Learn to embrace useful advances in technology

Does this sound familiar?

You have been working for the same company for 15 years, and while it feels like you know the place inside and out, it also feels like you sometimes can’t keep up. The email system has been updated, the file sharing system has been redesigned, and Zoom meetings are suddenly the norm. The rapid pace of new technology is overwhelming and intimidating. Trying to keep track of information from email messages and locating documents in a timely fashion during meetings has you feeling like you’re a beat behind many of your colleagues. On most days, you’re lamenting the fact that so many things have changed so quickly.

Integrate key technologies to more easily manage your workload

Consequences of poor adaptation to new methods

While it may feel challenging to keep up with technological advancements, the consequences of avoidance can create even more significant challenges: 

  • Your colleagues are likely to see you as incompetent, or unable to learn, and thus you’re passed over for important projects and promotions
  • As you coworkers embrace new technologies, you may develop a sense of inadequacy, leading to cycles of self-doubt, stress, anxiety, and possibly depression
  • Active resistance towards new technologies can lead to a cycle of continued avoidance; the longer you put off learning the harder it will be to eventually initiate exploration of new tools, thus creating a vicious cycle of frustration and fear.
