Dealing with Resistance to Change
Madaiah, Management Consultant, India, Member
- 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.
 

 
Managing People Who Resist your Suggestions

At times it's a challenge to manage people who are uncooperative. And you may be in the situation that you don't have a strong support structure as a manager.
What is the best way of dealing with such situations?
 

 
Managing People Who Resist Change

@Mary: When people are engaged and involved in the change there will be less or no resistance. People resist when change happens to them rather than they being involved in the change, because then there's no ownership. When people are forced to change, that change may not be sustainable.
