Ceremonialism


We all like to be recognized for our contributions and achievements.  Effective change management looks for opportunities to provide an upward push against the downward spike of the Change Curve with awards and recognition tied to the KASH formula.  Examples include:
  • Certificates for completing training courses designed to deliver “new knowledge”
  • Lapel pins recognizing milestone achievements
  • T-shirts, hats, and/or jackets with goal-oriented messages reinforcing the purpose of the change
  • Cash awards for individual or team accomplishments
Nothing encourages success more than success.  Many a weight loss regime has been given an important boost by an early, quick weight loss.  Setting initial goals that are quickly achievable, and then recognizing their accomplishment through ceremony and awards, reassures those going through a change that “it is working.”
