Are You Ready to Change? Managing Change.

Change is about people. Most  people do not like change.
Change involves hard work and risk:

  • Will I succeed?
  • Will I need new skills?
  • Will I still have a job/a partner/a family after the change?
The big question: What exactly do you want to change about your life? Click here.
Change succeeds when:

N X V X C X F > R
N= need for change. How much pain and threat do you experience with the way things are at the moment?

V= vision of the end result. Do you see the benefits of change?

C= capability and credibility. Do you have a successful track record of change?

F= first steps. Do you have some practical first steps that build momentum, achieve some early wins and build confidence?

R= risks and costs of change. How large are the personal and financial costs of the change?

Repeat this exercise to see how ready you are to change.

We must learn to view change as a natural phenomenon - to anticipate it and to plan for it. The future is ours to channel in the direction we want to go.. we must continually ask ourselves, "What will happen if.." or better still, "How can we make it happen?".
