We are now in a corporate environment where organisational change is a constant and the ability to manage this well is a standard part of doing business. 75% of business transformations are not successful however, and we know why.
Research from McKinsey, Harvard Business Review, Towers Watson and others demonstrate that the people side of change determines the ultimate success for failure of your change program. With a 25 year background in business psychology, we understand this very well, including the neurological factors that influence change readiness, adaptability and resilience.
This is why organisations partner with ALCHEMY across the spectrum of their business transformation.

Change success is built in and hard wired into business transformation in the preparation phase. ALCHEMY supports change success by:
- Advising on the people side of the strategy > structure > staff workflow;
- Reviewing change plans to identify risks and red flags;
- Assessing the organisation's readiness for change with specialised diagnostic tools;
- Collaborating on the communication plan [accounting for whole brain thinking and neurological threats].
When the organisation is ready for a change event such as role redundancy, ALCHEMY supports managers and staff with:
- Separation training sessions for managers; and
- Onsite support for impacted staff on the day of separation.
CAREER TRANSITION COACHING
1:1 career transition programs support individuals through their career transition experience.
While this can be a challenging time for an individual, we have the privilege of supporting them 1:1 and observing their successful transition. ALCHEMY career transition outcomes are updated live here - OUTCOMES LIVE.
Once a well thought out restructure, change or downsizing project has been successfully implemented, the business transformation is about to begin. Remaining staff, teams and managers need to adapt to their own changing role and career which involves creating a new organisation in a challenging environment of uncertainty.
We believe that everyone deserves full support and that includes the remaining organisation. Our purpose is to ensure that staff and managers have the tools and resources that they need to adapt and thrive. This includes:
- Managing change workshops for staff;
- Leading change workshops and coaching for people managers.
Understanding the people side of change is vital for the executive team's situational awareness so we use the same specialised diagnostic tools to assess the organisation's change experience. This provides a barometer of the business as well as specific and critical examples of what management need to do to embed the change and look after staff.
