“Leading change today requires strategic thinking, great timing, accountability, and engagement. Change Up helps you get there.”
Unfortunately, people are exhausted by all the changes in business and their personal lives. They need leaders to provide clear direction and a compelling reason to motivate them to action.
Change Up provides a leadership framework to engage and motivate others to "want" to move in the new direction in these uncertain times.
New results require new behavior. In business, change is the new normal. Yet leaders typically struggle to execute successful change efforts even when armed with a workable strategic vision. What’s often missing is a practical change roadmap that includes the human bridge between strategy and desired results.
You’re Either Inhibiting Change – or Accelerating It - Know when it's time to CHANGE UP!
Leaders encounter many obstacles in leading the changes which will enable organizational success. The HAP Group has proven approaches to lay out a clear path to success not found in change management or leadership books. It’s not about tweaking soft skills or becoming someone you’re not: It’s about creating a pragmatic, shareable plan that others will embrace and execute.
This is a long form text area designed for your content that you can fill up with as many words as your heart desires. You can write articles, long mission statements, company policies, executive profiles, company awards/distinctions, office locations, shareholder reports, whitepapers, media mentions and other pieces of content that don’t fit into a shorter, more succinct space.
Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.
Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.
Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.
Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.

Strategy execution is the name of the game. To deploy a new initiative requires people to step out of their comfort zone and try new approaches.
People either get excited or distracted by organizational changes. More often is it the later, people are distracted, they feel uncertain and may even resist making the changes. A distracted organization can make it difficult to achieve the desired results.
To keep everyone advancing:
• Provide direction
• Communicate consistent, credible messages.
• Be visible, ask questions and listen to the answers.
• Model the new way. Avoid personally slipping back into old habits.
• Resolve issues.
• Reinforce the new way through coaching and feedback.
• Celebrate small victories on a daily basis.
