Dealing with Resistance to Change

- MAINTAINING STATUS QUO means living and working within the known and the comfort zone.
- CHANGE means going beyond frontiers of the known, learning to work with new challenges.
- RESISTANCE TO CHANGE means avoiding newer responsibilities of learning and coping.
Those who tend to take ownership of the processes welcome change and those who work as servants resist changes.
From this perspective, facilitating the team to take ownership of processes is a critical core to work through resistance.
