In general, maintaining the status quo is far easier than making a change.
And yet change is usually initiated in order to improve the current state. So the effort is worth it, right?
As you consider improving any situation in your personal or professional life, here are the qualities that successful change management training and consulting initiatives require:
- Keep your eyes on the goal. Stay focused on what you want to achieve and why. This will keep you from getting discouraged as you face challenges along the way.
- Adapt as needed. You will need to be flexible. No change will go quite as you hoped or planned. Be ready to shift tactics here and there as circumstances demand.
- Stay strong. Keep your energy high. You need to keep motivated toward achieving that final objective.
