In organizational settings we bemoan how difficult change is and run endless training courses to support change management. Yet here we have seen the most dramatic changes in behaviour in our lifetime within 12 weeks. The current situation has just highlighted how adaptable we can be when the case is made strongly enough, and needs must. Shops, offices and all manner of working contexts have changed beyond recognition in a few short weeks. This is not to say the change has been easy, and some people are experiencing significant issues. However, it does highlight how resilient and adaptable we can be to new and changing circumstances. We have Zoom quiz nights, socially distanced picnics and have learnt to exercise in whole new ways. I once read in a book that if you woke up tomorrow as a giant insect, you would find a way to cope……..and you probably would!
What has this period taught you about our ability to change?
What adaptations have you made that you might have thought impossible 6 months ago?
What new strengths have you discovered you have?
