As an expert, if you respond to change in a negative way and you express resistance and opposition you will only end up alienating yourself.
In order not to fall into that trap, ask yourself these questions:
Next time there’s a change, how can I, even if I feel skeptical and resistant, be as open-minded as possible? What does it require of me? How do I learn to suspend judgment?
If the change has been poorly communicated to me, how do I proactively seek out the reasons for the change?
If I conclude that the change being proposed is fundamentally flawed, how do I frame my concerns in a positive way? How can I avoid being simply negative about the idea? In this instance, could I come up with a better way of achieving the objective?
