What are the right questions to ask yourself to manage change at work?
Getting past the emotions of managing change at work.
The right questions can be asked to help alleviate fears, or at the very least, get you ready to accept change in the workplace, knowing that the change will happen regardless of how you’re feeling.
Once you understand the emotions causing your anxiety, anger, or fear about a change, you can start to ask the questions that will help.
If you’re worried about your ability to learn and adopt the new procedures, some questions to consider are:
- What kind of training can I expect on the new procedures?
- How long do I have before going live with the new procedures?
- After going-live, will I run into trouble for mistakes, or will I get support?
The difficulty in getting over the negative emotions associated with giving up old routines and behaviors, and recognizing the advantages of the change, is a common cause of resistance to change at work.
For instance, a modification that initially seems like it would add to your already busy day’s workload, may really wind up saving you time, given the fact that a new automated process is being used.
When handling the shift at work, it’s critical to have an open mind and take responsibility for your own attitude and level of openness towards the change.
