Improvise, adapt, overcome
Not just a popular meme, the principle works well in the office. Be spontaneous in grabbing opportunities.
‘Can do’ attitude
Accept it, it’s natural to want to resist change. But don’t stop there, build up your ability to adapt and respond positively by literally changing your behaviour next time you are faced with a change.
The next time your team/organization is faced with challenges, try making a quick list of some of the potential ways you could solve the problem. Experiment with different strategies and focus on developing a logical way to work through common problems.
The most important thing is, avoid victim-mentality and be assertive in handling your issues. Whenever you can, always challenge yourself and team to learn and upgrade your skills.
