The Nature of Change Introduction: The history of the world is the history of change, for change is with us all the time. In some eras, change comes slowly. In others, such as today, it comes at a blindingly rapid pace. That's why every one of us needs to understand the nature of change and manage it for our own survival.
  3. 3. 3 | MTL: The Professional Development Programme The Nature of Change Don’t be like the frog that fails to react to his surroundings 1. ADAPT OR DIE https://www.flickr.com/photos/jronaldlee/4585125664/ Change has always meant that, if you cling on to old ways of seeing and doing, in time your ideas will no longer be relevant. In business terms, your products and services will no longer be wanted and you will fail to thrive. It is like the species of frog, that, when placed in a bowl of water that is slowly heated, fails to react and is boiled alive.
  4. 4. 4 | MTL: The Professional Development Programme The Nature of Change 2. SEEK OUT THE PLUSES https://pixabay.com/en/eyeglasses-exam-optometry-vision-2003188/ See the opportunities in change Stable environmental climates are preferred by most organizations. There is greater control and the future can be predicted with more certainty. In unstable times, these don't work. Things change too fast. Instead, you need flexible structures, people who can learn, and the ability to see the opportunities thrown up by change.
  5. 5. 5 | MTL: The Professional Development Programme The Nature of Change https://pixabay.com/en/chaos-unknown-unfamiliar-strange-1820492/ The drive to comfort comes from discomfort 3. GET USED TO DISCOMFORT Constant change creates a climate of chaos where the old certainties no longer exist. For organisations, as well as individuals, it means going through periods of discomfort and insecurity. Jack Welch knew this when he was head of GEC. He said, "Willingness to change is a strength, even if it means plunging parts of the organisation into total confusion for a while."
  6. 6. 6 | MTL: The Professional Development Programme The Nature of Change 4. COMMUNICATE EVEN BETTER https://www.flickr.com/photos/atul666/3060379240/ Looking ahead to the Promised Land In times of change, people look to their leaders to tell them that things will work out especially when the old ways have gone and the new ways haven’t yet been clarified. That's why, in periods of transition, you need people with masterful communication skills. It's like Moses leading the children of Israel into the Promised Land. The unwanted state has gone but the new one hasn’t yet arrived.
  7. 7. 7 | MTL: The Professional Development Programme The Nature of Change https://pixabay.com/en/gears-bulb-innovation-technology-1443730/ Use all the brains in your business 5. OPEN UP YOUR THINKING Some organisations are better prepared for change than others. If your organisation operates from the top down, with only its leaders being able to initiate and manage change, then the outlook is bleak. But if your organisation listens to all its people and allows them to invest in the change through their thinking and commitment, it will survive transition and come out on top.
  8. 8. 8 | MTL: The Professional Development Programme The Nature of Change 6. BE WILLING TO LET GO https://pixabay.com/en/drone-quadcopter-control-stability-1155507/ Look for the good in the new Change is most difficult for those who are invested in the past and present. But managing change is about managing the future. You have to make room for the new by discarding the old. Woody Allen joked, "My father worked for the same firm for 12 years. They replaced him with a gadget this big. It does everything that my father does, only much better. The depressing thing is, my mother ran out and bought one."

SNIFF THE DIRECTION OF THE WIND There is a story of how Dwight D. Eisenhower, when President of Columbia University, received a deputation of students asking for a pathway across the grass. "Why do they walk there?" he asked. "It's the easiest way to the hall," came the reply. "Well, if that's the way they're going to go, then cut a pathway there," he said.
