Uncertainty is a major source of anxiety during organizational change. Employees have questions related to their roles, how the change will impact them and what the timeline will be. This can make them reluctant to accept the change or to maintain a positive attitude while change takes place.
Leaders play an important role in reducing this uncertainty as they implement change. When they fail to do this, employees can become disillusioned and frustrated. They may lag in their commitment to fully implementing the change, or they may revert back to old habits.
