Flexibility Enhancer 2: Change Yourself

Rigid and unbending people become anxious, angry, and resist change. They say, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. It’s OK to make changes over in that other department, but not in mine.” By focusing on the negative aspects of a change, they reduce their ability to think clearly and see options. They may act in ways that are not helpful for themselves and others. They see little relationship between their actions and what happens in their lives.

How Do You React to Change?

On the scale below, Put an “X” on the line above the number that is nearest to the way you handle change.

10 = You are flexible and adaptable most of the time

1 = You are rigid and unbending most of the time

Ask one or more trusted friends to rate you also. Ask them to give you examples of how they think you adapt to change. After comparing your rating to theirs, what did you learn about yourself?
