There's a lot going on right now, am I right? It feels like a good time to talk about how to cope with change, whether at work or in life, particularly through the challenges of Coronavirus and the Covid-19 Pandemic.

It’s so easy to stay in our autopilot mode where change is concerned. We try and suppress our feelings of denial, anger and depression, when better tuning in to what is going on is a much healthier coping strategy to help us ride those waves of change.
Change comes in many shapes and sizes, especially right now; furlough, redundancy, financial concerns and arguably at worst, bereavement. We somehow manage to recover from one shock when *SMACK* another change comes to blindside us and throw us off course.

Never has this been more true than recently with all the 'challenges' we have faced as a result of the Coronavirus Pandemic.

These challenges offer us the opportunity to learn. Learn and reflect about ourselves and how we respond through change and turbulent times and situations.
The Change Curve (Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross), was developed in the 1960’s to help people during the bereavement process. Like so many models, the business-world adopted it because of the similarities in organisational change.

Watch my video below to reflect on how you can develop your response to change through this and any other challenging time that you face!

Change isn't the 'new normal'. It has always been like this. Yes, this is a particularly challenging time for all of us, yet we have faced tough times before and we will face them again. Take some time to reflect on how you currently respond to change and how you can develop those responses to support your mindset and resilience.

I love helping people to develop their mindset, resilience and wellbeing with the videos I produce. If you get anything from them and would like to help keep me going with a nice cuppa (double espresso for me), that would be amazing.

Me and My Auto-Pilot: the origin story

I’ve never really talked at length about my emotional baggage and why I’m so passionate about helping people to switch off their internal auto-pilot to get to a stronger and more resilient mindset, yet like all of us, there is an origin story to be told.

Learning from Failure

Our auto-pilot mode makes it so natural to kick ourselves when we make a mistake, rather than consciously considering the growth that exists in learning from failure.
