Coping with Change at Work
Change can be a swine. It can vex you, perplex you, stress you and distress you. Happily, it doesn’t need to be like that. With just a few small tweaks to your coping with change strategy, change can become a refreshing and energising opportunity… a source of drive, rather than dive-for-cover.
Being the amateur philosopher that I am (a title I earned after repeating a quote I read on the back of a Guinness beer mat), I’ve always thought of change as a tide. Firstly, it’ll happen regardless of whether you want it to or not. Secondly, you have a choice. You either decide to go with it and learn how to swim, or you choose to risk drowning by using all your energy trying to resist the inevitable.
