If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.
Nothing is so painful to the human mind as a great and sudden change.
2500 years ago, Heraclitus said: “There is nothing permanent except change.” As you joined Glion, the word “change” takes on a real meaning for you. Maybe have you felt a “transition blues”, feeling dislocated, not fitting in this new environment, everyone seemed to know what is happening and you don’t, these are quite normal feelings. Remember that you are not alone and that these experiences are an opportunity to bond with other students.
The importance of change in the professional context is demonstrated by the fact that there is a field of study dedicated to Change Management, a subject you will learn about during your GIHE studies.
