Change is the constant that most of us face. In the workplace change is required. Technology, the economy, and even social factors insist that change will occur.
What can you do?
Create a path
Become a tool
Be a bridge
Expect the unexpected
Build on ideas
Let go of ego
And all of this is just the beginning. Change is required, the status quo is not an option.
When change is about to occur, most people don’t ask how they can help. They ask how it will affect their job or their position.
Change Is Required
Change for the organization will mean change for the individuals. Individuals may have to give something up to support the organization getting to where it needs to be. You may get additional duties and responsibilities. All of those will require personal change.
Most people don’t quickly see how they’ve changed across time. They easily dismiss the kindness, the expertise, the attitude, and the skills they have exhibited each day.
Some things are hard to measure like the expertise of perception they develop after big risks, long hauls, and hard falls.
Their persistence and tenacity have grown, changed, and developed.
Change is a daily battle. Someone sees the success.
Your team needs you. Change is required.
