“embrace change” Explanations in Lao

Eliz: Welcome once again to “Culture Tips” with Gary Engleton.

Today, our e-mail question is “What do Americans mean when they say Embrace Change?”

Gary: To “embrace change” means to welcome change.

This has become very common advice in American business.

Eliz: Why is that?

Gary: Well... Recently, there has been a lot of change in American business culture.

Almost everyone in business today has to deal with change.

Eliz: What kind of change do you mean?

Gary: Well, for example, in the traditional American company, a job was often long-term.

For example, my grandfather worked for the same company for forty-five years.

And he did the same job for all of that time.

Eliz: That’s very unusual!

Gary: Today, it’s unusual. In his day, job stability was normal.

Eliz: Now employees have to get used to changing jobs and companies.

Gary: Exactly. And even if you stay in the same job, the job requirements will change.

If you don’t keep your knowledge and skills up to date, you won’t be able to do a good job.

That’s why it’s important to read and study.

Eliz: Interesting, Gary. Thanks.
