Despite the extensive body of literature examining the need for readiness for change and commitment, there has been limited research linking factors that can increase the level of individual readiness for change in order to appreciate commitment. This study posits that adequate consideration of the dimensions of managerial skills will benefit organisations in order to increase the impact of individual readiness for change and bridge the gap between organisational commitments. The aim of this paper is to investigate the integrative influence of managerial skills and their impact on the level of individual readiness for change. Data were collected from 160 managers in Nigerian organisations. All respondents were organisational personnel responsible for impacting on commitment or involved with strategic decisions for performance improvement, and thereof filled out the structured questionnaire. Increasing individual readiness for change is based on a thoughtful consideration and implication of the dimensions of managerial skills rather than just focusing on one skill.
