Editor's Notes

  1. These are useful hints and tips that will allow us all to cope with change. Use handout 2. We only have full power over our own actions. For changes that are forced on you, try and accept that some things are going to be out of your control. It goes without saying that keeping an open mind is crucial, and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Visualise a good ending, then think of how to achieve the ending as you have visualised it. Think of good examples of change that has worked well for you. You come first, so look after yourself and get necessary support from all available sources. Don’t be afraid to ask for help Talk about it, it helps! There are many websites and information online dedicated to change management. Identify more opportunities that the change will bring. It is a bit hard but remaining positive is definitely helpful. If you are struggling, don’t keep quiet about it, seek help. Finally, focusing on a very good outcome and a new beginning can work like magic.
  2. Many people approach change as if they were holding their breath. They try to freeze the present, hold things static, and resist change in an attempt to control the world around them. teams, our families, and our communities are alive. They live, breathe, and change every day. They need movement. The purpose of work for each of us is to create movement, to produce some sort of change for the organization. Without movement toward its goals, the organization will suffocate.
  3. After holding your breath, your body needs to breathe faster and more often to reach a state of equilibrium. Successful adjustment to change is not just movement, it’s movement with predictability. We know what will happen when we exhale. We will take a breath, and then another, and another. There is a predictable rhythm there that we know will sustain us, give us something solid to rely upon, and help us reorient ourselves after the initial shock of change. It’s much harder to adjust to change if there’s nothing familiar in sight at the other end. Challenge your group to think about how they can use the rhythm of their own life activities to make their adjustment to change smoother.
  4. Think of a change that you recently experienced. Did you like that change? Or you happy with it? Does it matter if you like it or not?
  5. In 1831, common carp were imported into North America. Less than two centuries later, they make up most of the biomass of fish in the Mississippi River. They uproot aquatic plants important to other fish and waterfowl and stir up sediments, releasing nutrients and other pollutants trapped there. Today, new invaders threaten further ecological disruption. http://www.bellmuseum.org/invasive_carp.html
  6. Self-awareness is the first step ….being aware of your reactions/emotions is the key….
