 12 minutes de temps d’attention* que vos équipes peuvent accorder à votre organisation ? Votre arme fatale : la communication visuelle.

When did the way we communicate change?

Several months ago, when companies were thrust into lockdown at relatively short notice there was just enough time to get equipment sorted. Then the next important challenge to tackle was to ensure that everyone had access to some form of central data base, once these considerations had been taken into account, everyone concentrated on “getting the job done”. As no one knew how long this would continue for, there did not seem to be any need to start (re)defining communication strategies. As a result, many companies experienced the rise of usage of a multitude of communication channels both internally and externally. At internal level, staff resorted to methods they already knew, for example by creating WhatsApp groups, Slack channels or even in some cases Facebook groups. They needed to find a quick, efficient way of keeping in touch with colleagues. At an external level, some companies were sufficiently agile to be able to adapt to virtual methods, quickly setting up webinars to stay in touch with their client base and publishing online newsletters to share expertise and maintain interest in their products and services. Others were not able to follow suit, as their staff or internal structures were quite simply not able to adapt so quickly – and anyway “it would only be temporary…. soon everything will be back to normal”…. Several months later, most of us are still not able to attribute a clear definition to what is “normal”, but we have all come to appreciate that it definitely is not the same as it used to be. There is much talk about the “new normal” and this needs to be taken into account with respect to communication, just as is the case for personnel questions and company strategy.

Old Ways Won’t Open New Doors!

Sometimes the effects of an occurrence are not immediately visible, this does not necessarily make them less important, it just means you need to take time to understand what is happening. Here is an example: on the Galapagos Islands a variety of turtle lays its eggs in the sand, it has done so for thousands of years. Every year hundreds of little turtles hatch and run down to the sea. This is still the case, at face value nothing has changed, until you learn that the temperature of the sand defines how many male and female turtles hatch. Thanks to global warming, this fine balance has been disturbed and now many more females hatch than males – so although you cannot immediately see this difference it is nevertheless there and will have a huge impact on the long-term future of this variety of turtle. This may also be the case in a workplace context. The recent crisis has sown an environment of fear; fear of the invisible, fear of the unknown, fear of what is to come.
