Overcoming resistance to change

Change projects too often end up like a new year’s resolution.

A few months after a big launch, momentum fizzles and backsliding begins. Eventually, familiar ways regain their hold. The majority of change projects end up this way.

Change that lasts over time requires more than an action plan, resolve and ‘quick wins’. The best of intentions can be overpowered by deep-seated beliefs that reside naturally in all of us. Some may form an immunity to change, a human phenomenon discovered by psychologists Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey, both Harvard professors. As principals of Minds At Work, Kegan and Lahey have developed a framework to identify hidden factors that are creating resistance to change. Their methods are used around the world. 

We help people see their own ‘change immune system’, based on our training with Minds at Work.

TAKEAWAY Participants quickly see factors that may be conflicting with change sustaining over time. They leave with a personal plan for change readiness.

TIMING Especially helpful when starting a transformation or re-setting a transformation that’s stalled.
