Personal Responses to Imposed Change

by Maggie
(Reading UK)

Over the years I have worked in Local Government change has been a feature of my working life continually. Being a student of Personal Construct Psychology I absolutely accept that everything is a continual work in progress and nothing is ever finished or completed.

That said I have also developed enough of a sense of awareness to know that I respond very actively to imposed change. My action tends to take the form of taking personal control. The most recent example is I have volunteered for redundancy rather than wait to be made redundant at the whim of others during the current reduction of local government services.

I think there is no little danger in ignoring your personal responses to imposed change and if taking control of your destiny affords you the energy to go on to find a new lease of life then forcing yourself to accept imposed change is probably the wrong personal decision for you.
