Resistors and Drivers of Change & Innovation

resistors and drivers of innovation and change  

Do you remember playing tug-of-war as a kid? It was a game of two teams holding on to either side of a rope, and each team had to try to pull the other over a line down the middle. When it comes to change and innovation, that’s exactly what happens individually, in our teams, and in our organizations – it’s a constant tug-of-war between the resistors and drivers of change.

On one side, you have the resistors of change, that hold change and innovation back. On the other side, there are the drivers of change, that push them forward. In almost every organization, there is a constant interaction (and conflict!) between the resistors and drivers of change, and that can become very frustrating

If we don’t balance out this tug-of-war game to have more, and stronger drivers, than resistors, we will never get the change and innovation that we need to succeed in today’s dynamic and fast-paced marketplace. In this episode I’m going to break it down from the individual, team and organizational level.
