“How can I lead others through change when I have no clarity myself?”
“I can’t motivate my team to go through yet another transition!”
“In this safe space I want to admit that I am exhausted dealing with all these changes!”
These are sound bytes from a recent group coaching session. Yes, change fatigue is a thing & it’s on the rise. Chances are you have felt it too. To an even greater degree if you are an executive responsible for leading others.
When faced with change that is perpetual & potentially disruptive, traditional change management approaches prove ineffective.

Change endurance is about learning to tap into your inner resourcefulness.
To enable this, I designed a self-reflection exercise. It helped the leaders to process their thoughts & emotions regarding the change, identify their resistance, adopt a positive attitude and have a clear idea of next steps.
Sharing the exercise in the visual below.

What became clear for you?
What else have you done to lead yourself & others through constant change?
