A role change is many times inevitable for individuals in many positions. Change, as we all know, is the only constant in a business. When this much is said about businesses, it is but natural that employees in various positions need to be prepared for a change in their role. In the current situation of most organizations today, employees cannot expect to keep performing fixed roles over a lifetime. A change in role can be brought about due to various circumstances. The organization may require it from the individual. Many times, it may be thrust on the individual without too much time to prepare for the transition.
In any case, just like how organizations that are prepared for change cope with it better; employees too, need to cultivate the attitude and mindset to anticipate a change in role. The more they are prepared, the greater the ease with which they will accept the new role, and the better they will perform once they have transitioned into the new role. On the other hand, if they are reluctant changers, they will feel that the role has been imposed on them. If they fail to live up to expectations, both they and the organization stand to suffer setbacks.
Organizations that anticipate and accept changes on their own and change because they want to, and not because they have to, are the ones that see change as an opportunity than as a punishment. The same applies to individuals too, that want to transition to a new role.
