Johannesburg - Change within a business is not only an inevitable step in the process of growth, but can also serve as a catalyst for further growth, if managed effectively, according to Claire Simon, consulting psychologist at HR Consultancy Work Dynamics.

In today’s dynamic and fast-paced environment, businesses must adapt or risk becoming obsolete. However, managing change effectively must be viewed as an opportunity to improve rather than a chore, she added. Any change experienced by businesses, whether big or small, is often viewed as turbulent.

“Therefore, it is important to shift focus from change management to change leadership - with a strong emphasis on change readiness. While implementing changes in business can come at a risk, it can come with great rewards too,” said Simon.
