If you have ever been an employee of an organization that was bought, especially if you were bought by a large multinational public company, in most cases it is unbelievably painful. Not getting enough information in some cases, way too much in others and all of the stuff that unexpectedly happens can be very disruptive and counterproductive. Processes change, goals are dramatically altered, and it seems very arbitrary. It is devastating to morale.
One of our clients has been bought by two different organizations in the last 10 years. Each time this has been painful and created a sense of distrust at all levels of the organization. We were hired to help assist in the recovery of relationships at all levels.
As usual, we were very successful in working with this client in healing up the morale and getting results back on track. We then continued to work with them to drive an even higher level of results globally.
However, the pain and agony of being acquired twice has paid off wonderfully.
Some of their strategic plan is based on organic growth. However, much of their strategic results need to come from acquisition.
The wisdom learned, what to do and not do, if you are acquiring an organization, has allowed them to build a powerful due diligence process as well as create an on-boarding acquisition team to maximize the synergy of the organization’s cultures and results quickly. It has made it much more fun to do acquisitions, increase the success rate and has sped up the payback on the investment.
The reason we are sharing this with you is that in our personal and business lives, many of us go through painful events. However, as you go through the events, rather than just getting through them as an endurance contest, you will invariably find that later on, the wisdom learned can be very valuable.
