Survive and thrive through restructures


It is perfectly normal to feel anxious when restructures happens. They affect everyone from leaders and line managers to employees, customers and volunteers.

Organisations can become paralysed by restructures when they are not managed well. A lot of time, energy and attention can be spent internally and this has a negative impact on customers, service and performance. It is likely to leave those remaining in the organisation feeling unsettled and unsure. Critical to the success of any restructure is rapid re-engagement of:

  • Leaders and line managers who often communicate and manage the restructure yet can themselves be disengaged by it

  • Individuals affected by the new structure who are remaining in the organisation and need to re-engage with the new organisation, their role and team

  • Teams who are often re-comprised of different people. They need expert support to re-form effectively building trust and confidence in one and other and the way forward.
