How to Cope with Change
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.
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.
