Learn the secrets to taking "any" change in stride.
"Change is hard," we say, and it is even harder when change is
thrust upon us. In today's tough times, we may be forced to
reinvent our career or downsize our lives; at any point in life, we
may lose a love or a dream. Our first reaction to change we didn't
ask for may be to rail against fate. But what if we could see past
today's turmoil and spot the opportunities that lie within
unasked-for change? That is the promise of "AdaptAbility, "
bestselling author and executive coach M. J. Ryan's
paradigm-shifting new book on not merely surviving but thriving
when change is required.
Why is it so hard to accept change? Paradoxically, it is for the
very reason that our brains usually work so well; we are designed
to learn something and make it automatic. The problem is that when
circumstances change, our "efficient" brains keep trying to do
things the same old way. In "AdaptAbility, " Ryan provides
strategies to retrain your brain and optimize your response to
change, step by step: by first accepting the new reality, then
expanding your options, and finally, taking effective action. She
offers cutting-edge tools for becoming calmer, less fearful, and
more flexible, creative, and resourceful in your thinking. Best of
all, as your "adapt-ability" increases, so does your confidence
that you will be able to face whatever life sends your way and find
new ways to flourish.
