Transition vs change - Deepstash

Transition vs change

Keep aware that change can happen quickly whilst transition occurs more slowly. Usually something new must be learned and something old must be un-learned, so the emotional dips (whether personal or professional) are inevitable, but the wisdom and resilience gained from the recovery process is a valuable part of life experience.

Transition is the internal process that happens inside our mind when presented with change; a letting go of how things used to be and reorienting to how they are now. This is a natural response that enables us to adapt to loss. The experience of this global pandemic is such a major life event that has inflicted loss of many types upon each of us.

Identify yourself on the change curve. Adaptability is the capacity to spot a changing context and alter our mind-set to take account of what has happened and is likely to happen. By understanding the transition process and the psychological impact on your mind, and noting where you might be on the change curve, you are more able to recognise the barriers and biases that may be in the way of your chosen path. This self-awareness makes your mindset more flexible.

The transition from WFH to the office
  • Strong HR strategies. Not only can an HR team connect and support individual employees, but also use their platform to teach employees how to support each other, creating a positive chain of office-based encouragement.
  • Taking the transition back into the office at your company’s own pace is also vital if you want to prioritise mental health on the return to work.
  • When your team has returned to the office, a great way to reinitiate team bonding and introduce staff members to the post-pandemic working future is the introduction of wellbeing workshops.
  • Ergonomic care, too. Prioritizing ergonomic welfare is often forgotten within the office, leading to a whopping 86 percent of office workers sitting for up to 8 hours a day.
  • Prioritize those still working from home. As 30 percent of the corporate workforce still remains at home in 2021, it’s important for employers not to exclude them from post-pandemic well-being schemes

Midlife Crisis

We are biologically programmed to have some sort of mental crisis in the age group of 45 to 55 (the midlife).

Just as bodily changes occur during puberty and the teen years, the mind undergoes developmental stages of adjustments, with functions switching on and then switching off at a later stage of life.

Adjusting to in-person working relationships

Returning to in-person work can feel a bit awkward after working remotely for the last year and a half.

While some may be eager to share experiences with coworkers, others may not be ready to talk about the emotional experiences they've been through. Personal interaction with other people may require more energy than expected and could feel like a drain. To reboot our in-person working relationships, we need to go back to the basics of human connection.
