’Ouch!’ Cory reacted.The New Cheese is a new relationship with the same person.’Richard said, ’I’m beginning to think there is more to this than I thought.I like the idea of letting go of old behavior instead of letting go of the relationship.Repeating the same behavior will just get you the same results.’As far as work goes, maybe instead of changing jobs, I should be changing the way I am doing my job.I’d probably have a better position by now if I did.’Then Becky, who lived in another city but had returned for the reunion, said,’As I was listening to the story and to everyone’s comments here, I’ve had to laugh at myself.I’ve been like Hem for so long, hemming and hawing and afraid of change.I didn’t realize how many other people did this as well.I’m afraid I’ve passed it on to my children without even knowing it.’As I think about it, I realize change really can lead you to a new and better place, although you’re afraid it won’t at the time.’I remember a time when our son was a sophomore in high school.My husband’s job required us to move from Il inois to Vermont and our son was upset because he had to leave his friends.He was a star swimmer and the high school in Vermont had no swim team.So, he was angry with us for making him move.’As it turned out, he fell in love with the Vermont mountains, took up ski ng, skied on his college team and now lives happily in Colorado.’If we had all enjoyed this Cheese story together, over a cup of hot chocolate, we could have saved our family a lot of stress.’Jessica said, ’I’m going home to tell my family this story.Frank then commented, ’I think I’m going to be more like Haw and move with the Cheese and enjoy it!And I’m going to pass this story along to my friends who are worried about leaving the military and what the change might mean to them.It could lead to some interesting discussions.’Michael said, ’Wel , that’s how we improved our business.We had several discussions about what we got from the Cheese story and how we could apply it to our situation.It was great because we had language that was fun for us to use to talk about how we were dealing with change.It was very effective, especially as it spread deeper into the company.’Nathan asked, ’What do you mean by ’deeper’?’’Wel , the further we went into our organization, the more people we found who felt they had less power.They were understandably more afraid of what the change imposed from above might do to them.So they resisted change.’In short, a change imposed is a change opposed.’But when the Cheese Story was shared with literally everyone in our organization, it helped us change the way we looked at change.It helped everyone laugh, or at least smile, at their old fears and want to move on.’I only wished I’d heard the Cheese story sooner,’ Michael added.’How come?’ Carlos asked.’Because by the time we got around to addressing the changes, our business had already fallen off so badly that we had to let people go, as I said earlier, including some good friends.It was hard on al of us.However, those who stayed and most of those who left said the Cheese story helped them see things differently and eventually cope better.’Those who had to go out and look for a new job said it was hard at first but recalling the story was a great help to them.’Angela asked, ’What helped them most?’Michael replied, ’After they got past their fear, they told me the best thing was realizing that there was New Cheese out there just waiting to be found!Several got better jobs.’Laura asked, ’What about the people who remained in your company?’’Wel Michael said, ’instead of complaining about the changes that were happening, people now said, ’They just moved our Cheese.Let’s look for the New Cheese.’ It saved a lot of time and reduced stress.’Before long, the people who had been resisting saw the advantage of changing.They even helped bring about change.’Cory said, ’Why do you think they changed?’’They changed
