Change is Good, as Long as its Not Big Changes all at Once
Today's lesson is about change. When we make big impactful changes, they may backfire in the long run especially if they do not leave options on the table. If change is desired, find a way to make a small change that can be built upon in a number of ways. View change as growth that happens gradually without notice. In that way, it happens without too many growing pains which can result in change viewed in a negative way. For example, if you are changing to introduce a new technology that will help productivity, try to find a way to roll it out and have a few champions work with it for a bit and spread out the word gradually rather than shoving it into the hands of everyone all at once. In the long term, acceptance and usage will be much better.
