The Peaceful
Change Management Program

Whether your organization is downsizing, scaling up, or implementing new systems, change can be scary and disruptive to your team members, leading to unhealthy conflict and unintended consequences. That’s why peace-oriented change management is so critical.

Peaceful change management typically involves a combination of conflict management methods, such as individual and team coaching, dialogue facilitation, and training that aim to reduce unhealthy conflict, build buy-in and engagement toward change, and reduce organizational risk.

While each situation is unique, below are the typical steps to our Peaceful Change Management program.

Consulting with Leadership

Every change management effort begins with consultations between our peacebuilders and the leadership team. These sessions serve as a deep dive into the reasons for change, the goals for change, and the messaging to staff.

Facilitated Dialogue & Training

Based on the leadership consultations, we determine who to involve in team dialogue sessions, facilitated by the peacebuilder, and which types of training are necessary, if any. The goal will be to reconcile grievances and skepticism, address worries and concerns, and ultimately create motivation and buy-in toward change.

Individual & Team Coaching

In addition to training and dialogues, the peacebuilder may have a series of coaching sessions with groups or individuals who need training reinforcement and/or additional support in staying engaged with the change processes. Maintaining trust through disruptive change is an incredibly important process, which requires consistent support and encouragement.

What is Peaceful Change Management?

Peaceful change management consulting is a process that involves a variety of conflict management methods aimed at both reducing risk and enhancing employee engagement toward change.

It is both an acute and systemic approach to building and sustaining peace during turbulent times, which may have to do with massive downsizing and layoffs, scaling up and shifts in organizational hierarchy, major implementation of new systems and processes, and everything in between.

Change processes in organizations can feel worrisome and demoralizing to team members, which makes peace-oriented change management processes so critical.
