It takes you out of your comfort zone, shakes things up and leaves you seeking your new equilibrium.
We can choose change, or change can happen in our world or perhaps around us.
Our primal goal in life is to keep ourselves safe. It’s part of our innate wiring keeping us safe from being eaten by predators, hit by cars and all manner of situations.
However it can also get in our way.
The neural pathways for safety are strong, well used superhighways of messaging and they serve us well.
Change that doesn’t feel ‘safe’ can be like taking an unknown exit off that superhighway to what seems like a super sketchy unsealed road you’ve never traveled down and it can feel uncomfortable, so freaking uncomfortable.
As neuro plastic beings we can choose to create a new pathway.
It might feel like bush bashing at first until the path through the grass let’s us through, until it is well trodden and gradually gets easier and easier to walk eventually allowing us to calmly use that path with ease.
Change is important to consider not only for yourself but your team.
When you lead a team you need to consider their adjustment to change, their reactions and responses and how you can support the transition.
Not only do you need to adjust they do to and, they may not have chosen it. And even if they did it might not feel comfortable at first.
