Some people act like turtles when it comes to change.
They already move slowly, and when they hear there are going to be changes, they stop, pull in their heads, legs and tails, and stop in their tracks. Often there is some resistance to change. Having a process is critical to move change along. John Kotter’s
Our organizations’ culture is change adverse. Change, just for the sake of change, seems silly and unnecessary to many people. The word “change” can cause people to get upset and threaten to leave.
Change is hard pretty much for everybody. Some people are merely suffering through it. Some people are skipping down the hallway, high fiving and back slapping, acting as if there is nothing to worry about. Is it possible to thrive rather than just survive change?
