People who are more resistant to change than others will always exist – it’s a fact of life. How you handle it should be situational, no a one size fits all. That said, in managing change, one thing I always make sure to do is – acknowledge the resisters. I find a Gestalt approach valuable. “All resistance is mobilization of energy, not lack of energy…those who reist are bundles of energy, not lifeless passive blobs” -Edwin Nevis. The energy of “No-Nos” can be harnessed for the benifit of the project.
