This month the Laughology team have been working a lot on the theme of change (click here and scroll down the page to read The Laughology - eight stages to organisational change). Change is a word that can cause all kinds of emotional responses in an organisation. Awareness of feelings and managing reactions towards change is an important part of any transformation process. Some people associate negativity with change whilst others see change a positive.
Positioning what change means in your organisation will determine how people react to it and it's this which needs much consideration. It's more fitting for modern businesses to treat change as a continuum rather than a finite process. The fast pace of business means organisations need to focus on positioning transformation as continuous improvement where business and organisations are constantly evolving in order to stay ahead of the game.
Helping teams and individuals grasp this concept and increasing resilience and flexibility in people is the best starting point. In doing so you have people within an organisation that can think and adapt as quickly and effortlessly as they need to.
"Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like."
― Lao Tzu
