5 TIPS 
for Embracing 
Change at Work
PRESENTED BY
In life and in the workplace, change 
is an inevitable fact of life. 
Fear of the unknown may make you 
react adversely to change, but if you 
learn to anticipate and even embrace 
it, you’ll find adapting to change is a 
great skill to master.
“Most people view change as 
something that will impair them 
rather than enable unseen 
opportunities. What they fail to realize 
is that change is one of the most 
powerful professional development 
tools available to them.” 
-Glenn Llopis

WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO 
embrace change?
As you face any upcoming transition, 
keep these five tips in mind: 
1. Be proactive 
2. Ask questions 
3. Be flexible 
4. Keep working 
5. Be positive
1. Be 
Proactive 
When change is in the air, look for ways to 
take action, be proactive, and remain 
actively engaged as you transition into a 
new situation.
“People who are proactive don’t sit 
around waiting for answers to appear, 
they stand up, put one foot in front of 
the other, and find the answers. They 
don’t wait for someone to hand them 
an instruction manual and a box of 
tools; they’re resourceful.”

2. Ask 
Questions 
Open communication between team 
members and managers and employees is 
critical in times of change. Don’t let rumors 
lead you astray—ask for clear direction or 
clarification when something is unclear. 
Source: http://www.businessknowhow.com/manage/leadwithin.htm
Ineffective communication 
can make people feel 
uninformed, 
which can cause unnecessary 
stress in the workplace. 
notes SEND
“Our historical perspective is that of the 
frontiers person, but at the same time we 
want structures to protect us so that while 
we're out there practicing our frontier 
individualism we don't get hurt. We want all 
the upside and we want to factor out the 
downside; we want 15 percent annualized 
return on our portfolios in the stock market, 
but not take on any risk.'' 
-Dr. Donald G. MacGregor

not-near.html
3. Be 
Flexible X X 
Change means disrupting your original 
routine. The key is learning how to be 
flexible in adapting to change. According 
to Techrepublic.com, employees will 
become more successful if they embrace 
the change through a can-do attitude. 
X
“..take a look at the requirements of the 
new situation...what skills, from your old 
role, can you apply to the new situation? 
In other words, instead of focusing on 
differences, focus on similarities.” 
Source: http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/10-things/10-tips-for-dealing-with-change-in-the-workplace/
4. Keep 
Working 
Use this time to reaffirm your 
commitment and value to the 
company. Your work can shine during 
this transitional period.

of-change-at-work/2/
5. Be 
Positive 
Although it is not always easy, when 
negative thoughts seep into the workplace, 
they can be detrimental to your point of 
view much later down the road.
Chrissy Scivicque of Forbes.com explains: 
“Let go of the feelings you have 
associated with the old way of doing 
things. Comfort can be more emotional 
than rational. Remember that you’re 
endlessly adaptable and that growth 
almost always comes with discomfort.” 
Source: http://www.forbes.com/sites/work-in-progress/2011/07/18/learning-to-love-change-in-the-workplace/
In fact, having the right attitude could give you 
more opportunities to advance your career. 
By taking on new changes with a positive, 
proactive, and flexible attitude, you will stand out 
as an adaptable and capable employee. This can 
positively impact your growth in your company 
and in the industry as well. These positive results 
change can bring can reaffirm why change is such 
an important process.
PINNACLE EXPLAINS: 
“Businesses thrive when they embrace 
change. The same holds true for individuals. 
You can meet job competition head-on by 
developing and taking opportunities as they 
come. In addition, adapting your work style 
to meet the changes of a workplace 
environment makes you a valuable 
co-worker and team member.” 
Source: http://pinnacle.jobs/4-ways-to-embrace-change-in-the-workplace
“Remember that you’re endlessly adaptable 
and that growth almost always comes with 
discomfort. Learn to simply go with the flow 
and see where the wave takes you.”

