Lisa has worked for the Fire and Rescue Service for 10 years. In the past she had been commended on her ability to adapt to new demands, however, when she learned that her role was due to change from traditional firefighting to a more community engagement based position, she began to feel uneasy and concerned about her ability to succeed.
However, Lisa still felt very committed to the Fire Service and decided to take an adaptable approach to make contribution to her community, gain new skills, enjoy her role and experience more positive growth and self-development.
Paul, on his first day of work by a communication agency, was asked to deliver a blog post by nothing later than 5 pm. This was a challenge as it required him a great deal of mental and physical effort to successfully submit the output before its deadline.
Also, sharing with the outside world was not something he was used to but as soon as he realized that sharing would have fostered his growth, he began to see writing as a way of expressing his passions to readers. In less than a week time he also adapted his sleeping habits to accommodate longer working hours. Thus, his approach to his day to day challenges became better and his job became much more exciting.
