Get Ready for Change
“It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.” Charles Darwin
Time and again, I have witnessed resistance to corporate changes. Is it human nature to resist change? I think one reason that change is so hard is that people do not see it coming. Most of us rarely read journals about social changes, learning changes, economic changes – all things that are clues to how we will have to change. So we aren’t informed as the whys of the need to change. We are buried in doing our job as it is and often feel there isn’t enough time to just get that done! So we rarely look up until something is broken and to fix it will require – wait for it — change. So read magazines from other industries, read about issues in learning, talk to your clients about their businesses and their roadblocks. You will provide them better results at the same time you will see changes coming and you will be more prepared to be agile and take on the change.
