Managing Personal Change
Change is something that happens to us throughout our lives, whether we desire it or whether it is imposed. We move home, end and begin significant relationships and move jobs or employing organisation. Change may create opportunities and challenge for us all.
The way that individuals respond to change has been well researched. We all pass through a cycle of emotions as we deal with change and its consequences. The timing and depth of the experiences varies depending on a variety of factors, including amongst others;
- The amount of control and influence we have over the change
- Our engagement in the process
- Sense of loss
- Ability to live with and manage stress
- Individual resilience or 'bounce back ability' of the person
