Mergers and acquisitions…. You hear it daily. Especially banks and insurance companies are targets today. During this period of change, people feel uncertain, rumours start, jealousy arizes when people will loose their jobs, new colleagues are distrusted.
While the top management for obvious strategic reasons cannot transparently communicate its changes to all levels, it is important to keep understanding high between people so as to keep unity and the level of efficiency and productivity,
The financial department of Generali-Victoria was challenged recently with such a merger. As part of the change management, Marc J de Turck was invited as guest speaker on a seminar on communication in a challenging, changing environment.
Marc stressed the understanding between people and its 3 elements (Affinity, Reality and Communication, based on the works of L. Ron Hubbard). In a funny and dynamic way he gave the attendees tools to better understand each other in a challenging new environment.
The results will be visible in a couple of months.
Todays turbulent world makes it hard for company collaborators to easily understand each other’s tasks, purposes, responsibilities.
This is especially true between the sales and production people.
Misunderstanding reflects inside and outside the company and eventually brings about less growth and prosperity.
This was also one of the challenges which one of our clients faced.
That is why the General Manager of Eltrade (Big Cash register company in Bulgaria) insisted on an internal and external communication seminar to be held to ALL his staff.
IDEAS FreeBoss was invited to deliver a 2 day seminar on internal and external communication and understanding.
Marc J. de Turck stressed on the 3 elements of understanding, Affinity, Reality and Communication (based on the works of L.R.Hubbard).
He stressed the attention on the emotions and what some call emotional intelligence in understanding and communicating.
The results are already visible in the team.
