The Origin of Resistance to Change
Grace Oshun
It is my belief that resistance to change stems from fear and lack of information. When free-flow of information forms part of the policy of an organization, every worker is able to analyze available information objectively and this eliminates fear and suspicion. It also helps to eradicate rumor, thereby ensuring the success of that organization.

Adhering to old paradigms along with benefits (mostly personal) one believes is acquired by maintaining the present situation is the main source of resistance to change.

How do we manage a staff who had received lecture on how to overcome fear but they still display fear and incompetency in the office everyday.

Reasons for Resisting Change
Isaac E. Kruger, Member
It can be painfully frustrating to see a manager resisting change, just because he/she feels threatened by the very change. Also the feeling of not being worthy or in control or even knowing that they are not capable enough, may also be a determining factor.
