Managers Need To Embrace Change To Rebuild Businesses In The Current Economic Climate

Share Article

Change is inevitable in any business but it is almost always resisted from within. Yet the ability to adapt to change is vital, particularly following a period of slow growth. In her new book, management consultant Keely Nugent provides a workable framework for embracing change.

As an management consultant, Keely Nugent frequently witnesses the obstacles organisations are faced with when implementing change . Over the years she has also observed similar resistance in horses being prepared for international competitions.

In her new book, Change, bring it on!, published by Infinite Ideas, Keely builds on tried and tested techniques and emotional engagement used in the training of international level competition horses and applies these lessons to the world of business. Keely provides a very simple framework that demonstrates how to establish a winning team, how leaders and their organisations should work together to achieve success, how to plan and manage change and how to deal with the inevitable obstacles along the way.

Keely’s Key Advice:

  • Departments within an organisation should work as one cohesive team to enable the organisation to be balanced as a whole.
  • Leadership is vital; as with horse training, managers need to be realistic about where they’re starting from, clear about where they’re going and learn how to take the rough with the smooth.
  • Change is continuous; don't assume anything remains the same. Either we initiate and manage change ourselves and control it or it will happen anyway and control us.

Keely Nugent is a strategic thinker and communicator who specialises in business change, helping CEO's, boards and management teams to gain clarity of vision, executive team alignment, stakeholder engagement and a clear plan of action. A qualified coach, Keely runs The Key 2 Limited, a consultancy that specialises in helping leaders and their organisations become more agile and effective.
