In today’s business world, not only is change the norm, but the speed of change continues to accelerate. Dealing with change and leading others through it can be challenging, and resilience can help you rise to the challenge.
The idea that anything ever remains constant is an illusion, yet people struggle with change, even when it’s positive. One way to be resilient in times of change is to be present. The only place and time we can deal with change is here and now. We can shift our perspective about the change from outside-in (what others are doing to me) to inside-out (how I can change to adapt to the situation). By increasing our resilience, we can handle anything that life throws at us by changing, adapting and growing.
EXECUTIVE LEADERSHIP ACTION PLAN:
How do you currently respond to change?
What can you do to improve your resilience?
“I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.”
