Urgency for Change
There is a common misperception about change; namely that people naturally resist change. We can all think of examples where people naturally seem to resist change. However, we can also find plenty of examples where people seem to naturally embrace change. In fact, current science is changing much of its original ideas about the brain and the physical and psychological responses human beings have to change.
In truth, people simply do not naturally resist change. In fact, as a species, our ability to adapt (change) has been our greatest survival tool. This fact, however inconvenient, runs deeply counter to the notion that people naturally resist change.
There is another “school of thought” which argues that people can be urgently pre-disposed to make change happen. Further, according to this position, you must first figure out how to get people urgently pre-disposed to favor change before you attempt to make change happen.
This is groundbreaking work, seeking to examine change at fundamental levels, both individually and organizationally, and distill from recent findings an understanding of the motivations of change.
Change is inevitable. Growth is optional.
