Episode #162 Mastering Change

May 5, 2023


Change... love it or hate it, it's inevitable.  Change is a natural part of life and business.

Even when you voluntarily sign up for change, you may experience resistance, unpleasant emotions, and significant delays to getting to your new happy "after".

Not only are you facing your own change journey, your change causes a domino effect for others.  Their reaction, or your fear of their reaction, may be an additional hurdle to overcome.

You have an opportunity to make the whole process easier and faster.  When you understand the 7 phases of change, you'll recognize where you are and how you can quickly advance forward.  Additionally, you'll also be able to recognize where others are in their change journey.  This allows you to support their easier and faster transition.

When you master change, your quality of life and business success soar. TIP: Reference the Change Curve visual below as you listen to this episode.

In this episode we explore:

  • Immediate Change Adoption vs. a Journey
  • Your 7 phase change Journey
