Often times I point out to other DBAs how their customers will resist change. But I have never asked about how DBAs handle change.
So, how do you handle change? When your boss comes to you with a request that means you will need to change the way you have done things for years, how do you react? What about when developers need you to do something different? Or when a customer need you to simply stop doing what you are doing and help them immediately with a problem?
Change is all around us, in many different forms. How we react to such change is often our ‘glass ceiling’.
Next time you are asked to change, stop and think before you react.
