Last week I introduced the topic Preparing For Change, and briefly touched upon several approaches that will be used in the remainder of this month’s posts.
Getting conscious with our change.
One of those approaches, is called the Conscientious Approach to Change™. This approach considers four components that support building conscientiousness into our personal change initiative. Those components include, Awareness, Attunement, Alignment and Authenticity.
This model encourages spiral thinking, and is built in to the remaining posts as a means of how to more comprehensively prepare for your change.
Mapping your transition.
There are other approaches and tools that will be brought-forth in individual posts, but the overall structure for the remainder of this series is based upon one specific model: The Transition Star™.
This researched-based model highlights four specific areas that influence our smooth transition to change; Support, Education, Experience, and (awareness of) Personal Principles.
The more we have of each of these, the more likely we'll adapt smoothly to our change. But even if we lack in some areas, being aware of these vulnerabilities allows us to design strategies for strengthening or supporting them.
The posts that follow will delve into the each of the four points of the Transition Star™ further, and will include suggestions and questions to consider to get to the heart of each respective topic.
Change is personal.
Personal Principles, and ways to better understand them, will be incorporated within the other three points of the Transition Star™, as it is our principles that tend to make or break our ability to adapt to a given change.
In addition, Personal Principles will be highlighted in a stand-alone post. Yep, they're that important!
For while we often understand them at an intuitive level, until we become conscious of the roles they play in our lives, and especially during change, they have the potential to be a puppet-master to our otherwise unsuspecting mindset.
Things to keep in mind.
As we delve into creating this framework for change, please pay close attention to the following:
Even if you’re not yet comfortable or ready to fully face those points of resistance or fears, making note of where they reside, can be extremely helpful for you when you become ready.
This, in return, will create a much more enjoyable and rewarding process along the way.
