Transitions are hard. Birth. Death. Marriage. These are all important parts of our lives and why we put so much emphasis around rituals. It’s not even just North America; rituals are prevalent in every part of the world.
It’s also not just our personal lives that have these rituals. At work, we have re-orgs, mergers, acquisitions, major changes in direction, new strategies, new products and more. The best way to handle these is through rituals. It helps employees understand the importance and feel more connected to them. It also improves employee meetings.
