Handling change in the workplace requires some flexibility

Change happens. Some can go with the flow and others find change to be a real challenge. When it comes to running a business, change is almost inevitable. So, you “either flex to the changes or our rigidity may cause us to break” says Karen Gregory, SPHR, president and owner of HRSS Consulting Group .
Often, I’ve seen job postings that refer to the need to be flexible, adaptable, able to work under stress, etc. What does that really mean? It almost seems to describe any one day in the life of a working professional. If we want to succeed in business, we need to consider the role that our flexibility can have on that success.
