When is the last time you experienced a change? Last week? Yesterday? Five minutes ago??
Change, of course, is inevitable. We have changes in automation systems, budget changes, technology changes, changes in work schedules, even our patrons change. Our tendency to deny, ignore, or resist change only compounds our stress. And still…change happens.
In Dealing with Change During Tough Times, we will not only discuss the reasons for change, but why most of us resist it. Well learn how to deal with that resistance in others and in ourselves. Along the way, well also discover how to deal with the changes we all face every day.
Session 1, Why Is It So Difficult?, gets right down to the nitty-gritty. Why does it happen and why do I have such a tough time dealing with it? What can I expect when Im hit with yet another big change in my life, my environment, my work? Well also learn how to avoid that energy-draining but natural – resistance trap that is often so easy to step into.
