Transformation In Professional Situations
Transformation is often not much fun in the moment. Consider the necessity of changing a professional situation that isn’t working. You might have been giving and giving – to the point of imbalance – in a business or client relationship. The giving wasn’t reciprocated, and after you’ve tried all kinds of ways to change it, you have to take decisive action.
The others involved may resist – they may even attack you because you’ve changed what you’re willing to do and be.
Gail Sheehy says, “Transformation also means looking for ways to stop pushing yourself so hard professionally or inviting so much stress.”
Have you had the experience of needing to pull back from stress and imbalance as a means of transforming a business dynamic? What have been the consequences? Did you experience support or resistance from the others involved? What did you learn about getting yourself into that situation and how it could potentially be avoided in the future?
