The biggest frustration in leading change is overcoming resistance to change.
Are you leading or communicating change initiatives in your organization? Do you need to increase buy-in? Would you like to increase your influence by becoming a Change Champion?
In today’s fast pace world, leaders are constantly challenged with leading change within the organization. Conditions and business initiatives change constantly and quickly.
As a leader of change, you are faced with the need to not only manage the change itself, but also the resistance, reactions, fears, and emotions of your team members throughout the change. Fear of change will create roadblocks when it comes to implementing new initiatives. The result: wasted time, increased cost, and decreased productivity.
Change brings both challenges and opportunities. Change can bring an organization together by uniting the team around a unifying purpose and vision, or it can create chaos.
We understand the frustration, stress, and even anxiety leaders experience when team members aren’t embracing change. Frustration is created when there is resistance to change. To eliminate the resistance, the leader must intentionally help shift the mindset of the resistant team members at every level.
Teams that embrace change are more adaptive, more responsive to customer needs, and more competitive in today’s business world. When it comes to change, they are proactive instead of reactive.

“When we leverage something, we take advantage of the lever to multiply the results of our efforts. Leveraging something can be a powerful way to gain momentum and accelerate progress. But, we seldom think of change as something we can, or should, leverage.”~ Ria Story
