Isn’t it normal to experience fear & anxiety when faced with change? Is it really possible to not just survive but thrive in constant change?? The answer is YES – to both of these questions.
Yes, you will experience a range of emotions as you go through the change curve – from shock & anxiety, anger, fear & frustration, confusion & stress to acceptance, energy & enthusiasm.
And yes, it is possible to thrive in constant change by building your change muscle. In a workshop with SalesWomentoring – India’s first & only community Inspiring women to Succeed at Selling last week, I shared 5 essential shifts for #changeleadership :
🚀 𝐒𝐡𝐢𝐟𝐭 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐑𝐞𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐭𝐨 #Reflection
Understand that it is normal to have an emotional reaction to change. Create time & space to process your #emotions & understand what this change really means for you. A balanced emotional & cognitive state will accelerate your change journey.
🚀 𝐒𝐡𝐢𝐟𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐚𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐧𝐠𝐞𝐬 𝐭𝐨 #Opportunities
Cut through the noise to see the bigger picture ahead & identify opportunities this change could bring. Disruption of status quo can be a chance to discover your higher #purpose and the freedom to design your next step aligned with your #strengths & #values.
🚀 𝐒𝐡𝐢𝐟𝐭 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐈𝐬𝐨𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐭𝐨 #Connections
While experiencing uncertainty, a natural response is to withdraw. However, this is the time to #reach out, ask for the support you need and leverage others’ thinking & experience. Connecting with others will help you test your ideas and build your #resilience by reducing burnout, anxiety & fatigue.
🚀 𝐒𝐡𝐢𝐟𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐟𝐨𝐜𝐮𝐬 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐰𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐜𝐚𝐧𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐭𝐨 𝐰𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐂𝐀𝐍 𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐫𝐨𝐥
Worrying about things that you have no control over will make you feel helpless & like a victim of circumstances. Instead, focus on things you CAN control to feel empowered and enhance your ability to think critically & find #solutions.
🚀 𝐒𝐡𝐢𝐟𝐭 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐃𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐨 #Wellbeing
To sustain change leadership, you need to stay #agile in thought & action, and bring people along. Resist the urge to add more to your day. Make your wellbeing a priority. A healthy physical, mental & emotional state will enable you to manage stress, think strategically, create & communicate your vision, take the right decisions & be a role model to others.
