Eight Tips to Help You Adapt to Continuous Change


Are you getting fed up or frustrated with continuous change?

Do you just want the world to stop, however briefly, to let you get a breather?

Have you thought about how to deal with the urgency mindset in your workplace?

Here are eight tips to help you adapt.

Tip #1
Learn along the way. Don’t wait for perfection (or getting it right) before moving forward. Learn from your mistakes.

Tip #2

Go for quick wins to build and maintain momentum, but keep your eye on the big picture.

Tip #3

Maintain a sense of urgency to keep everyone on their toes. Ask your co-workers: “How are we doing; how can we do better?”

Tip #4

Remember that you’re never “there.” Having a personal vision is your roadmap to keeping you on the right path.

Tip #5

Share what you learn. New knowledge enhances an organization’s ability to thrive in a changing economy.

Tip #6

Change is about people and how they not only adapt to circumstances but how they create their future together. If you’re in a leadership position, engage all of your people.

Tip #7

Adopt a high-tech, high-touch approach when you’re dealing with technology. Ensure that technology serves the organization and that people are not serving technology.

Tip #8

When in doubt, take a deep breath and plunge ahead.

Remember, the sun always rises.

Be open to outcome, not attached to it. — Angeles Arrien
