Adapting in the workplace is critical

Just as Ilchi Lee says spiritual healing is an important mechanism for dealing with adversity in the workplace, employees also need to remember that their ability to adapt is absolutely critical in certain situations.

Landing a job is one thing, but keeping it is entirely different, as layoffs continue to be rampant across the country. Because of this, it has become even more important for workers to be able to adapt to their environments and do whatever it takes in order to get the job done.

After a few months on the job, one may feel comfortable with his or her responsibilities, but at some point, change is inevitable. Being prepared for this change and having the ability to shift gears “on the fly” can show one’s boss that one is up to any task thrown his or her way.

For instance, if a boss tells the employee one thing one week, then changes his or her mind the next week, the worker needs to be prepared to perform the responsibilities requested, without complaining or decreasing productivity levels.

While this may seem difficult, it is extremely beneficial in the long run as bosses will notice the person’s ability to adapt and will take this into consideration when determining potential raises or promotions in the future.
