Managing emotions during change

Change is not easy. It threatens established patterns of behaviour that we are comfortable with. Even if we welcome the change on an intellectual level because we think that what is currently happening is not right, breaking our habits, unlearning what we do today and building new routines is stressful. Change cannot happen in isolation from other people, it is a team sport, which means we need to manage our own emotions about the change whilst being affected by the emotions of everyone else caught up in the change.

This article describes practical techniques for building your resilience, your ability to keep going even when you face obstacles.
