When organizational policies and practices disturb our patterns, it can be stressful and usually perceived as negative. This is because it disrupts our personal order of things.
Here’s a “Rethink.” Your attitude determines the effect of any change, so consider the following:
- Look for the upside of conflicts that reveal deeper reasons for the change, or why a policy might be improving situations that you haven’t considered.
- Allow for time to either reduce or resolve your issue.
- Wait for leadership to take modifying or corrective action.
- Most of all, direct yourself to become the stable voice in this time of disruption. You’ll gain a measure of success by facing the reality of change.
