The challenge of resistance to change

We asked leaders from some of the world’s largest organizations to tell us what keeps them awake at night when they think about leading big projects.

  • Why don’t they $*&%@ get how important this project is?
  • How come we keep making the same mistakes?
  • Why do people resist doing the hard stuff?
  • Why aren’t we all on the same page?
  • Why do so many people seem to be out for themselves?

Do those questions resonate with you? How do we get your organization focused on what’s really important?

Every one of those questions points to a huge gap in energy. It’s the gap between strong support and show-stopping resistance. And that gap is where I live. I work with leaders to help them understand what is creating the gap and how to close that divide. I hope you’ll take a look at the resources we offer.
