Changing the Rules Of Change

In our work lives, in our personal and family lives, even at school or in the community, responding to change can be a stressful experience. Learning to recognize and embrace the opportunities that arrive on the wings of change is an important skill for navigating the contemporary (ever-changing) lifestyle.
Remember that it’s NORMAL for people to have a range of feelings in response to change – large or small.
Each one of us responds to change differently and uniquely.
Some people have many feelings or reactions, while others do not.
Since a person’s perception of the impact of change is often more stress creating than the change itself, allow yourself (and others) ample opportunity to give and receive clarifying feedback.
Information reduces uncertainty.
