Friday’s Change Reflection Quote Leadership of Change® Organisational Silos Must Be Eradicated

"For change to be successful, organisational silos must be eradicated quickly and ruthlessly. This is one change sponsor task that cannot be delayed or evaded"

👏 Happy Friday!


On this day, March 10, 1920, the Home Rule Act was passed by the British Parliament, dividing Ireland into two parts. On the previous day of the first reading, the UK Cabinet had capitulated to Ulster Unionist demands and redefined “Northern Ireland” as comprising six counties rather than nine. It was rejected by the southern counties and caused more than a century of turmoil.

Charles Stewart Parnell told us in 1885, “No man has a right to fix the boundary of the march of a nation; no man has a right to say to his country - thus far shalt thou go and no further.” Northern Ireland was created in May 1921, when Ireland was partitioned by the Government of Ireland Act 1920, creating a devolved government for the six north-eastern counties. A nine-county Ulster parliament with a slim Protestant majority created unease among Unionists as it would include a large Catholic population of 43 percent. A six-county alternative was proposed instead, incorporating Antrim, Down, Armagh, Londonderry, Fermanagh, and Tyrone, creating a 34 percent Catholic population, excluding Cavan, Donegal, and Monaghan with Catholic majorities. Thus, the silo of Northern Ireland was created, causing many years of troubles, tragedies, and a split nation to suit a minority. Similarly, this happens in organisational change when some silo leaders put their needs ahead of the majority and change. Organisational Silos Must Be Eradicated Quickly.

👉 The inherent problems that silos cause during normal day-to-day operations make successful change and full employee change adoption highly unlikely. Some of the problems that silos cause are:

• Limited Collaboration: Silos make it difficult for collaboration to occur across the organisation. Collaboration is a key success factor of a high performing organisation, enabling good productivity and team working. Collaboration involves multifunctional teams working together, sharing resources and expertise across the organisation to develop new solutions and ways of working. Strong collaboration is a non-negotiable enabler of successful organisational change.

• Poor Communication: Silos make it difficult for organisations to have good communication, which is essential for a high performing organisation. Poor communication usually results in business problems. Effective change communication is at the heart of successful change, it acts like the blood in our bodies, but instead of supplying vital oxygen and nutrients, communication supplies information and motivation to the impacted stakeholders.


Have a fantastic weekend with the ones you love and care for, enjoy some fresh air, exercise, eat, drink and be happy.
