One way to effectively keep change from causing difficulty for the FM is to keep a strategic plan in place and updated. This will provide some "boundary protection" from unnecessary changes, and also some direction for moving to a different place when change is deemed necessary.
Discuss how to keep your "change radar" working at all times to help predict and prepare for events that may prevent the accomplishment of key goals for the FM function. Recognize the benefits of networking and keeping up with industry trends as a way to "tune" your radar efficiency.
Managing change comfortably and effectively is a powerful skill for the FM to have in their toolbox. Learning how to adapt existing skills and strengths, coupled with practicing new approaches to change management will increase the comfort level of managing change in the future.
