Supporting emotional transitioning
Everyone reacts differently to a particular change. Some people may embrace change and be excited, hopeful, and enthusiastic. Others may fear change, be confused, angry, or not quite know what to feel. As change leaders, we need to recognize that everyone takes their own personal journey through the emotions of change and that they take this journey at their own pace. Spending time on the emotional aspects of change and helping people transition is critical for successfully cultivating change in our organizations. Although there is no easy recipe, this chapter offers many approaches for helping people make the transition through the emotions of change more easily and more successfully. By helping people work through their emotions, we create a better platform for current changes and improve receptivity to future changes.
