Frances and Aimee explore why the research (and their experience) shows more than 70% of change initiatives fail to deliver the intended outcomes. Behind this is a failure to fully consider the psychology of human systems and a belief that people respond to change rationally.
Their discussion explores the human experience of change and reasons people both fear and seek it out. They consider the ways in which the unconscious can shape responses to change and focus on ways organizations can effectively engage employees and how leaders can support the change process. With healthcare M&A activity predicted to continue at pace and other change drivers at play, a deeper understanding of human responses to change can help healthcare organizations more effectively navigate turbulent times.
