unfreezing, changing, and refreezing. The unfreezing stage is creating and emphasizing the motivation to change. In the changing stage employees are provided with new information, new behavioral models, new processes/procedures, new equipment new technology, or new ways of getting the job done (Kincki & Fugate, 2016, p. 565). The refreezing stage is to be consistent by supporting and reinforcing the change.
My current organization presents every change in a positive light and there is always a motivation behind the change such as employee feedback, data, or this is how we can capture more of this market. There is a lot of positivity and it really helps because the teams love to hear that their opinions/feedbacks were considered before a change was made.
