Inc. Magazine Feature: How to Renegotiate Your Relationship With Change
If there is one thing we have learned throughout the years, is that change is inevitable, especially in an ever-evolving industry like corporate team building.
Inc. Magazine reached out to Ryan Shortill, founder of Positive Adventures and Onyx Offsites and Training, to answer the following question: How can company leaders better embrace change, both personally and professionally?
We felt the need to reshare this piece of content as we collectively navigate through the post pandemic world:
“Change happens whether we like it or not. Positive changes -- a baby's first steps, opening a new location for your company, or achieving a professional milestone -- are counterbalanced by less desirable changes such as a delayed flight, the sudden death of a loved one, or the failure of a startup.
Change is constant throughout life. Despite this, many of us grip tightly at a sense of security. While we can't control the economy, our industry's market, or a disgruntled staff member, we can control our reactions to the changes they bring. In my experience, entrepreneurs as a group would benefit from overhauling our responses to the inevitable changes that govern our lives.
We have the capability to create business ideas that solve problems--and sometimes we must implement problem-solving strategies for ourselves.”
In the article, Ryan shares 4 positive ways to deal with change. From finding your breath to adopting tools that help process change effectively.
