We often talk about change at the grand scale of change, but equally if not more important, is change at the personal level. We’ve all encountered this in our teams and organizations — people are resistant to change and the struggle to get them on board for change. The key to unlocking this lies in recognizing that people don’t fear change, they fear being changed. If we can take the “being” out of it, we can get them on board with change.
I share the four main reasons why people resist change:
Because it’s happening to us and we’re not in control
Because we fear the unknown — not knowing what to do, being left behind, uncertainty, getting it wrong
Because our lizard brain sees change as unsafe and risky
Because we are afraid of changing who we are fundamentally as a person
Understanding these four reasons for fearing change can help us address these fears and get people on board with three simple strategies — giving control back to the people around you, investing in them, and acknowledging all effort. Really, at the end of the day, it’s about empowering people to tackle the change.
