Why People Resist Change, Part 6:
Not Being ConsultedIf people are allowed to be part of change there will be less resistance as they will feel involved in the process and understand what the company is trying to achieve. If you impose something upon them, often people will resist – not because they are afraid, but purely because you didn’t communicate with them first. People resent someone, who does not do the same job as them, imposing change upon them without asking if it will work. If they feel involved and part of the team aiming to change behavior it is very easy to take people with you on the change journey.
