Resistance to Change not Just Self-Interest
Kathryn
The first factor in resistance, self interest, may be something less "toxic" and that is complacency (Editor: ~self-satisfaction). At first an individual isn't resistant to change, per se, but it simply doesn't occur to them. Comfort and complacency abound. Resistance occurs when it is perceived that the change agent is trying to take something away. More than resistance ensues, battle breaks out.
 

 
Resistance is Self Interest
Karen Correll
The statement that "resistance occurs when it is perceived that the change agent is trying to take something away", is based on self interest and fear. Change requires time, effort and a willingness to look forward, but in situations where folks are resistant and attempt to block the movement forward, they are doing so out of fear of change, and feeling that they do not have the time and energy to re-learn a new process or procedure. They are afraid that if they do, it will mean more work. What they are lacking in vision is that this change may mean working smarter not harder.
