Using ADKAR to Empower the Project Team
In my experience, I feel that members of project teams spend so much time focused on their individual role or responsibility, they forget that they serve a larger role in helping support others with the change. I like sharing the ADKAR model so each member of the team can begin to recognize where resistance is stemming based on questions asked or comments made by others. This knowledge helps empower the team members to connect with the individual(s) to ask questions, opening the conversation, to determine (together) what is needed to help them move forward (awareness, knowledge, ability, etc.). Along with this, as each individual on the team went through the change process themselves, and many in different ways, using their insights and experience to support others in the organization removes the "burden" from the leader and engages the project team even more.
