Everyone knows that change will happen. I guess we just need to remember that, so we won’t be so shocked and upset when it happens.

It seems that everyone wants “things to change” at work. Many are all too happy to complain about issues, management, or projects assigned to them. Yet, once “change” is announced fear is the first reaction.

Let’s face it, change is going to happen, and most often it turns out to be a good thing! Change keeps us up-to-date, keeps business moving forward, and is usually a sign of progress. Honestly, we just have to deal with it.

It’s normal to fear the unknown. Acknowledge your fears. In fact, you may want to think about what your fear and actually write it down. Then, write some resulting actions you can implement. Is your fear that you’ll be laid-off with a corporate buy-out? Write down a plan of action. Coming up with an actual list of actions you will take should a lay-off occur will help waylay those fears. You are probably more prepared than realize.

Communication is key. Some aspects of the fear of change are just the “unknown”. Don’t get into office gossip and rumors. Talk with managers or a company spokesperson when appropriate; you may gain some information that helps you understand what will really be taking place.

Also, just sharing your fears with a trusted friend helps get it off your chest, and subsequently, off your mind.

At work, and in life, a great attitude makes everything better! This too shall pass and something great will come of it.
