SOFT SKILL: Coping with change 🔄️

· soft-skills,team

Change is part of our world 🌍. In fact, you're going to find out that people that can handle change, succeed best 👍. They're more comfortable with the shifts ↔️, the changes, and the transformations that occur on a daily basis.

Now when change occurs, it isn't always progress 📉, it isn't always an improvement. The trick is to channel your heart 💗, your feelings, and your emotions, and make the change as constructive 👷♂️ as possible. The trick is to make tomorrow better than today, to create the world 🌐 that you want rather than simply letting it happen to you.

Now we start thinking about change and the Kubler-Ross curve. Kübler-Ross was a Swiss American psychiatrist 👩⚕️ and pioneer of studies on dying people, who wrote: “On Death and Dying,”. Her 1969 book 📕 in which she proposed the patient-focused, death-adjustment pattern, the 5️⃣ “Five Stages of Grief.” Those stages are denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.

We can apply that to how people cope with change.

It's not easy to transition. 😩

So her motto shows we move from unawareness.

We generate a vision 🔭 and inspiration that moves us from awareness to what's going to be in the future.

We move into shock and denial: 😲

  • I don't know this can't be.
  • This isn't happening.
  • It's a disaster.

Next, we go to anger and frustration: 😠

  • I'm not comfortable anymore.
  • I can't keep doing things the same way I've done before.

The second phase: this phase of anger and frustration creates:

  • a lot of stress,
  • a lot of tension, and
  • a lot of discomforts.

We move along that grieving process from the present tense to the transitionary tense.

Things aren't going to be the same: 🙆

  • I need to cope.
  • I need to adapt.
  • I need to adjust.
  • I need to be a little bit more agile.
  • I need to make the change myself.

We can either feel dissatisfied, and change is going to drag us along anyway, or I can be a catalyst for change: 🫡

  • I can buy it.
  • I can be committed.

I can refine things I can get involved I can move forward I can move ahead:👍

  • I do training.
  • I see what the possibilities are.
  • I adjust.
  • I bought it.
  • I control I adapt and we move forward.
