This Episode: Supporting Individuals Through Change

By entering the period of COVID-19 lockdown, we all experienced an intense and sometimes stressful period of change. Indeed, many haven’t seemed to consider that we are also headed for another period of change as we transition back to normal life.

In this week’s episode, Lucinda discusses her own experience on the change curve. Furthermore, she explores the key points of change and how we go through it. Additionally looking at the possibilities of what the “new normal” could mean. 


Valuable Resources

Key Takeaways

  • Certainly in the HR sector, change has been drastic and widespread. New laws, methodologies and guidelines have swept in. Consequently, this has caused us to completely re-evaluate our working lives going forward.
  • Never mistake silent denial for silent commitment. For example, don’t assume that someone has bought into something merely because they have not voiced an objection or opinion.
  • Concerns raised in the workplace must always be at least acknowledged and heard. Indeed, activating a conversation will cause the person to self-regulate through the change curve.
  • A different future requires a different vision. Certainly, we cannot hope to rush out to a new normality with no changes in place. Look for personal benefits to the many.

Best Moments

  • ‘Change is something that’s always been with us, but never so strongly as in 2020’
  • ’This is a great opportunity to be a “change superhero” in your own right’
  • ‘Dismissal leads to denial’
  • ‘We have found ways of being effective. The paradigm has been blown’
