HR Matters Forum – The role of internal consultancy in business change.

HR Matters Forum: Confidence, Resilience and Performance 1

Most organisations are asking questions about the future of their operations due the effects of the pandemic.  For some the last 18 months have seen huge growth and opportunity, for others it’s been about getting through it and surviving. Let’s face it: Even without a pandemic to contend with, change and transformation is challenging. No matter how sophisticated your plans, initiatives fail because of a myriad of reasons from lack of buy-in, change exhaustion through to not tapping into the DNA of your organisation.

And in the middle of this is you, the internal change consultant – a role that must rank as one of the trickiest in an organisation. 

Being part of the organisation brings both advantages and disadvantages: whilst having a strong understanding of prevailing cultural norms, internal agents may also be ‘blind’ to them. With often only their own personal power and influence as tools, internal consultants may also fail to account for the extent to which they contribute to sustaining the culture, which they hope to change.  At the same time you need to balance being “one of the team” in one hand to “internal consultant” in the other.

Join us at our next HR Matters event on 17 November 2021 from 8.30am to 10.30am (UK Time).
