By Patti Hathaway   Printer Friendly Version

1. You'll miss out on the potential for career opportunities with the new organization. Your company is looking for forward thinking change agents. You have the opportunity to be viewed as a valuable contributor and one who will have a place in the organization.

2. You'll miss out on the chance to learn new skills which can make you more marketable. Get used to feeling incompetent and confused for a time in order to learn new skills which will help you in the future.

3. You'll get smarter. There is scientific proof that changing our patterns and ways of doing things creates new neural pathways which make you smarter.

4. You'll miss out on the opportunity to expand your network and your ability to develop new relationships. Keep in mind, it's not what you know but who you know that matters.

5. You'll miss out on the possibility of shaping your destiny and reality. If you get on board quickly with the changes, you may be able to create a need and select employees to help you fill the need. Be purposeful as you explore your options.


1. Learn all you can about your organizational changes. Read industry information so you can anticipate changes in your own organization. Always think bigger picture.

2. Break old habits such as how you drive to work and which hand you brush your teeth with. Learn to regularly get uncomfortable so that when a bigger change occurs you are used to the discomfort of the little things.

3. Develop and implement specific stress management strategies in your life to lessen the impact.

4. Limit changes in the part of your life (personal or work) that is not affected by change.

5. Whine with purpose. Give constructive criticism and provide specific recommendations for how to make the changes in your organization work.
