Why is our company named "Stable Change."
We are guided by the fact that, at its core, change is a
stable process. It has a predictable beginning, middle, and
end. It feels unstable and chaotic because of the emotion-based
reactions of fear and loss we have when we are going through
it. These reactions cause "resistance to change."
And, as long as we only focus on our emotional reactions we
will continue to feel out of control-and be unable to accurately
evaluate the pros and cons of the change itself. The Center
for Stable Change helps people defuse and dissolve those emotion-based
reactions so that they can rationally solve the planning,
implementation, and follow-through problems of change. The
result? Changes that stick-and, executives, managers and employees
whose integrity remains intact.

Our strength is in helping transform resistance to
change into commitment and support for positive change. Only

for dissolving resistance to change. It is presented and discussed
at length in the new book, "Me? Change? Not Now. Not
Ever! How to Dissolve Hard-Core Resistance to Change in the
Workplace" (Editorial Annex, 2003). The book also includes
an innovative, common sense, way for thinking about resistance
and a new discussion format for talking about it.
Some of our guiding beliefs about change include:
- Our PERSONAL experience with change can help us become
better change leaders at work.
- The ultimate success of an organizational change initiative
depends on its employees, and their willingness to make
their INDIVIDUAL CONTRIBUTIONS to its success.
- RESISTANCE TO CHANGE is the single-most powerful threat
to successful change - both in the workplace and in our
