Quote of the Show:

“Give your employees the gift of time and consistency and they will embrace change everyday.”



  • Employees don’t actually resist change. It’s all in the delivery of the message, so if you say it and deliver it in a positive way they will accept it. 
  • Employees feel like all they do is talk about change and nothing really ends up happening, so it feels like an endless loop.
  • Employees are typically well invested and excited about change. They are more nervous about the framework and timeline of the change.
  • When you want to introduce any form of change, you want to make sure you have enough time for that.
  • Carve out time to have a conversation with your employees about the change. Don’t just send an email or a Slack, talk with them in person.
  • Have weekly meetings with your employees. It will show that you respect their time and want to give them the time and attention they deserve.
