In Episode 10 of Season 2 Arthi has an inspiring chat with Melissa Leich, helping us understand the importance of being able to embrace change skillfully.
Melissa’s multicultural upbringing and love for diversity started in childhood, resulting in her studying in the UK and being able to try out new experiences throughout Europe and Asia as a result. She has made some difficult decisions with transformational change results, from leaving her support structures to start afresh in a new country, to having to even help her friends and family understand how to make sense of the change she sought, thereby being able to assist her when needed.
Melissa shares the growth mindset that one need to embrace to successfully navigate through change, along with her guidelines and practical advice to ensure everything we do is about learning and being able to help others to do so too.
Some wise words shared by Melissa:
-“we can choose how we react to something.”
- “see change as a growth process and to have an open mind.”
- “You can always move along, no matter what happens. It is important to break down into your steps. Don’t see the big problem but rather what are the 4 steps I need to take first.”
