CHANGE! Series: Understand Change

Let's face it: change isn't easy. Whether the change is positive or negative, chosen or imposed, it almost always causes stress, uncertainty, and general unease. Leaders need to be aware of the challenge change presents to their employees, whether dealing with lay-offs, mergers, retirement, or other changes in structure or approach.

The first step in learning to deal with change is understanding how it works and what it looks like. Here are a few things to consider:


- Changes have a beginning, middle an end, but begin with an ending!

- To begin the change process, you need to let go of old ways and old ideas. Say goodbye to the past with confidence.

- The middle can be very chaotic, ambiguous and scary. Uncertainty is high. It may take a leap of faith to get through it.

- Looking back at how you have successfully dealt with change in the past can help you go through change in the present. It can also help you lead other people through change.

- How quickly and easily people go through the change process can depend on whether the change is imposed by outside forces (budget, management) or as a result of a personal conscious choice. It can impact whether the outcome will be positive on negative.

 

If you are facing change, be able to define the specific change you are involved with and connect it to your vision.
 


CHANGE is more acceptable:

  • When the reasons for it are understood.
  • When it does not threaten needs.
  • When those affected help to create it.
  • When it follows previous successful changes.
  • When inaugurated after prior change has been assimilated-not during confusion of other ones.
  • When planned rather than reactive.
  • To people who will share in the benefits of the change.
