The Cycle of Change. Managing Change.

Change rarely runs smoothly. You cannot eliminate these challenges. But you can at least set expectations so that no one is surprised by what happens.

The change cycle normally takes the following pattern:

Stage 1: The enthusiasm of an early start with some early wins.

Stage 2:
The fall into despair as the challenges and the opposition mount.

Stage 3
: The valley of death. This is where it seems that things cannot get worse. 

Stage 4: The roller coaster moves back up as you start to see thta success is possible. Enthusiasm builds the closer you get to the finish line.

Remember, people reach levels of success for change at different times.
