ENERGISE Webinar - Information and Resources

We all need a reason to change, something that motivates us right now.

In the next in our series of five webinars, we explore the 'ENABLE' element of the 5E Model.

The Applied Change 5E Model focuses attention on the fundamental elements that make up a holistic model for effective change, just 5 elements that, when performing well, are proven through science and practical experience to deliver successful outcomes. 

 

The first element is ENERGISE.

 

This is the basic fuel for change. It’s about creating a desire. We all need a good reason to change something, especially if it is important to us. Staying as we are normally feels more comfortable unless we are dissatisfied, and even then can feel like the safer option. Change involves risk and so the reason to do it needs to be compelling enough for everyone involved or affected to make that risk worth taking.

See the videos below for a taster of the ENERGISE themes we covered in the first webinar.

Step One: Creating a compelling vision that moves people
 
There is a world of difference between good intentions and actually taking the actions needed. The drive to change usually comes from an emotional place, not a rational one.
 
A compelling vision transcends our differences and unites us to a common cause.
Step Two: A sense of shared purpose
 
A key aspect of motivation for change is the feeling that we're all in it together working towards a common goal. If we feel that some people are not acting in line with that shared purpose it quickly builds distrust and undermines motivation.
 
When we truly work together we can achieve almost anything.
 
 
Step Three: Create a strong sense of urgency
 
Despite our best intentions, things that we believe are important often don't get our attention. Other things - more interest, more urgent, more important in the moment - distract us.

Rather than getting frustrated, help others to see what's in it for them, for the organisation, for customers, for society.
 

Step Four: Alignment with personal values

 

Our personal values (our sense of how things ought to be) drive our thoughts and behaviours. A key part of getting people motivated to do something is to show how it helps them to achieve something they already believe in.

Step Five: Motivation to act Vs stay as we are
 
Change involves effort, risk and uncertainty and tends to move us away from our comfort zone. In order to make change happen, the motivation to change must be significantly greater than the easy and safe option of doing nothing.
