Organizations should strive to have a culture that embraces change. This is important so that when change comes, as it always does, employees would not sabotage the organization because they already operate in a culture that is dynamic. In situations like mergers and acquisitions for example, managers can be sure that employees would be less resistant and would make a smooth transition into new cultures and territories if the culture already promotes development.
One way to go about creating or instilling a culture of openness to change is by sharing information. Managers should strive to keep employees informed of what is happening in the organization, what change is needed, why is the change needed and most importantly how would this change affect them and the organization as a whole. The more empowered persons are the more they embrace the strategic direction of the organization.
