Reinvent yourself in the Workplace Adjusting to COVID-19
Adjusting Your Mindset
I recommend reading Who Moved My Cheese. This is a great resource for understanding change and how we react to it. The trick is to position yourself to be prepared when change happens. In the workplace this can mean being prepared to fill another role or being prepared to find another job if you are laid off.
Acquiring New Skills
When is the last time you took inventory of the skills you possess? If you find yourself with extra time during this time of COVID-19, it would be a great idea to learn a new skill. When it comes to the workplace you have to show your employer how you can add value by being a part of the solution when change comes.
Now that you have the right mindset to deal with change and you have acquired new skills, you need to be flexible. When opportunities come you must be ready to take advantage of them. In today's workplace, nothing is guaranteed. However, you control the skills you have and your attitude. When these two are set up right you can get back on track when change happens.
In conclusion, having a mindset for success, acquiring new skills, and staying flexible will help you reinvent yourself in the workplace and help you adjust to the new normal we find ourselves in during this time of COVID-19. Being willing to help or learn new skills will allow you to take on new opportunities and stay employed. Apply these tips so that you prevail when change comes your way.
