"Change is the only constant" Heraclitus, Greek Philosopher
This is most definitely a time of change, on many levels, for the majority of people across the world. Very few landscapes have not been affected, or had enforced change, by the restrictions and implications of the coronavirus. Personally, my consultancy of working face-to-face is fast-changing as I adopt Zoom calls, online workshop creation and live webinars. Don’t get me wrong, I love being challenged professionally and finding the flex and skills to learn new approaches, up-skill my technical knowledge and adapt my style of presenting, has been really exciting and created a new sense of purpose and drive for me.
I am acutely aware how change can cause undue stress and worry and changes that are entirely at the mercy of something out of your control, incur an even greater degree of concern. Having strategies and techniques to call on at times like these is imperative. Here are some that I have drawn on over the years (and now) to help get me through challenging times.
