We’ve all been through it. Someone has a new idea for how to improve your organization. It might be a process change, a policy shift, a new plan or maybe a reorganization. It gets developed, introduced and put in place. People go through the motions for a while, but it never really takes hold. Soon it breaks downs, and things go right back to where they were – or worse. It might not have been a bad idea, but it never really had a chance because of the way it was developed and implemented. What’s the solution? The Treer Group approach.
The Treer Group’s approach is a time-tested process for improving a company or organization through meaningful, lasting change that comes from within. It is a fundamental transformation that is integrated into the organizational culture, is owned by the stakeholders it affects and is sustainable over time.
Why is The Treer Group’s approach so effective? Here are the five key success factors that make it work, and help your company change for good:
Assessment – eliminating the guesswork greatly increases the probability and degree of success you will have in improving your organization’s performance. We offer an array of powerful testing tools that assess your company, teams and individuals. The information and insights they provide identify key issues and start us off on the right path.
Discovery – no one knows more about your organization than you and your people. That is why we act as facilitators and coaches to help you discover your needs and opportunities. With guidance and shaping, these evolve into focused, workable solutions, owned by everyone.
Implementation – implementing solutions is not one-dimensional at The Treer Group. That’s because research has proven that people learn and adapt far better through spaced repetition of ideas than through a single event. Most of our solutions are implemented over several weeks, with regular working sessions and reinforcing exercises and materials.
Team Involvement – whenever possible, we establish interactive team involvement and exercises that facilitate acceptance, operationalize change and build buy-in.
Reinforcement – change is most sustainable when it is reinforced over a significant period of time. We schedule periodic follow-up sessions and activities for a year or more to ensure that your organization does not drift back or away from the planned direction.
According to psychological research, we forget most new ideas after just one day and remember less than 50% of what we heard. After two days, it drops to 25%, and to 2% after 16 days. Spaced repetition can increase retention to as high as 62% for sixteen years or longer. – RAC Statistics
