“The only thing that is constant is change.” – Heraclitus
Change is ever-present in our lives. We are always growing and evolving, and our situations and circumstances change, sometimes in an instant. Change can be frustrating, hard to understand, and difficult to embrace – especially at work.
When processes, systems, or team structures change, how do you react? Do you openly support change the instant you learn of it, or do you resist in some way? Most people are at least somewhat resistant to changes at work, at least initially. Change often evokes an emotional response. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always serve us well, especially in the workplace.
