Rock the boat, baby

by Amy Sellors

Change is hard.  And scary.  I know this because I’m about to embark on a big change.

This summer I am off to Stephenville, Newfoundland.  My husband is the new Artistic Director of the theatre there. We’re renting out our Toronto home and we’re moving to a seaside cabin.  I’m getting back on the stage again after a significant hiatus.  I’m driving my car onto a boat and spending 6 hours on the Atlantic Ocean. Honestly, that really scares the heck out of me.  Cars on Ocean Liners??? Am I the only one terrified by that??!

We ask them questions to explore the heart of the issue.  We draw their attention to things they haven’t considered.  And this helps them embrace the change – whether it is dealing with client objections, coaching a difficult employee, or picking up the phone to make cold calls.