5 Tips for Embracing Change at Work

  • 1. 5 TIPS for Embracing Change at Work
  • 3. In life and in the workplace, change is an inevitable fact of life. Fear of the unknown may make you react adversely to change, but if you learn to anticipate and even embrace it, you’ll find adapting to change is a great skill to master.
  • 4. “Most people view change as something that will impair them rather than enable unseen opportunities. What they fail to realize is that change is one of the most powerful professional development tools available to them.” -Glenn Llopis Source: http://www.forbes.com/sites/glennllopis/2012/11/05/5-most-effective-ways-to-sell-change/
  • 5. WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO embrace change?
  • 6. As you face any upcoming transition, keep these five tips in mind: 1. Be proactive 2. Ask questions 3. Be flexible 4. Keep working 5. Be positive
  • 7. 1. Be Proactive When change is in the air, look for ways to take action, be proactive, and remain actively engaged as you transition into a new situation.
  • 8. “People who are proactive don’t sit around waiting for answers to appear, they stand up, put one foot in front of the other, and find the answers. They don’t wait for someone to hand them an instruction manual and a box of tools; they’re resourceful.” Source: http://www.eatyourcareer.com/2010/08/how-be-proactive-at-work-step-system/
  • 9. 2. Ask Questions Open communication between team members and managers and employees is critical in times of change. Don’t let rumors lead you astray—ask for clear direction or clarification when something is unclear. Source: http://www.businessknowhow.com/manage/leadwithin.htm
  • 10. Ineffective communication can make people feel uninformed, which can cause unnecessary stress in the workplace. notes SEND
  • 11. “Our historical perspective is that of the frontiers person, but at the same time we want structures to protect us so that while we're out there practicing our frontier individualism we don't get hurt. We want all the upside and we want to factor out the downside; we want 15 percent annualized return on our portfolios in the stock market, but not take on any risk.'' -Dr. Donald G. MacGregor Source: http://www.nytimes.com/2000/07/30/nyregion/things-people-choose-fear-usually-they-are-unknown-uncontrolled- not-near.html
  • 12. 3. Be Flexible X X Change means disrupting your original routine. The key is learning how to be flexible in adapting to change. According to Techrepublic.com, employees will become more successful if they embrace the change through a can-do attitude. X
  • 13. “..take a look at the requirements of the new situation...what skills, from your old role, can you apply to the new situation? In other words, instead of focusing on differences, focus on similarities.” Source: http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/10-things/10-tips-for-dealing-with-change-in-the-workplace/
  • 14. 4. Keep Working Use this time to reaffirm your commitment and value to the company. Your work can shine during this transitional period. Source: http://www.forbes.com/sites/jacquelynsmith/2013/01/18/12-tips-for-overcoming-your-fear- of-change-at-work/2/
  • 15. 5. Be Positive Although it is not always easy, when negative thoughts seep into the workplace, they can be detrimental to your point of view much later down the road.
  • 16. Chrissy Scivicque of Forbes.com explains: “Let go of the feelings you have associated with the old way of doing things. Comfort can be more emotional than rational. Remember that you’re endlessly adaptable and that growth almost always comes with discomfort.” Source: http://www.forbes.com/sites/work-in-progress/2011/07/18/learning-to-love-change-in-the-workplace/
  • 17. In fact, having the right attitude could give you more opportunities to advance your career. By taking on new changes with a positive, proactive, and flexible attitude, you will stand out as an adaptable and capable employee. This can positively impact your growth in your company and in the industry as well. These positive results change can bring can reaffirm why change is such an important process.
  • 18. PINNACLE EXPLAINS: “Businesses thrive when they embrace change. The same holds true for individuals. You can meet job competition head-on by developing and taking opportunities as they come. In addition, adapting your work style to meet the changes of a workplace environment makes you a valuable co-worker and team member.” Source: http://pinnacle.jobs/4-ways-to-embrace-change-in-the-workplace
  • 19. “Remember that you’re endlessly adaptable and that growth almost always comes with discomfort. Learn to simply go with the flow and see where the wave takes you.” -CHRISSY SCIVICQUE Source: http://www.forbes.com/sites/work-in-progress/2011/07/18/learning-to-love-change-in-the-workplace/
