Change management: Enlist a volunteer army

As change management leaders, we need to do everything we can to ensure the success of our organizations. That includes enlisting the help of a volunteer army.


It’s important to enlist the help of a group of supportive employees to support and deliver the change. Here are a few reasons why:

  • Change can be overwhelming and having a team of people to help manage it can make the process smoother.
  • Having employees involved in the change process can create buy-in and commitment to the change.
  • Employees who are invested in the change process are more likely to be successful in implementing the change.

There are many benefits towards enlisting the help of others which will significantly increase your chance of success.


Change management leaders often find it difficult to build a powerful support team. Here are some techniques for helping to enlist the right people:

  • Try to identify employees who are already invested in the organization and have a positive attitude.
  • Talk to employees about what they would like to see changed in the organization and ask for their help in making that change happen.
  • Be clear about what you need from employees and let them know how their involvement will benefit the organization.

With the right team in place, you’ll be well on your way to successfully implementing change in your organization.


If you’re looking to make a change in your organization, consider enlisting the help of a group of employees to help support and deliver the change. It could make all the difference in the success of your change initiative.
