It’s a common assumption that employees naturally resist change, but this great video shows that this assumption may not be completely correct. Of course employees resist change that will make things harder and take them out of their comfort zone.
That’s why it’s important to demonstrate to employees how the change will benefit them. To eliminate resistance you need to highlight the benefits of changing, and the negative aspects of things as they are now, while minimizing the positives of not-changing and the negatives associated with change. As the video reminds us, whether change is good or bad is only a matter of perspective.
