This is associated with major changes such as programs and large projects that expect some degree of resistance to change. In this context, change management is primarily a communication and performance management process that seeks to boost employee motivation and support for change. Leaders communicate the urgent business drivers for change and ask for feedback and support. Concerns are discussed and employee feedback incorporated into the initiative. Leaders may also work to support those who drive change and sideline those who resist it.
