Coping with change in the work place

Don’t allow the change initiators to cast you as negative: Explain to them that change is a metaphysical concept which can only be explicated with reference to the continuity of identity, otherwise it becomes meaningless and, that by your dowsing them with accelerant and setting them aflame, you are symbolically acknowledging the primordial signifier of change throughout the ages.
