Reason #2 Why People Resist Change & How To Help

Reason: They don't know how big a deal the change actually is. Have you ever started a project so overwhelming that you didn’t even know where to start? This is how change can feel, too.

The Fix: Try using the 4-door approach to give the change some edges.

  1. What are the things we used to be able to do and still can?
  2. What are the things we couldn’t do before and still can’t?
  3. What are the things we used to do but can’t now?
  4. What are the things we couldn’t do before but can now?

Reason #1 Why People Resist Change & How To Help

Reason: They are too full of fear and emotions and fears to think straight.

The Fix: As soon as you hear a new idea, your brain categorizes it as 'good' or 'bad.' Create space for the team to consider a third category - the 'interesting' elements of the change.

The Why of Life

Great leaders look at the fundamental forces of life, and ask 'Why'. There is a drive they carry, a cause, a purpose, that makes them inspired to achieve something bigger than themselves.

  • Their 'Why' is centered around their personal, family and health goals.
  • They determine 'How' by their personal and professional development goals.
  • They pursue their business, career and financial goals by asking 'What'.
