Change Dynamics of People Being in the Organization for a Long Time

It seems to me as if the longer people stay in an organisation, the more resistance they develop to any change initiative - despite their advantages. Is this impression of mine correct?

Change Dynamics of Employees who are Serving for a Long Time

I agree with you Charles. When people stay long in an organisation, they seem to get used to the status quo. Everything to them seems to be fine, even when change is inevitable.
I think it is important that people are moved from one area to another to facilitate development within organisations. If someone has stayed long in a certain position, they should arrange someone to take over. A leader who stays long on a position simply because there's no one to replace them is not a good leader. Good leaders always have someone to takeover from them.
