Understanding Change - Part 6

What would be useful to know of / have when dealing with change?

Main thought - CRYSTAL BALL

This question gave me some great insight into why the people I spoke to had dealt so well with transition and change.  What they wanted to know was what the outcome of change would be and then decide how they would control their destiny and choices.

One point that came through was not to go blindly in to any change.  Also there was a lot of thinking about the people who made up their team that they had around them.

There were some neutral aspects around knowing and understanding the change in terms of timescale, financial implications, researching the pro's and con's in order to understand the medium and long term progress and have as much information in order to make a decision and be able to manage it.

Everyone has a team of people around them and having a mentor, someone who will share their experience with them and help guide them through is invaluable.  Knowing the people who can help and picking the right people to be involved. Know who is doing what and when and that they are confident and competent in their role.

As individuals it is about knowing where they are starting from and what the goal is at the end.  Believing in the change and having understanding in where you are going to get to.  People expected the unexpected and thought about the speed of change while they learnt, adapted and grew.  They all made a change by knowing why they wanted the change. It is understanding how they provoke thinking in others for them to take forward.  It's about having a good attitude to change.

Ask Yourself?
