Part V: Maximizing Results > Overcoming Your Resistance to Change

Chapter 48. Overcoming Your Resistance to Change

Mentoring implies that you, the mentee, will eventually change as a result of the experience. Supervisors and managers who complain that people naturally resist change generally are doing something negative that causes others to be suspicious or hostile to new things. Three factors, if incorporated into the change process, can improve the likelihood that a proposed change will gain cooperation.

  1. People need time to learn about the nature of the change and to internalize what they learn. They want to know the why of it and how it will truly affect them.

  2. People want to influence or control change that affects them.

  3. If the change is understandable and supportable, people will want to contribute to the process—to become part of it.
