As we are transitioning to a new calendar year, there might be changes happening at your workplace. It could be new coworkers, new boss, new software systems or new company policies etc. How do you usually cope with these changes?

Here are some tips:

  • 🤔Keep an open mind: we usually prefer to stay where we were if it was working for us. So there might be some resistance for any new changes. Try to keep an open mind and challenge yourself to step out of your comfort zone when embracing the changes.
  • Ask lots of questions: communications are so important when it comes to changes. Make sure to be very honest and ask lots of questions about the roles, directions, potential impact to get yourself prepared for the situation.
  • 📝Repetition is key: if you are the change maker, don’t be afraid to repeat all the new changes. There is no over communications on these changes. So make sure to create all kinds of reminders and reinforcements to make sure people feel ready for the change.
  • ❤️Give yourself some space and time: give yourself some time and space and admit that it can be hard to keep up with the changes. Don’t be too harsh on yourself to jump to the new reality too soon. Take it easy!

What changes are you seeing at your company this year? Was it easy for you to adjust? How did you cope with the change?

Keep an open and always try to be flexible. Change can be difficult but I also think change can be good. Having a positive attitude always helps.

Nothing changes, actually; whatever new policy they've come up with people go back to doing the same old thing within a short time.
