Take charge of your own change experience.  Change can often be challenging especially when we don't agree with it or the impact is not desirable. Let's take the current viral crisis we all face. There are things that we can do in this change and any other to manage our reaction and the process of acceptance and adoption. Consider the question sequence:




  • What do I know about the change? - Where has that information come from? - Do I know whether it’s true or not?
  • What additional information do I need to understand why the change is occurring? - What do I not know or understand?
  • Where can I get factual information about the change? - Stick with fact-based resources.
  • How do I feel about the change? - Are you feeling upset or anxious? Having trouble sleeping? - Consider using simple Grounding Technique if you are feeling anxious (5-4-3-2-1).
  • How am I impacted by the change? - What am I being asked to do?
  • What’s within and outside my control? - You control your behavior and level of understanding.
  • What will I do to positively contribute to the change? - Don’t transfer your anxiety to others. Focus on what is not changing and what you might gain.
  •  What can I do to proactively help make me comfortable with the change? - Are there things you can start learning now? - How can you get more involved? - Will talking to others help? Bottom line, you are in charge of your own change experience.

Will you choose to be a partner or a victim of change?
