Emotions on Change
Ken Blanchard and Phil Hodges ~ 7 Dynamics to Change

“And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins.” ~ Mark 2:22

“You can make really effective changes when your consciousness
is free of emotional turmoil.” – Ken Keyes Jr.

“The first step toward change is awareness.
The second step is acceptance.” – Nathaniel Branden

These terms are needed understand change:

Renovation – the act or process of repairing and improving something. (Renovate: to restore to life, vigor, or activity)

Innovation – a new idea, method, or device; the introduction of something new.

1. Change makes us feel awkward (ill will, self-conscious, a degree of discomfort)

2. Change makes us feel alone (self-isolation attitude of why me, to be bearable). Some of us love being alone.

3. Change makes us feel anxious over what we have to give up. (Personal sense of loss, fear of giving up, time and process of mourning)

4. Change makes us feel anxious over what changes are coming. (More than a few, mobilization process, significant decisions, no indication of an end) America will not change in one year under the new administration. President Biden cannot change the country overnight.

5. Change makes us feel anxious over not having enough resources. (Assessment required, new budgeting, relocation, downsizing, remaining competitive and marketing)

6. Change makes us feel anxious about their readiness and capabilities. (Resistance to change, willingness to expand capacity, adopting digital platforms and developing small groups)

7. Change makes us feel ambivalent (required adjustments, new schedules, communication is required to assist in discipline). Definition ambivalence: Ambivalence is a state of having simultaneous conflicting reactions, beliefs, or feelings towards some object. The term also refers to situations where “mixed feelings” of a more general sort are experienced, or where a person experiences uncertainty or indecisiveness. This is part of the problem with the Church.

“From the beginning, there have been some religious leaders who greeted the funding of faith-based social services by government with ambivalence.” – Tony Campolo
