Meet People Where They're At
Different stakeholders will be at different levels of understanding. This is the natural result of how human beings process information. We call the progression from first contact to embedded in the day-to-day functions, the Activation Curve (pictured above). The curve will follow the same sequence as the Barriers to Change cards moving from Problem Alignment, Solution Alignment, Engagement, Interpersonal, The Unknown, Execution. To move people from the bottom of the curve to the top, you must start with where they are today. Plot out exactly where each of your stakeholder groups sits on the curve today and where you would like them to be in the future.
Use the Change Activation Canvas to map key stakeholders to the curve and segment your audience. This is a fast way to break through the clutter of who needs to be involved in a change process and get clarity on where to start, where you need them to be, and by when.
Measure the impact of engaging your workforce and make the case that organizational agility is non-negotiable.
