Life is full of change. How we accept that change makes a big difference. Change is constant. Sometimes it is good and sometimes it is bad. How we approach it with our attitude may make it better or unbearable.
Why do you think it is hard for some to accept change and for others they just roll with it?
Who do you think is more successful? The people who do not accept change or the ones who do accept it? Why?
Change is like a butterfly. It flutters around until it finds a sweet spot. ~ Patti

Staying stuck in refusing to change usually means: Nothing changes! It’s helpful to see what the resistance is about…and explore that idea with God and with one other friend. Thank you for encouraging me to think about this!

Change can leave us feeling helpless, out of control. Remembering who my God is in the midst of it always helps.
Thanks, Kim for your insight! 🙂
Change is such a difficulty blessed thing, isn’t it? I have often said if we can teach our children than change is the norm and consistency is a blessing we would handle life much better through the years. I find it so interesting that we are created beings who crave consistency but live in this ever changing world. No doubt it is to keep us dependent on the Lord!
Thank you, Rayna for your comments and thoughts on change. 🙂
Accepting/Adopting workplace change is determined by the details of the change itself and the impact to the employees being asked to change.
Example: Implementing free fruit in the workplace cafeteria is an easy change to accept. Implementing a business process change that requires interfacing with new software tools, or new groups of people can increase throughput time and potentially stress people out that are held responsible to meet deadlines. Having been a change manager in IT company … change is not only communication, training, but understanding the potential resistance and perspectives of the individual employee. There are many reasons people resist change here is a list.
Misunderstanding about the need for change/ when the reason for the change is unclear.
Fear of the unknown.
Lack of competence.
Connected to the old way.
Not being consulted.
Changes to routines.
Change in the status quo.
Benefits and rewards.
Thank you for sharing your perspective and expertise on change in the workplace. 🙂
