The Cornerstone of Keep Shedding is Our Shedding Philosophy
It is based on a powerful metaphor. Lizards grow by shedding their skin; if they don’t shed, they die! If humans and organizations don’t grow, they die! Shed or You’re Dead®!
The Keep Shedding change strategies hang on the SHED metaphor represented by Lenny the Lizard. Although it looks simplistic at first, trust us, it is very purposeful! We know from published research in neuroscience that metaphors are a strong hook for hanging the content that creates the stickiness needed for change. Our strength is in creating measurable business results by engaging people in a way that leads to huge shifts in their approach to change and reduction in negativity (often a key barrier to change). We are very strategic in preparing people for change!
No matter what systems, plans procedures or technology you have deployed with the hope of creating change, unless you prepared the people to embrace that change, you may have gotten less than the results you had planned. You are not alone, many organizations miss this critical step in the change management process. The good news is that you can regroup and still succeed! The changes did not fail – the uptake failed because people were not personally prepared to embrace change.
