Change, and learning what’s needed to succeed in the workplace, can be both exhilarating and daunting.
For some, it serves to re-energize them and make them feel optimistic about what’s ahead. For others, it creates a sense of fear and doubt about their being able to learn what’s new or about having a place within the future of the organization.
This guide walks you through a real-world example of the dynamics that can happen when both existing employees and new hires arrive at the first step of the learning curve together, the potential differences in receptivity that may arise, and ways to engage employees to move forward together.
