Moving Beyond Change Barriers

Business is built on change.  According to Harvard business guru, John P. Kotter’s extensive research (“What Leaders Really Do,” 1999, Harvard Business Review Book), “…it is primarily ‘leading’ that successfully encourages the change that is necessary for business to survive in the highly competitive world today.”  Yet, some individuals view change with trepidation and fear, resisting any modifications of the status quo.  How should an organization manage, much less lead, individuals who are resistant to change?

Leaders often begin moving resisters beyond the barriers of change by clearly communicating adequate information about goals, plans, and constraints as well as addressing the all-important “what’s going to happen to me?”  But resistance may still persist – what next?
