There's a lot going on right now, am I right? It feels like a good time to talk about how we can better help ourselves to cope with change, 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.
