Change vs. Transition:
Change is situational – a reorganization; a new position; a new matrix team, a new boss.
Transition is the psychological process that people go through to come to terms with the
new situation, the change event. One of the critical elements often missed in change
management efforts is the emotional undercurrent that sits below all change efforts.
FIRST you need to acknowledge and accept the change. After acceptance and
acknowledgement, comes ACTION. As a change leader, a project manager, or an
individual who is grappling with change him or herself, taking action is critical for moving
the team, organization or yourself forward in the transformed milieu.
Change upsets the status quo. Feelings of loss, anger and despair sometimes surface.
Recognizing and supporting the feelings that cause resistance and rebellion during
change efforts is critical to supporting a successful implementation of change.
