An infamous philosopher by the name of Socrates once said: “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” This brings us to the topic of change, something that, dare we say, is always changing. Chang is especially prevalent in the workplace: new industry regulations, projects that need to be redirected, new trends, and evolving markets. This month, our company ‘principle of the month’ focused on change management. How you manage change can define your future success. There are many sources offering tips and tools for change management but one thing we fail to talk about is the mentality that goes into reacting and adjusting to change.
This month, we are focusing change management. How you manage change can define your future success. There are many sources offering tips and tools for change management but one thing we fail to talk about is the mentality that goes into reacting and adjusting to these changes.
Be Flexible: Flexibility is key to adapting. Allow yourself to flow with change. This eases the pressure that accompanies change and enables you to adjust.
Be Open: Change can be nerve racking. It’s the idea of the unknown consequences that change brings that can leave us weak at the knees. It’s easy to close ourselves off from change. Don’t let your fear control you. Stay open to change and embrace it with open arms.
Be Broad: Innovation comes from those who come at problems with different angles. Keep yourself from catching a case of tunnel vision. A broad view allows you to see all possibilities and find the top solution.
Keep Talking: Communication is key in everything we do, especially with change. Everyone has their own unique perspective on things. Sharing them opens the door for collaboration and creativity.
