Americans move more than 11 times in their lifetimes, based on multiple Experts such as the US Census Bureau, The Atlantic, and Move.org. Moving creates disruption in one’s life and can be quite stressful. A move is time demanding, requires additional expense, and takes time and energy.
Is it any wonder that folks do not like changes in the work place? Like a physical move, change can be frustrating, disruptive, and waste time and energy. Change, however, can be positive if it is effectively managed. Change can:
- Encourage creativity
- Reduce complacency
- Stretch our thinking
- Produce action
Managing change in this ever-changing world is crucial for an organization’s ongoing success. Establishing methods to understand what changes are occurring (or will occur) is essential. Sometimes, all that is needed is to utilize a dedicated or an external Resource to ensure change reaps those positive benefits that are desired.
Making those changes can reap exceptional results. As John C. Maxwell said so well, “Change is inevitable. Growth is optional.”
