A PRACTICAL APPROACH WHEN DEALING WITH EMPLOYEE RESISTANCE TO CHANGE

Change is inevitable. Yet we dread it, resist it and do everything to prevent it. Upon communicating change to employees, did you ever hear: "When is management going to understand it is the real world down here?" How about, "If my boss would just get off my back and let me do my job, everything would be okay!" or, "Why can't they leave well enough alone?" These expressions reflect symptoms of employees not only resisting change, but more importantly, leaders potentially not fulfilling their responsibility in communicating change. This program has been designed to help leaders communicate change and overcome employee resistance. Common sense says if employees are good at resisting change, then a leader needs to be just as effective in getting them to accepting change.
