A Change Will Do You Good

April 2, 2009 at 3:55 pm Leave a comment

Browsing through my bi-weekly email from Dewey & Kaye, I came across a great article written by one of their staff entitled “Personal Strategies for Coping with Workplace Change & Stress“. Who couldn’t use a few tips on this topic? But it seems especially relevant in today’s world of uncertainty where layoffs are the norm and workloads are shifting.

Employees are now expected to pick up the to-do lists of their laid off colleagues and there is more pressure to be as productive as possible and make yourself a known valuable asset to those passing out the pink slips. You’re worried. There’s your sister, your husband, your best friend – all looking for a way to pay the bills. Your company is reporting earnings well below what is needed for you to receive that bonus, but no matter; you want to kiss the ground each morning you wake up and realize that you are still employed. It’s this state of flux – of not know what will happen next, while readjusting to the new reality of a workplace – that makes us anxious. And I do truly believe what this article is telling us – that the action and optimistic attitude we embrace today will only lead us to success (not to mention a longer life) in the future.
