Workshop: Planning for Change
Pressure to change breeds resistance
Change projects can fail before they even begin. Dealing with
the most natural reaction to making a change, Resistance to
Change, in the earliest stages of planning can avert failure
Clear-headed problem solving is a casualty of resistance
Everyone affected by the change must understand and embrace
the part he or she is to play in making the project a success.
We cannot understand and solve the problems of the change
when distracted by an inner voice saying "Don't do it,
even if it might be a good thing to do!" This is resistance
to change in action.
Planning for Successful Change is the solution

of resistance - first dissolving our emotion-based resistance,
then our logical resistance. The workshop results in participants
