Create a valued, sustainable workplace culture

Every business needs to take on the challenge of change to secure a sustainable long-term future. To do this successfully, over and over and over again, needs a workplace culture that embraces change while also being agile in the fast-paced changing world we live, work and play in.

Any dysfunction in the workplace culture goes viral faster than any problem in any other area, becoming toxic to everything else in its path. Without a strong culture to support the change your business needs, any change you try to make is very likely to fall into the 70% of change initiatives that fail.

If you’re experiencing behaviours and attitudes that DO NOT support the change you are wanting from a change project – it may look like little or no communication between team members or departments; plans made that are never implemented; or departments have become silos – then it’s likely the result of a part or whole dysfunctional workplace culture. Therefore, the answer to your problem lies in changing the workplace culture.

Turn your culture from one with dysfunctions, where the lack of results says more than real results, to a powerful strategy you can reach out and touch as you unleash the power of the Change Play™ Model.

Making systems work for you, not against you

Ideally, you are doing what you are doing in business to experience a career that runs on your own terms.

Instead, you’re spending all your time doing things that increase ‘busyness’ with little to no reward for your hard work…and along comes another change project!

If this trend continues, what you have created becomes more of an interference in life as opposed to a vehicle through which to achieve greater things. Yet, to ensure success, you and your team need to be on the ball with continuous improvement and business or industry changes – ALL THE TIME. It is unrelenting. That is how important individual and business change agility and resilience is.

Yet it is more: if your business is failing to set and hit targets, experiencing inconsistent results or you’re unable to find the time to innovate and change like all other successful business seem to be able to do, then your business’s strategic design and systems are what need to be updated. They need to work for you, not against you, otherwise you or your teams will fall into the ‘change doesn’t work’ cycle with systems that operate in isolation to each other and therefore directly against the results you want to achieve.

In the modern business world, it is critical to design and implement an overall business change strategy moving forward that will have you accomplishing more of the things that truly matter in less time. The Change Play™ Model was specifically designed for this reason, changing the way change happens so the effectiveness of the systems directly reflect the attunement of culture, systems and people in the workplace.

Develop Change Players™ – your Change Champions

Your people – individuals, leaders and teams, are entrusted to make the change project work. There is an expectation they will invest in their work, carry on the effort, energy and time you have invested into your business so far.

Unfortunately, one poor decision can tarnish any good results thus far. And the results can be alarming at best, fatal at worst – the change project has failed! It is crucial that the leaders of your business are harnessed to become more than just box-ticking managers and can make the decisions that you shouldn’t be making anymore. This is critical to the success of any change project.

Additionally, your leaders must ultimately know themselves – their own strengths and weaknesses – before they can functionally and practically lead their team through change while building the potential of individuals, teams and your business.

This is when you want your leaders to be Change Players™ so they become your inhouse change specialists. This ensures your business sustainability because they become the experts in bringing the Change Play™ Model to life every day. Now you know your business is in great hands instead of just good hands!

Learning is Change – Change the way change happens

If change has been made within the people, systems and culture of a business, the new level of results can be inspiring for all involved. But without the ongoing education and support to ensure the changes will remain into the future, the fall from grace can be highly damaging.

After the initial and appropriate changes have been completed, your business will be facing a higher quality level of problems; this will require uniquely tailored training specific to your current challenges.

Working with Diane Gray therefore ensures that the growth of your people, systems and culture moving forward is supported, measured and analysed through ongoing education specifically tailored to your unique business growth situation.

The Change Play™ Model works because it focuses on three essential elements

People

Who is needed to make the change effective; who will lead the change; who has the required skills; and who is impacted by the change.

Systems

What specifically the change is; what gap the change fills; what skills are required; and what the ripple effect of the change is.

Culture

The essential reasons behind why the change is needed

Join the CHANGE movement – Changing the way change happens through culture, systems, people. Learn the skill of change. Increase your success rate in implementing small initiatives or major transformational change projects.

Change Play Pty Ltd is here, ready to help. We have developed a unique model that challenges the way change happens in business, teams and individuals.

Diane Gray has specifically designed the Change Play™ Model to build agility and resilience in this world of fast-paced change by attuning culture, systems, people. The model consistently delivers increased productivity, decreases time wasting and ultimately improves bottom line results.

Our ultimate aim is to provide you with your own team of Change Players™ from within your business so you can play the long-term game of successful change. To make this real takes education.

The Change Play™ Model is specifically designed to challenge the traditional ways change is implemented in business, particularly as 70% of change initiatives fail.

Our ultimate aim is to provide you with your own team of Change Players™ from within your business so you can play the long-term game of successful change. To make this real takes continuing education.

The Change Play™ Model is specifically designed to challenge the traditional ways change is implemented in business, particularly as 70% of change initiatives fail.

The Change Play™ Model works because it focuses on three essential elements: culture, systems, people. They define:

  • Why

    The essential reasons behind why the change is needed.

  • What

    What specifically the change is; what gap the change fills; what skills are required; and what the ripple effect of the change is.

  • Who

    Who is needed to make the change effective; who will lead the change; who has the required skills; and who is impacted by the change.

The Change Play™ Model shows you how to determine how the change is done, combining culture, systems, people.

Yet none of the above will create sustainable, long-term change without understanding the influence of mindset, biases, assumptions and perceptions. These are the heart of the Change Play™ Model because they underpin or undermine the success of any change, from small initiatives to large transformational change.

But there is more! The Change Play™ Model demands attunement of culture, systems and people from its heart to everything the change project influences. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking alignment is the same – it’s not.

Attunement requires so much more. It demands using multidimensional intelligences in thinking, feeling, planning, doing and conversing to continuously challenge the odds against change projects being sustainable for long-term results.

Remember: 70% of change initiatives fail. The Change Play™ Model changes the odds so you are in the 30% of change initiatives that are successful.

This is why we have created a unique four dimensional, easy-to-use approach to learning the Change Play™ Model so you create your own team of Change Players™ who can ensure change success time and time again.
