Becoming Resilient > Acceptance of Change

Acceptance of Change

Change is constant and inevitable, and to some managers it brings an overwhelming discomfort. The roots of that discomfort can sometimes be traced to such feelings as fear (How can I continue to succeed when the rules have changed?) or a need to exert control (If I don’t do it my way, the way I have always done it, then it won’t be done right). Other managers try to deny change by focusing on the skills that have brought them past success and ignoring gaps in their leadership competencies. But sooner or later a change for which they are not prepared results in a mistake with serious consequences – a missed promotion, negative appraisal, demotion, or termination.

"He couldn’t change. He had a rigid and outdated management style. He was inflexible and people got tired of it.”
